Here in Guatemala, choco-bananos are a very popular snack for kids on hot days. They are just frozen bananas on a stick, dipped into chocolate and refrozen. Sometimes they have crushed peanuts on them. I decided to take this to a more sophisticated level with Choco-Banano ice cream. It turned out wonderfully and was SO delicious that it vanished the same day I made it.
This recipe is very simple, though it does require an ice cream maker.
