sometimes when i come up with things like this i feel like an evil genius. it was late last night, i was desperate for something sweet, and c was unable to help me locate a secret chocolate stash in the house. but then i remembered my baking supplies! sure enough, i unearthed a hunk of callebaut bittersweet chocolate in the pantry and devised a devious plot.
i made an impromptu ganache by microwaving some chopped chocolate (gently) and then stirring in some half and half. i then took some banana chunks, coated them in the ganache, and then rolled them in chopped up salted pistachios. i put them in the freezer for as long as i could possibly stand to wait (roughly a half an hour, should have been longer) and then enjoyed this treat immensely.
sure, it looks like doo-doo, but trust me, it was delicious.
