Cay from Cajun Cottage Under the Oaks wrote one of my most used books: A Picture Perfect Childhood. It is a book full of gems of wisdom, concerning all sorts of picture books for both the young and old. One section is called "Let's Get Cooking with Literature"...and that is just what I am doing along with my "Kids in the Kitchen" posts.
This summer we will read picture books and make family fun (and recipes) from assorted books.
Our first book was No More Cookies! It is a very cute book about a mom who tells her daughter (and her monkey) No More Cookies! But she does suprise them with Magic Monkey Bananas. The recipe is in the back of the book.
All you need is:
chocolate (to coat the bananas-I used chocolate almond bark)
Do not chew on the chocolate like this.
Peel the bananas and cut in half
Put a popsicle stick into the bananas
Carefully melt the chocolate
Dip the bananas into the chocolate. We had to also spoon some chocolate onto the bananas.
Roll your bananas in the sprinkles.
We laid our magic monkey bananas on parchment paper.
Place in the freezer for at least two hours.
Remove from freezer and enjoy.
