The lovely Rebecca over at The Beesley Buzz wrote a post regarding Kids in the Kitchen and her favourite photo and activity of the week was the Frozen Banana Penguins.
The picture on the left is courtesy of Rebecca and shows how fab her Banana Penguins turned out.
I have seen the Banana Penguins on Pinterest before and have admired them - FROM AFAR!
I struggle with the cupcakes - I shit you not, I can't even bake them properly - I try and blame a 2 year old but lets face it the ones he makes at nursery are superb!
So, where was I? oh yes -melting chocolate.
This is by no means a tutorial blog on how to make these if anything - its how NOT to do it!
The best part was smashing up the Easter eggs (we had a few Avengers left over from Easter).
Good news they melt lovely in the microwave. Can't tell you how long for as I was too busy cutting the bananas wrong (with daddy I might add, I can't take all the credit for that cock up).
Now the idea is to somehow dip, roll or something (can you tell I never read Reading Confetti's blog properly!) in melted chocolate - this is messy but finger licking good fun. In fact we spent a bit too much time with our fingers in the melted chocolate as it was quite clear very early on these bananas were going down hill fast!
Then somehow you're meant to add eyes and feet - Lord knows how. After managing to get at least 1 of the 'nanas standing up right the eyes just dripped down ... to the feet!
Anyway, I very very nearly didn't write this blog - but here is my 'nailed it' image
We did :)
