2 firm ripe bananas
1 cup grapes (about 32), ideally a mix of green and red
8 10-inch wooden skewers
1 ½ ounces dark chocolate (60-70% cocoa solids), finely chopped
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Cut the banana into ½-inch thick rounds.
Skewer the fruit, alternating two grapes for each piece of banana and place the fruit skewers onto the lined tray.
Place the chocolate in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir well, and microwave another 10 seconds if necessary to melt the chocolate. Using a spoon drizzle the melted chocolate onto the fruit skewers.
Place the tray in the freezer for at least 2 hours. Once frozen, skewers may be transferred to a sealable plastic bag where they will keep in the freezer for up to a week. Allow to soften at room temperature for 5 minutes before eating.
