This is a very simple chocolate banana puffs recipe. It only has a few delicious ingredients that when combined make for a wonderful treat! Chocolate, whipped cream and bananas stuffed inside flaky puff pastry dough, topped with more chocolate and then sprinkled with coconut. How can you go wrong, YUM!
2 sheets puff pastry ( 1 box )
3/4 cup chocolate frosting
6 oz. whipped cream ( I just used cool whip )
2 bananas ( 1/8 in. slice )
6 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
2 oz. dry sweet coconut flakes
Method: Chocolate Banana Puffs
Cut the puff pastry sheets into 9 equal squares each. This will give you 18 squares. Press the squares into a muffin pan ( you might need two pans ) and use a fork to poke a few holes in the bottom of the pastry, this is called docking and helps to prevent the bottoms from rising. Place in a preheated 400 degree oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, remove and let cool. The middle of the pastry might pop up on you but don’t worry, after it has cooled just use your fingers and press it down in the middle to form little cups. Add the whipped cream and chocolate frosting to a large mixing bowl and fold together, then fold in the sliced bananas. Spoon the mixture into your puff pastry cups.
Add the chocolate chips to a double boiler and melt. You can also use a microwave for this as well. Spoon about a tablespoon of the melted chocolate on top of your cups and sprinkle with the coconut. You could also use chopped nuts instead if you like. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to harden the chocolate top and serve. You can also make a nifty little pie with this recipe! Just use a pre-made graham cracker or chocolate pie crust by adding the filling to it and spread the melted chocolate and coconut over the top.
