  1. Place chocolate chips, cream, and vanilla extract into a small saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until the chocolate chips have melted. Stir in the Cointreau and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add bananas, cut-side down, and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn bananas over, and continue cooking until golden brown on the other side, 3 to 4 minutes more.
  3. To serve, ladle some of the sauce onto the center of 6 plates. Place two banana halves onto each plate, and sprinkle with toasted almonds.

I enjoyed this. It was easy and quick, and the instructions for the bananas was right on. The sauce though, would have benefited from less alcohol - I probably used 2/3 of what the recipe stated and it still tasted like a bit too much. That said, I will still make this again - it was a fast, easy, and elegant dessert. Thank you!


I expected the chocolate sauce to be a little thicker. Also, I thought the alcohol was really over powering for me.


After I cooked the bananas I dipped them in the chocolate sauce and then placed them on plate, I sprinkled them with confectioners sugar whipped cream in middle, nuts on top.!!!
