chunky monkey-inspired chocolate bark

January 28, 2014

Once upon a time I was sitting enjoying some banana chips that my mother left me.  Then I got the bright idea to dip them in Nutella.  (Pregnancy, what can I say?).  While enjoying my little indulgence, I was reminded of how much I love Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream.  Then, this idea was born–a banana, chocolate, and walnut bark inspired by that tasty treat.

Three ingredients, folks, that’s all.  Banana chips.  Toasted walnuts.  Chocolate chips.

It is everything I want it to be.  Or so I thought…until I put it on ice cream…of the plain vanilla persuasion.  HEAVEN!

    If I eat this on my greek yogurt, that makes it more healthy, right? (WINK WINK).

    I love BJ’s Chunky Monkey ice cream too! This looks so ridiculously good Anne. That last photo with the ice cream kills me.

      Thanks! The combo of the ice cream and the bark was over the top!

    Um…YUM! Chunky Monkey is my favorite! Did you use non-stick spray on the foil? I’m making this for our vacation treat bags.
