Banana Fudge Bombs

Gonna take you back in time a little bit. How many of you remember Banana Fudgesicles / Fudge Bombs? They had a fudge stripe and banana stripe and a fudge stripe. They still sell them here and there, but usually there. Made these yesterday and got thumbs up all around. Next batch will be banana only.


2 Tbsp cornstarch
sprinkle of salt
1 1/2 c milk
1/4 c light corn syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp banana extract (I love banana flavor but, you could omit it if you don't have it)
1/2 c chocolate chips
2 very ripe bananas (blend them up for a smoother bomb)


Mix the first five ingredients together in a saucepan. Once combined, bring to a boil over medium heat and stir for one to two minutes until it has thickened up, don't worry it will. Turn off heat and stir in chocolate chips until they have completely melted. Now mix in your mashed banana, stir until completely blended. When it is totally mixed in take off heat. This pudding will thicken up when it cools down. If you are not making fudgesicles immediately just go ahead and transfer your mix to a bowl and cover in plastic, make sure the plastic actually touches pudding surface to prevent a skin from forming. Put away in refrigerator until ready to make.
All you do next is fill your molds or paper cups with the fudgesicle mix. If using paper cups, place plastic over them and stick a wooden stick in through plastic wrap. This made enough for 6 bomb molds.
 Freeze for 4 hours or more.
Enjoy!
