Chocolate Dipped Bananas with  Mini-Marshmallows — yummy recipe full of childhood memories!

Chocolate Dipped Bananas with Mini Marshmallows from {nifty thrifty things}

These chocolate dipped bananas were the result of another creative itch of my mom’s and mine. We found the inspiration at the local fair — Freimarkt. Freimarkt is a state fair with rides, games and best of all: food. This year in October marks the 982. annual “5th season” here in Bremen.

Carnival food always reminds me of childhood and I’m looking forward to sharing the tradition of going to the fair with Ella when she gets a little older.

For now, Ella doesn’t eat any processed sugar — so plain banana it is for her. But since posting pictures of plain bananas would be a little boring, we thought we’d dress them up a little. ;)
