“Another fabulous SL recipe for chocolate and banana lovers. It is delicious warm or cold. I have made this many times and it never fails to please everyone! I have estimated the time to make it- sounds like a lot of steps, but it goes together really quickly and best of is foolproof! Make sure you use a big enough bowl since it makes quite a lot, especially if you decide to add extra bananas. I also guessed at the # of servings since it really depends on how much you "dish out" for each person.”
