Crispy Banana Boats
4 medium banana's, peeled and quartered
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
3/4 cup mini marshmallows
1 package spring roll wrappers (available in asian food stores in the frozen foods section)
Ice cream for serving
About 30 minutes before using the spring roll wrappers, remove from freezer and cover with a wet paper towel. Keep covered, they will dry out fast! Place one quarter of a banana in one corner of the spring roll wrapper. Sprinkle with mini marshmallows and chocolate. Moisten the sides of the spring roll wrapper with water. Begin to roll to the opposing corner. After the first turn, fold in the sides, and roll to the opposite side. This will resemble a closed tube. Place on a waxed paper lined plate and freeze for 20 minutes or until ready to cook.
To cook: Heat 2-inches cannola or peanut oil in a frying pan. Heat oil to 350F degrees. Fry 3 at a time for approximately 2 minutes. The filling will begin to turn soft and the outside wrapper will be golden brown. Drain on a paper towel lined plate. Serve warm with vanilla or coconut ice cream. And sprinkle with powdered (10X) sugar. BE CAREFUL THE FILLING IS VERY HOT!
