Bananas and chocolate - yummy!

So, this week is all about our favorite dessert recipes which is fairly easy for me. Our family loves desserts and I have always loved trying new recipes for our 'outings'. First and foremost, I must admit that I stole this picture out of the cookbook only because this has been a really busy week and I totally didn't have time to make this!! I promise to do better :)

But...this is one of my favorite dessert recipes and it's really easy -
