Banana Nut Wellingtons

OK, so I have a fascination at the moment with Wellington style food. First I made a Beef Wellington, tonight I have made Banana Nut Wellingtons and soon I will be delving into the Seafood World of Wellingtons. I love Puff Pastry and no I don't make my own, but I would like to sometime. Making Puff Pastry scares me ohooooooohohhhooooo, no, really it does, something about all the folding over and over again with butter. I will get there though.So tonight there are six kids in the house, one of them asleep. The others are nagging at me, come on Mum make dessert. So this is what I came up with. Really it is just putting a few things together. Cut up Cavendish bananas, dark chocolate melts, puff pastry, some beaten egg and flaked almonds. What could be simpler than that? Huh I tell you Easy Peasy!

All you have to do is put a few Cavendish banana slices in the middle of a square piece of pastry , just add on top about 6 large chocolate melts, fold it up into a parcels, with beaten egg to hold things together. Brush the tops with more beaten egg, sprinkle with flaked almonds and bake for 15 Min's or until golden brown on 210 degrees. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and your there. Easyiness!!!!!! Delicious, just be careful, the banana will be steaming hot, don't want to burn those taste buds. The melted chocolate just oozes out with the banana mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Crispy Pastry mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Ice Cream mmmmmmmmmmmmmm Crunchy Almonds mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Oh Yeah!!!!
