20130222-141656.jpg

12 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 ripe bananas
1 cup heavy cream, whipped to stiff peaks (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup roasted salted peanuts, chopped
Nonstick cooking spray and waxed paper, for loaf pan

Prep Day: Coat an 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch loaf pan with cooking spray; line with waxed paper, leaving overhang on both long sides. Set aside.

Melt chocolate; cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, in a food processor, puree bananas until smooth.

Stir peanut butter into cooled chocolate until combined, then stir in banana puree. Gently fold in whipped cream until combined. Pour into prepared pan; top with peanuts. Fold waxed paper over top; wrap tightly in plastic. Freeze until firm, at least 3 hours.

Serve Day: Remove loaf from pan (run a hot towel across sides and bottom of pan, if necessary). Slice about 1/2 inch thick, as needed.

Note: Rewrap remaining (unsliced) loaf, and freeze up to 1 month.
