The recipe given below is a modern twist on the Elizabethan original.
Chocolate and Banana FoolServes: 4
Ingredients:115g (4 oz) plain chocolate, broken into small pieces
300ml (1 1/4 cups) custard
chocolate shavings, to garnish
Method:Place the chocolate pieces in a heat-proof bowl and either melt in a microwave or over a pan of barely-simmering water. Stir the chocolate until smooth then pour the custard into a bowl and gently fold in the melted chocolate until you have a rippled effect.
Peel and slice the bananas then stir the pieces into the chocolate and custard mix. Spoon the resultant mixture into four glasses. Set aside to chill for at least 30 minutes before topping with the chocolate shavings and serving.
