Banana Ravioli with Nutella

For these party treats I make a gelled ravioli from bananas and cream and fill them with one of my wife's favorite toppings, Nutella. I top them off with some shaved chocolate and mint leaves. Sometimes I'll add some whipped cream or even serve them aside a scoop of vanilla ice cream. They are a fun and flavorful dessert.

Banana Ravioli Instructions

For the Banana Ravioli

Prepare a sheet pan with parchment paper, silpat, or acetate sheets.

Combine all ingredients and blend well until fully combined. Heat in a pot, bring to a boil while stirring occasionally. Let simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring regularly.

Pour the banana mixture out onto the sheet pan, aiming for a depth of 3mm to 6mm (0.125" to 0.25"). Let the gel set fully. Using a cookie cutter or pastry round, cut out circles 50mm to 100m (2" to 4") in diameter.

To Assemble

Place a dollop of Nutella on each ravioli. Gently fold the ravioli in half, creating a half-moon shape. Top with a mint leaf and some shaved chocolate.
