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.

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 0.125" to 0.25" (3mm to 6mm). Let the gel set fully. Using a cookie cutter or pastry round, cut out circles 2" to 4" (50mm to 100m) in diameter.
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.
