For our Arrested Development themed party (watch the video below!) we made Bluth Frozen Bananas for our guests. (We also made corn balls.) Here’s how it’s done!

Ingredients:

  • Bananas
  • Peanuts
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Skewers/popsicle sticks (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Skewer your bananas through the bottom (like a popsicle) if you want skewers. I recommend cutting your bananas in half! Put these on a tray in a freezer while you heat your chocolate.
  2. Crush up your peanuts and set them aside on a plate or shallow bowl.
  3. Pour your chocolate chips into a microwaveable container and microwave for 30 seconds. Keep cooking for small increments of time (10-30 seconds) while stirring the chocolate in between to help it melt. (You can also use whatever your favorite way of melting chocolate is!)
  4. Take out your bananas (they don’t really have to be frozen!) and cover them in the melted chocolate, then peanuts.
  5. Put your bananas onto a tray covered with butcher paper in the freezer for 10-15 minutes until frozen.

Arrested Development Cornball Recipe

Standard

We made some cornballs (along with some Bluth frozen bananas!) for our Arrested Development party video. They actually turned out to be very tasty! Here’s what you’ll need:

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of corn (creamed corn style preferred)
  • 1 cup crushed crackers
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Lots of oil (for deep frying)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mix the egg, corn, sugar, baking powder, and crackers in a large bowl. If you used regular corn instead of creamed corn, you may need to add some flour or extra crushed crackers to help the batter consistency.
  2. Heat up a large amount of oil in a pot or deep fryer, and make it very hot. BE CAREFUL. When deep frying any dish, hot oil tends to splash everywhere, “Every time!” Scoop into a round spoon like a teaspoon (if you want the round shape) and deep fry. Flip over to the other side when done (about 1 minute each side).
  3. When cornballs are done frying, place them on a paper towel to dry and cool down. Then, eat and enjoy!
