Ze Jamaican Coconut Banana Wheels ***

The 7-year-old saw this one on Disney Junior's "Tasty Time with ZeFronk," and he immediately wanted to make it.  Since he fell on the playground at school this morning and busted his chin open, requiring a trip to the urgent care to be glued back together, I decided to baby him a little.  We picked up the ingredients and made this for dessert tonight.  They were really good!  The cocoa flavor was a little too strong for the kids, so I'm thinking I will either mix a little powdered sugar into the cocoa or mix the coconut and cocoa together before rolling the bananas in there.  That would let the coconut help bring out some sweetness in the cocoa.  Either way, we'll definitely do these again.  They loved that they could make them on their own!
