Salted Maple Grilled Bananas

3 tablespoons maple sugar or dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely grated
1 pinch of kosher salt
3 bananas (just ripe with slightly green stems)
4 ounces dark chocolate (about 60% cocoa), melted
12 thin ginger cookies

Light a grill and heat to around 500° F. Mix together brown sugar, syrup, ginger and salt into a thick paste. Peel and slice each banana into four equal lengths and pierce each section with a bamboo skewer. Coat bananas with the mixture.

Brush clean and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Lay banana pieces onto the grill and allow the sugar mixture to caramelize for about two minutes, then rotate 1/3 of the way around and continue grilling for another two minutes. Rotate 1/3 turn more and grill for a final two minutes. Remove, dip in dark chocolate and set on a thin ginger cookie. Let cool for a minute or two before serving.

Makes 12 servings.
