Could This Be the Best Banana Bread Ever?

Could This Be the Best Banana Bread Ever?

I miss Strauss Banana Chocolate Ice Cream I used to buy at the Berkelely Bowl in California. The sweet flavors of roasted, ripe bananas and chocolate chips blended into a smooth, rich dessert. So I attempted to bring back the taste today– and I went via the highway and instead of using regular chocolate chips I used small Bulk Barn chocolate medallions.

This is an amazing recipe but:

It says 55 minutes baking time- check it at 47 minutes and don’t use anything but chocolate chips because some of the medallions melted fully and formed a loaf bottom that was a little crusty although everyone else said it was great!
