Ingredients

Directions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Insert a popsicle stick into each piece of banana. Cover each piece with melted chocolate using a rubber spatula and sprinkle with coconut. (Reheat chocolate, as needed, to keep it melted.) Place the bananas on the baking sheet and freeze until frozen, about 2 hours.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Store airtight in the freezer for up to 1 week.

Equipment: 12 wooden popsicle sticks

Tip: To melt chocolate, microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted. Or place chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.

Storage smarts: For long-term freezer storage, wrap your food in a layer of plastic wrap followed by a layer of foil. The plastic will help prevent freezer burn while the foil will help keep off-odors from seeping into the food.

Easy and Indulgent Such any easy dessert! When the bananas are frozen they take on a creamy texture almost like frozen yogourt. I didn't end up dipping mine but spreading the chocolate on them with a butter knife. I will try rolling them in nuts or sprinkles next time.: ) Pros: Easy Fast Read More

Here's an easier way to make these. After putting the popsicle sticks in the bananas put them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Freeze 1 hour. Pour melted chocolate into a tall glass and dunk the pops. Add sprinkles nuts or coconut immediately (the chocolate sets almost instantly). Return to the freezer. I took these to a July 4th celebration last night and came home with an empty container! Read More

Yummy Treat I really enjoyed these. I felt like I was getting away with eating something naughty:o) I will try the prefrozen bananas next time. I found that when using the fresh bananas the warm chocolate caused the banana's flesh to get slippery. Made for a difficult time. I used chopped peanuts and walnuts to dip them in. Read More

So easy and delicious! This is the perfect summer treat. They are super easy to make! I did end up "painting" the chocolate on the bananas with a spoon because the dipping wasn't working well. The finished product was better than I expected. It kinda made me realize that those Yonana machines (infomercial) might be good. When the banana froze it had the consistency of frozen yogurt. So good! Will definitely make them again! Read More
