I LOVE bananas. I also, like most girls, love me some chocolate. Luckily, my next recipe combines the two! Here is a sweet summertime snack that is sure to cool you down and tame your sweet tooth.

Ingredients:frozen-bananas-1

  • 5 large bananas
  • 10 wooden sticks
  • 24 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • Fun toppings like nuts or sprinkles

Peel the bananas and cut them in half so you have 10 banana slices. Skewer the cut end of each banana with a wooden stick and place them on a lined baking sheet. Freeze them for about an hour. While they are freezing, place your chopped chocolate chips in a bowl and microwave them for 30 seconds, then stir, then melt them again for 30 seconds and do this process until they are smooth. Place the banana toppings into bowls. Once your bananas are frozen, take one at a time and hold them over the chocolate bowl, using a large spoon to cover the bananas. Act quickly when covering them and dipping them in toppings, because the chocolate hardens fast! After they are covered, lay them back on the baking sheet.

Now you are ready to enjoy! This is a fun warm weather treat to make with your friends, and it is even more fun to devour them!

XOXO, Chels
