Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 -12 wooden popsicle sticks
  • 4 bananas

  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and clear a spot in the freezer for it.
  2. Peel and cut bananas into halves or thirds depending on size and preference. Insert a popsicle stick halfway into each one leaving a good handle. Place bananas on baking sheet and freeze for 1 hour.
  3. Place toppings on separate shallow plates.
  4. Slowly melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in a dish set over boiling water (do not get any water droplets in the chocolate or it will sieze) or use your favorite method for melting chocolate. :).
  5. One at a time, spoon chocolate over each banana as needed to cover.
  6. Once the banana has been covered with chocolate, roll lightly in desired topping, then return to the freezer to harden. Repeat with remaining bananas. Can also be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
