“A real treat for the kids that looks like you went to a lot of fuss. You didn't. Adults like 'em too.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 firm bananas (slightly underripe)
  • 8 ounces semisweet baking chocolate
  • candy sprinkles, as needed


  1. Place a sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet and set aside.
  2. Peel bananas; cut each one in half.
  3. Push a popsicle stick into each banana half, in about two inches.
  4. Either in a heavy saucepan over low heat, or in the microwave, melt chocolate.
  5. Pour melted chocolate into a tall drinking glass; it should be about 2/3 full.
  6. Holding popsicle stick, lower banana into the melted chocolate until it's completely covered.
  7. Give it a gentle turn and slowly pull banana out, letting excess chocolate drip back into glass.
  8. Immediately roll in desired topping: recommended are candy sprinkles of any colour, or crushed nuts.
  9. Put coated bananas on wax-paper-lined sheet and stash in your freezer, uncovered, until the bananas are solid.
  10. Place frozen bananas in an airtight freezer bag and keep stored in your freezer.
  11. Serve frozen.
