“Frozen banana on a stick, dipped in peanut butter and yummy toppings!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -6 bananas, peeled, cut into three sections
  • 10 -20 candy sticks (popsicle sticks or sucker sticks will work)
  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon paraffin wax (Parowax, a chunk about the size of a stick of gum for every 1 cup of peanut butter)
  • Toppings
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chip
  • 1 cup mini M&M'
  • 1 cup peanuts, chopped
  • 1 cup colored sprinkles


  1. Peel the bananas, cut into three sections, about 2 inches long.
  2. Poke the stick well into the banana.
  3. Place on a sheet and into the freezer for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.
  4. Melt the peanut butter and wax over boiling water. A small 1-cup pyrex measuring cup hung over the side of the pot of water works well, it's narrow enough to have the peanut butter deep enough for dipping.
  5. Remove your bananas from the freezer, and have your toppings ready in individual plates or bowls. One at a time, dip your banana into the peanut butter and turn it to coat. Lift it out and allow excess to drip and the coating to harden just a little.
  6. Roll it in your topping of choice and lay on a sheet lined with waxed paper.
  7. Once all are dipped and coated, you can place them back in the freezer until ready to serve. Remove from freezer 5 to 10 minutes before, just so they are soft enough to eat.
