Chocolate Frozen Bananas

A yummy and fun to make treat any time of year.  We especially like them at our house in the summer to cool down!

Ingredients:

8 medium bananas, peeled
8 wooden popsicle sticks
32 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped or chips
4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Decorations for dipping the banana:   granola, chopped nuts, sprinkles, jimmies, crushed cookies, and toasted coconut, chopped chocolate or candy bars.

For holidays use the color sprinkles of the holiday. For example, green or red sprinkles.

Directions:

Line a sheet pan with waxed paper. Cut 1-inch off the end of each banana. Insert a popsicle stick into the cut-end of each banana, pushing the stick halfway in, leaving the other end exposed for use as a handle. Place the bananas on the sheet pan and freeze one hour.

These were done by a five and seven year old.  They cut the banana with a butter knife and prepared bananas for freezing.

Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally.

Arrange the dipping decorations on several flat plates. Working with 1 banana at a time, dip it in the chocolate and turn to completely coat (spoon some on, if needed). Roll the dipped banana in the desired decorations, transfer to the sheet pan, and return to the freezer.

Once frozen, store the bananas in an airtight container.

TIP: When having little ones over we cut the banana in half making two chocolate covered bananas out of one.  It is also much easier for the children to help make and decorate.
