    Serves: 10 

    • 10 paddlepop sticks

    1. Insert 1 stick into the cut end of each banana. Place the bananas on a greaseproof paper covered baking tray and freeze until the bananas are frozen, about 2 hours.
    2. Melt the chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave).
    3. Dip the frozen bananas in the melted chocolate, spooning the chocolate over the banana to cover it completely. Roll in coconut if desired. Place the dipped bananas on the paper-covered baking tray and freeze until the chocolate is firm.

    Huge fun for my youngest boy and I to have today while everyone else was out. I used organic bananas, extra-dark chocolate chips and we used both chopped salted peanuts and toasted coconut to roll the bananas. We were able to make these this morning and they were ready to enjoy after Quiet Time. HUGE hit. We loved this.  -  03 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Cute and creative - not to mention delicious! This reicpe is definitely one for kids of all ages. My niece and I had fun decoating these we used a variety of items including: chopped peanuts, coconut, M&M's, colored sprinkles, and mini marshmallows. These not only look good, but taste good too! Thanks for a great recipe and a fun activity!  -  10 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    What a fun and yummy recipe, not to mention another terrific use for those over ripe bananas. I never would have thought to make these myself ~ one of the reasons I love this site so much. They were easy for the kids to handle and dip in the chocolate themselves, which is great, because when you've 'made' it yourself, it tastes so much better! We dipped, then rolled in chopped peanuts. One tip: take the bananas out of the freezer only one or two at a time to dip. The dipping, rolling (and reheating of the chocolate halfway through) process takes just enough time that half of our bananas had become soft and wet on the outside which meant the chocolate kept sliding off when we went to dip them. Thanks for giving us a fun and nutritious snack recipe for the kids!  -  11 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
