Frozen Banana Pops

Cooking With Kids

Frozen bananas have the texture of ice cream. They make a great cool treat on hot summer days. You can buy Chiquita Chocolate Flavored Banana Pop Kit or use this recipe I found on the skinnytaste web site. Let the kids help make these yummy treats by adding toppings of crushed nuts or sprinkles to this treat. Adding a little oil to the chocolate helps thin the chocolate and therefore you will use less on each popsicle. You will need enough chocolate to dip the bananas, but you will be left with extra chocolate in the end. Click here to see how to make frozen yogurt pops.

You Will Need:

4 medium ripe bananas
16 oz semi-sweet chocolate
1 tsp canola oil
Popsicle sticks
Toppings like crushed nuts or sprinkles (optional)
Waxed paper
Baking sheet

What to Do:

1. Insert popsicle sticks into bananas and freeze on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. (The recipe suggests cutting bananas in half so they don’t roll).
2. When the bananas are frozen, fill a coffee mug with chocolate.
3. Melt chocolate in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring until the chocolate is melted and soft.
4. Dip the bananas one at a time into the chocolate, scraping off the excess chocolate from the back of the banana, and place it on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
5. Quickly add the toppings on the rounded side before the chocolate hardens.
6. Place on wax paper and return to the freezer until frozen and ready to eat.
