Chocolate Dipped Frozen Bananas


This is so easy, a child could do it.  In fact, I think it would be a fun project for kids!


Lots of bananas!  I chose to use cute baby ones, but you could also use full size
Almond Bark or Melted Chocolate, various flavors
Toppings galore!
Cake pop sticks or skewers

Do you really need these?

Start by peeling the bananas and laying out a long piece of wax paper.  Melt the chocolate or almond bark in the microwave, stirring to keep from burning.  Skewer each banana on one of the cake pop sticks.  Using the stick as a handle, dip the banana in the melted chocolate.  Allow the excess to drip off, then lay flat on wax paper and sprinkle immediately with the topping you plan to use.

Some of the toppings I used were M&Ms, toasted coconut, mini chocolate chips, toffee, candy coated sunflower seeds, and chopped nuts.

Allow the bananas to dry for about 20 minutes before moving them.  Once the chocolate has set, place bananas in a container and put in the freezer.  The bananas will be ready to eat in about an hour, but you can also make them a day ahead of time and leave them in the freezer overnight.  Yum!  The toasted coconut and toffee were my favorites!
