Mini Chocolate-Dipped Bananas

What you need:

  • 3 firm but ripe bananas
  • 2 cups chocolate chips or chunks, melted
  • 1/2 cup nuts of your choice, finely chopped
  • 9 to 12 lollipop or popsicle sticks

Directions:

  1. Peel and slice bananas into thirds or fourths. Put each banana piece on a stick. Making sure they don't touch, wrap your plate or dish with Saran wrap and place in the freezer for 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Melt your chocolate via a double boiler over the stove or in the microwave.
  3. Place on wax paper or foil. Place bananas back into the freezer for 30 minutes and then transfer to a freezer safe container or a ziploc bag until you are ready to eat them.
  4. Dip bananas in chocolate and then into nuts - if you have a kiddo with a food allergy, I'm sure you could do sprinkles.
