Now that it’s getting a bit warmer and very humid here on Long Island, I need a yummy snack that cools me down. Banana Pops have always been my favorite treat to have at amusement parks, but they’re also so easy to make yourself at home! And honestly, anything covered in chocolate is usually good, but these bit-sized gems are truly the best.
Milk chocolate bar
My toppings of choice: Almonds and Sprinkles!
My not-so-ripe bananas
What to do:
Start by chopping up your banana into bite-sized chunks
Next, arrange your toppings in separate plates so that we can roll the chocolate-coated bananas around in them. You can use sprinkles, almonds, coconut shavings- anything you have!
In a microwave-safe bowl, add your milk chocolate bar and pop into the microwave. I usually melt my chocolate in 15 second increments, assuring that the chocolate does not burn.
Now that your chocolate is melted, take a banana chunk and a spoon and glaze the banana with the melted chocolate.
Roll them around in your toppings! Then add popsicle sticks into the tops!
On a plate or tray, pop these guys into the freezer for about an hour.
The beauty of these is that you can make a bunch of them, and store in your freezer for whenever you feel like having a little treat! These are great for kids: when they’re begging for ice cream, take these out of the freezer for them to eat and you won’t have to worry about an insane sugar rush!
