I warned y’all a few weeks ago that I was trying to use up my popsicle sticks before moving. These frozen chocolate-covered bananas aren’t popsicles, but they are an equally delicious frozen treat!
If you’ve ever eaten breakfast with me, then you know that bananas are a serious part of my daily intake. If I don’t start my day with a banana, my whole day is thrown off. I don’t have much of a reason besides perhaps a mild case of OCD, but it does mean that my kitchen is always stocked with bananas.
Of course, beyond breakfast, I also enjoy banana treats such as banana bread, ice cream or even frozen bananas! I had my first one a few months ago and I couldn’t wait to recreate it at home. Turns out, making frozen chocolate-covered bananas is super easy. Stupidly easy in fact. Plus, there’s always money in the banana stand, so perhaps we should all be making these?
Whip up a batch of these next time you buy too many bananas and keep them in a tupperware in your freezer for when you’re craving a healthy(ish) frozen snack.
Celebrations are in order
I’m using my frozen chocolate-covered bananas to celebrate finally bringing my blog over to WordPress! Some of you may have noticed that things are looking a little different around here. I did the big move last week and spent hours this weekend fixing just about everything. I’ve never spent so much time over the course of three days working on Sweet Sundays but there’s a first for everything I suppose. Despite the struggles with the turnover, I’m still so happy to have made the move and hopefully y’all can enjoy the upgraded search functionalities and actually be able to find my older posts.
- 3-5 bananas
- 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup topping of your choice, chopped (I used graham crackers, almonds and yogurt-covered raisins)
- Slice the bananas into 3 and place each piece on a popsicle stick. Freezer until completely frozen, about 3 hours.
- Once bananas are frozen, prep chocolate and toppings. First, melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Once melted, dip one banana at a time and then gently roll in topping. Place in freezer until firm, about an hour. Repeat with the rest of the bananas.
