Frozen Banana Pops dipped in Chocolate !

Super Easy yet Yummy Treats!!


Frozen Chocolate Banana Pops:

4 ounces (115 grams) semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
1 tablespoon light olive oil or vegetable oil
3 large ripe bananas

Chopped peanuts, pecans, hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts or pistachios
Toasted unsweetened coconut

Frozen Chocolate Banana Pops: 

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, wax paper, or aluminum foil.

Cut the bananas into 2 - 3 inch (5 - 7 cm) chunks. Insert a popsicle stick, bamboo skewer, or a chopstick into the pieces of banana. Place on the baking sheet and freeze for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate and oil (light olive oil or vegetable oil) in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. 

Then remove the bananas from the freezer and, taking one piece of banana at a time, dip in the melted chocolate, making sure the banana is completely covered with chocolate. 

If you like, roll or sprinkle over the chocolate coated banana in chopped nuts, toasted coconut, granola, or colored sprinkles.

Once completely frozen, the bananas can be stored in a covered container, for about one week. To soften the bananas, place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.
