Chocolate Banana “Popsicles”

Chocolate Banana “Popsicles”

So…this is not a recipe. Not really.

It’s more of a snack idea — sort of a cross between a banana and a chocolate fudgsicle. But it was totally delectable and fun to make! I have seen this idea on Pinterest from several websites several times, and finally gave it a try.

The best part about this snack is that you can make it any way you want, with any coating you want. I think it’d be fabulous with crushed Oreos… ❤

Ingredients:

1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 bananas
*1/4 c. granola (any kind works!)
*1/4 c. chopped almonds

*Optional, for rolling

Melt the chocolate in a saucepan, over another larger saucepan of boiling water. {Keeps the chocolate from burning, of which I am usually the queen.} Stir occasionally until totally melted.

Cut each banana in half and place a popsicle stick halfway into the center of each banana half. Using a rubber spatula {or any other utensil that can spread} spread chocolate over 3/4 of the banana half. If desired, roll the banana halves in the granola or chopped almonds for an extra flavor and texture boost!

Place an inch apart on a cookie sheet covered in tin foil, and place in the fridge or freezer. I like freezing them — so you can eat them quicker — then storing them in plastic baggies in the fridge. The bananas stay fairly soft, but the chocolate remains hard.

Hubby loves the granola ones, I love the almond ones, and Bundle eats everything. 😀

I’m a sucker for dipped cones at McDonald’s, but these are totally doubling as a craving filler right now!

Hope you enjoy! ❤

**Edit! On my second go around making these, I noticed the bananas turned a little mushy after being stored in the fridge for a day or two. I’m thinking as long as you use just-ripe bananas (and not overripe) you should be fine for storing them for a few more days in the fridge!
