Recipe: Frozen Chocolate Covered Bananas


My Mom, Grandma, and Aunt...and all our desserts

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day with the important ladies in your lives! Our family headed over to my aunt's house for lots of food, sangria, and beautiful weather. My mom and I were in charge of desserts and we came across a recipe for frozen chocolate covered bananas and knew it would be perfect! This happens to be one of my aunt's favorite treats at Disney so we knew we had to make it. 

Recipe adapted from Epicurious.com

Frozen Chocolate Bananas
Makes 12

Ingredients:

  • One Bunch Bananas
  • 12 oz semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (we made some of each!)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (we used coconut oil instead)
  • Peanuts, Toffee, Sprinkles, whatever you would like to top your bananas with
  • You'll also need popsicle sticks


Instructions:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Peel bananas and cut in half. Insert popsicle stick into each banana. Line on baking sheet and freeze for at least 15 minutes (I would suggest 30-minutes to an hour).
  3. Before pulling the bananas out of the freezer, melt the chocolate chips until smooth.
  4. Roll each frozen banana in the melted chocolate. I used a spoon to cover the bananas and found there was less of a chance the popsicle stick would come out of the banana
  5. Immediately sprinkle toppings on chocolate dipped banana. Place back on baking sheet.
  6. Freeze at least 30 minutes until chocolate sets. Serve out of freezer or store in freezer in airtight container for up to one week.









Viola, your own chocolate covered frozen banana! These will be great treats on the warm summer days that are coming!
