Frozen Chocolate and Peanut Covered Bananas


Kids will love dipping bananas in melted chocolate and rolling them in crushed peanuts to make this tasty frozen treat.


Ingredients

4 large ripe bananas, peeled and cut into thirds crosswise
3/4 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips, melted 
1/4 cup crushed peanuts

Directions

Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. 

Insert a Popsicle stick into the cut end of each banana half. 

Cover each piece of banana with melted chocolate using a rubber spatula and sprinkle with crushed peanuts  (Reheat chocolate, as needed, to keep it melted.) 

Place the bananas on the baking sheet and freeze until frozen, about 2 hours.

Tips:


To melt chocolate, microwave on Medium for 1 minute. 

Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted. 

Or place chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. 

Stir until melted.
