Frozen Summer Treat

Chocolate Peanut Butter Dipped Banana Pops


  • 3 bananas
  • 1 cup chocolate-chips
  • 2 tablespoons all-natural peanut butter


  • 9 wooden popsicle sticks
  • parchment paper
  1. Peel bananas and cut into three sections. Gently insert a popsicle stick into the center.
  2. Place on a parchment paper lined tray and place in the freezer while you melt your chocolate.
  3. Combine chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium (power 6-7) until melted. Stir with a spatula until smooth.
  4. Pour melted chocolate into a tall, narrow glass or container. Remove bananas from freezer. Dip, one by one, into the chocolate, letting it ooze up the sides of the glass and coat the banana.
  5. Place bananas on tray again and sprinkle with nuts, if desired. Freeze until solid.
  6. Allow to sit at room temperature for about five minutes. Keep up your heels & enjoy!
