- 5 to 6 ripe bananas cut in half
- 1 & 1/2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3 teaspoons of coconut oil
- chops sticks cut in half or pop cycle sticks
- Pyrex measuring cup
- Pint mason jar
- 1 cup of chopped honey-roasted peanuts
- optional sprinkles – S’more
- waxed paper
- Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper.
- Peel and cut the bananas in half.
- Insert a pop cycle stick or 1/2 a chopstick in the middle of the banana as straight as possible.
- Place the bananas on the cookie sheet on the wax paper about 1 inch apart and freeze for at least 1 hour.
- After the bananas are frozen, start by melting the chocolate chips in a pyrex measuring cup. Melt in the microwave 15 seconds at a time until the chocolate is melted and there are not any lumps. After melting if your measuring cup is not deep enough, transfer the melted chocolate to a tall glass cup or pint mason jar.
- Prepare your peanuts by giving them a rough chop. This can be done in the food processor, by hand, or by crushing them in a plastic bag with a rolling pin.
- Have all the topping ready chopped and on a plate or paper plate
- Take the frozen bananas out of the freezer only a few at a time. Dip the frozen banana into the melted chocolate at an angle so the banana doesn’t slip off the stick. Let drip a little back into the container.
- Roll the chocolate covered banana in the peanuts or other toppings.
- Place back on a cookie sheet to be put back in the freezer
- Freeze for at least 2 to 3 hours and then enjoy.
- No water – Keep water away from the chocolate as you melt it or it will seize.
- Work with 5 frozen bananas at a time as they can start to warm up and not coat in the chocolate.
- Store extra leftover chocolate in the fridge for the next batch
