Banana Split On a Stick

Banana Split On a Stick

Ingredients

  • 4 large bananas, ripe but firm
  • 8 wooden popsicle sticks
  • 1/4 cup granola cereal OR finely chopped salted peanuts
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Optional: whipped cream and cherries for garnish

Directions

  1. Peel, then cut each banana in half horizontally and insert wooden stick into each half. Place in zip-top bag or cover in plastic wrap and place in freezer until frozen, about 3 hours.
  2. Spread out granola (or peanuts) on a flat surface, such as shallow dish, cutting board or baking sheet
  3. Melt chocolate chips using a double boiler or by placing in a glass bowl and microwaving for 30 seconds, stirring, and continuing this same routine for 15-second increments until chocolate is velvety smooth. Pour melted chocolate into a tall glass and carefully dip each frozen banana into the glass, twirling to coat at least the top half. Then immediately roll in the granola or chopped peanuts.
  4. Serve or place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and stash in the freezer for future treats.
  5. For a fun serving presentation, lay pops on an individual banana split tray and top each with a squirt of whipped cream and cherry.
