We had so much left over chocolate fondue, I was trying to think of ways to use it besides just eating it or freezing it. I'm not quite sure where I got the idea for Chocolate Banana Pops, but I decided to make some and let me tell you, I'm so glad I did. Besides the fact the are super easy to make, I figure they're a healthier dessert than a big old bowl of ice cream or piece of cake... and they taste so, so, SO, good!
Chocolate Banana Pops
4 large bananas
Melted Chocolate (I used left over Mexican Chocolate Fondue)
Crushed peanuts, cereal, candy, or crackers (I used peanuts, Kashi Go Lean Crunch, and Cinnamon Wheat Thins)
8 Popsicle Sticks or Skewers
Baking Dish (I used 13x9)
Line dish with wax paper. Cut bananas in half and insert skewer and place in baking dish. Place in freezer uncovered for about 2 hours
After bananas have been in the freezer, melt chocolate and pour into baking dish or bowl. Roll banana in chocolate to coat. Roll in crushed topping of your choice.
Place back in dish and put in the freeze. I like to let mine sit overnight, I keep the dish uncovered for a few hours and then I put the lid on.
