Dark chocolate frozen banana pops

      10
After making these Dark Chocolate Frozen Banana Pops, I"m not really sure why ice cream is a thing. Wait...let me rephrase that, because I totally know why ice cream is a thing. I mean, if you have never had a frozen banana, you really should. They are so creamy, sweet, and so much healthier than a normal ice cream bar. We dipped ours in dark chocolate (oh yeah...). Then we rolled the bananas in chopped pecans (keeps getting better, huh?)

How to lớn Make the Very Best Dark Chocolate Frozen Banana Pops

My husband loves frozen banana bites. Have you made them? They are all over Pinterest. You simply take bananas, slice them into ½ inch thick slices, smear them with peanut butter (chunky, of course), and dip them in chocolate. Then freeze.

Not really... I mean, yes I love making him food that he loves to eat. But those are quite messy and time consuming.

But I had the craving. The hankering for a chocolate covered frozen banana. & Mr. Buy This Cook That likes lớn indulge in his nightly ice cream treat, and we didn"t have any ice cream in the house.

So I conned my youngest daughter into helping me make frozen banana pops. (Trust me, it didn"t take much persuasion once she saw the dark chocolate.)

Same concept...only on a stick. Và who doesn"t love food on a stick?!

There is likely a way-more professional way of coating your bananas in chocolate. However, I am not a professional, so I opted for a tall-ish narrow glass.

I bet you could also melt the chocolate in the bottom of a shallow dish and roll the banana. (Hindsight is 20/20.)

You can you any topping you"d like. I used roughly chopped pecans (so divine).

My little partner opted for sprinkles và funfetti. (Yes, the funfetti has appeared again. Did you see our Funfetti Cake Batter Waffles? You need to. Like...yesterday!)

Here are some more ideas:

shredded coconutcocoa powder (if you are a serious dark chocolate lover)sea salt (yeah you know what"s up)

Once all of your bananas are coated to lớn your satisfaction, place them on wax paper on a baking sheet or dish. Pop them into the freezer for at least 2 hours.

(After the frozen banana pops are frozen & the chocolate sets, wrap them individually in wax paper for storage & put them in an air-tight freezer safe storage bag or container.)

My second favorite thing about these super delicious Dark Chocolate Frozen Banana Pops? You get a dessert-level sweet treat without all of the fat and processed sugar.
