Banana Popsicles

June 21, 2013


9 small ripe bananas

200g semi-sweet chocolate (chopped)

1 tsp Crisco shortening

Toasted almond nibs / peanuts or sprinkles


Insert a bamboo skewer into the pieces of banana. Place on the prepared baking sheet and freeze for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate and Crisco shortening in a heatproof mug placed over a saucepan of simmering water.

Then remove the bananas from freezer and, taking one piece of banana at a time, dip in the melted chocolate, making sure the banana is completely covered with chocolate. If desired, roll or sprinkle the chocolate coated banana in chopped nuts or sprinkles.

Place them back on the baking sheet and freeze.

Once completely frozen, the bananas can be stored in a covered container, for about 1 week. To soften bananas, place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.
