These might be the easiest treat ever. They are semi-healthy, easy for kids to assemble, and they were pretty darn tasty as well. And everything tastes better on a stick.
What you will need:
3. Chocolate (1 bag chocolate chips)
4. Stuff for dipping
5. Wax paper
-Cut bananas in half. Place on wax paper on a plate or cookie sheet. Freeze for at least 4 hours.
-Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler on the stove. Add 1 tbsp shortening if you want to thin out the melted chocolate.
-Bring the bananas out of the freezer. Dip in chocolate, then roll or sprinkle with desired toppings.
-Put back in freezer until chocolate sets.
-Fight over the best bananas with the most sprinkles or nuts. Don't let up until you win.
We used chopped cashews, white and colored sprinkles for toppings.
Want to know the ones we fought over? The cashews. Delicious.
The frozen banana seriously tastes like ice cream, it's so smooth and creamy. Take them out of the freezer for a few minutes before eating, they really are rock hard coming out. These were a fun afternoon activity for us and a great semi-healthy treat. Until my kids starting throwing out other topping ideas...chopped oreos, mini M&M's, twix bars, peanut butter cups (okay, that last one was my idea). We might have to try some of these ideas in the future!
Thanks for stopping by today!!
