Step 1: You Will Need:
3 ripe bananas
2 cups of milk chocolate chips
Sprinkles, peanuts, shredded coconut, or anything else you think would be good on these!
A cup wide enough and deep enough to dip half a banana into
6 CLEAN Popsicle sticks
A butter knife
A baking pan covered with wax paper
A microwave safe bowl
A pair of tongs
Step 2: Prepare the "nanas"
Cut the bananas in half, (after peeling of course) and cut off the yucky brown things at the bottom of the bananas. Stick a clean Popsicle stick into the bottom of each banana half as far in as shown in photo.
Step 3: Melting the Chocolate
Put the chocolate chips into the microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds. Take bowl out of microwave and stir with spoon. Put bowl back into microwave for 15 seconds. Take the bowl out and stir again. Repeat this until all the chocolate chips are melted. Once melted, take bowl out of microwave and spoon melted chocolate into cup with spatula.
Step 4: Dipping the Bananas
Dip bananas into melted chocolate. Try to cover as much of the banana as you can. To take bananas out of chocolate, pull them out gently with tongs. Lay them onto the wax paper covered baking pan. Spoon extra chocolate onto any spots on the bananas you may have missed. Sprinkle toppings over the bananas as desired. Freeze until both the chocolate and the banana frozen solid.
Step 5: Finished!
Enjoy your tasty choco-nanas!
