Is it just me, the 39 week pregnant lady, or is it HOT in here?! 🙂
It’s warming up and it’s time to cool off! Instead of eating something traditional, like popsicles, in the summer heat- try something else that’s cold, easy to make, and super-satisfying without having to succumb to the high-fat ice cream in the freezer… chocolate covered bananas!
- 5 bananas
- 8 popsicle sticks
- 3 cups good quality GF chocolate bar
- 3 tablespoons butter, cut up
- Chopped nuts
- Toasted coconut
- GF Cookie crumbles
- Colored sprinkles
- Mini chocolate candies or mini semi sweet chips, for chocoholics
Peel and cut the bananas in half crosswise, so that you have 8 pieces. Place peeled bananas on sticks. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper. Place bananas on the cookie sheet in the freezer, keep them in there as long as possible, at least 10 minutes. Heat chocolate bits with butter in a double boiler over low heat until the chocolate melts and butter is incorporated. Dip the chilled bananas in chocolate and roll with your favorite topping. Chill or freeze until ready to serve.
