Wow! These are so good. Perfect cold treat for a hot summer day and super easy for kids to make.

What you will need:
5 firm bananas peeled

Cut in half. Push a popsicle stick, straw or skewer into each end. Place in ziplock bag and freeze for several hours. You want them hard and cold. Bananas with spots on the peel are too ripe to hold well on a stick and taste mushy.

2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup chocolate chips semi, dark or milk they all work

Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil together in a small glass bowl, mug or cup. Microwave at half power for 30 seconds. Stir for a bit until chocolate melts and then take frozen bananas out of freezer and dip. Hold each banana upright for a few seconds until it sets and then place on wax paper. You can roll them in nuts or sprinkles while still wet if you like. Eat within a few minutes or put back in freezer.
Coconut oil is super popular and most grocery stores sell it. My mom bought the jar in the picture at HomeGoods. Don’t try to use veg oil. Coconut oil is a liquid when warm but a solid at
room temp. This helps make the chocolate go hard as soon as it touches the cold bananas.

    Love the picture, I just wish I could reach out and take a bite! Gonna have to try this one, I love the sprinkles idea, I know the kids will love it and it will be a great activity. Thanks for explaining the coconut oil, most people haven’t used it so it’s nice to understand that it is not interchangeable with regular vegetable oil.
