Chocolate Dipped Banana Pops / Jennifer Chong for BHG

Early this month the weather in SoCal was really hot – since I moved here from Atlanta, I’ve grown incredible comfortable to 70º year round perfect weather but there are those occasional weeks where it’s just really hot like an oven. I know I shouldn’t complain about the weather, but when you don’t have AC and it’s 90º outside – it makes for a painfully hot apartment.

Inspired by these frozen chocolate banana bites and these banana crunch pops, I decided to beat the heat with these chocolate dipped banana pops. Great treat to cool you down, not to mention a tad bit healthier than the ice cream you’re probably reaching for!

Ingredients
2 Bananas
1/2 cup of dark chocolate pieces
1/2 cup of crushed almonds
1/2 cup of toasted coconut
3-6 sticks

Recipe
1. Peel bananas. Slice bananas into 1 1/2 inch-thick pieces and insert sticks.
2. Line baking sheet with waxed paper. Arrange banana pieces on baking sheet and freeze bananas for at least 30 mins.
3. Once bananas are frozen or firm and cool to the touch. In a heavy small saucepan, melt chocolate over low heat (you can also microwave it too, but slowly and watch your chocolate!). Place melted chocolate in small bowl for dipping.
4. Dip the frozen bananas into the warm chocolate and quickly top with crushed almonds or toasted coconut. The chocolate should firm up pretty quickly.
5. Place the dipped bananas on a waxed baking sheet when complete.
6. You can enjoy these right away or store them in the fridge for up to three days. If they are completely frozen I’d recommend leaving them in the fridge for 10-15 mins before serving.
