Chocolate Banana Pops

It's been hot here in the Deep South. Really hot. So cool treats from the freezer are nice to keep on hand. And here's a recipe you'll love because it's so simple and yummy.

Here's what you need:

4 firm bananas, sliced in half width-wise
8 popsicle stickes
6 oz chocolate chips (that's half a bag)
1/3 cup peanut butter

Insert the popsicle sticks into the bananas. Melt the chocolate chips and stir in the peanut butter until smooth. Using a spoon, spread the chocolate mixture over the bananas and roll the sprinkles. Place on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet.

Freeze for about an hour, then remove from the tray and place in a freezer bag. Now you can grab them and go! These don't last very long around here.

You can use chopped peanuts or crushed granola instead of sprinkles. Whatever suits your fancy.


  1. If they only sold chocolate chips up here lol! Those look delicious! :) I'm hoping your heat wave breaks too, my folks are in Georgia and it's awful hot.

  2. I'm so excited! Why didn't I think of that?! We'll definitely be making these :)

  3. Update: I made these this evening and my girls LOVED them! Thanks again for posting :)
