Chocolate banana bitesMake these easy yummy chocolate covered banana pops to snack on!

Banana Dippers. I’m sure you’ve heard of them. Banana slices covered in dark chocolate packaged in individual packs and sold in the freezer aisle.

And while the idea is genius, why am I going to pay for something I can so easily make? All you need is two ingredients; Bananas and melted chocolate.

I used to make chocolate covered bananas and freeze them ever since I was a little girl. I had never sliced them before, and I certainly never put them on a popsicle stick.

There is just something about putting a food on a popsicle stick that makes it so much more fun! It is also easier for kids to enjoy without getting chocolate on their hands!

For these Banana Dippers you can choose your favorite chocolate and melt it down in either a double boiler or in your microwave. If your chocolate starts to get too hard just put back in the microwave for 15 second intervals, while stirring between, until melted again. Do make sure that your melted chocolate is in a deep bowl, or even a small measuring cup so that it makes dipping easier.

These are perfect to enjoy right out of the freezer on a hot day! If you want to add some more fruit you could make our Banana Split Bites!

      Tanja, I’d say they could hold up to 3 months in the freezer if you place them in a freezer safe bag or container after they are frozen! Ours never last that long though ;)

    We made these yesterday in preparation for our family labor day cookout. I couldn’t get the kids to stop asking for more! We dipped some in shredded coconut and some in chopped almonds as well. Very yummy!! The kids lost interest in the dipping process after about five pops but that was just fine with me ;) Less chocolate getting flung all over my kitchen.

      So glad you enjoyed them Amy! Great idea to put some shredded coconut and chopped almonds! My daughter looses interest after the first few too– but I agree with you– less to clean up! :)
