Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas



'Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas'
Source: Adapted from Baked Bree

Ingredients

Bananas
1 bag milk or semisweet chocolate chips
3 Tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
Wood corn dog sticks
Sprinkles

Directions

1. Peel desired number of bananas and insert stick about 1 inch above the very bottom of the banana, so the stick can go straight into as much of the banana as possible. (It's ok if they start to break a bit...freezing them will stop further breakage).

2. Put the bananas on a plate and set in the freezer, letting them freeze completely...at least 2 hours.

3. Once completely frozen, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave according to package directions. Add the vegetable oil and mix completely (this helps thin the chocolate making it easier to work with).

4. Using a spoon, cover the bananas in chocolate. Work quickly as the cold banana will start to harden the warm chocolate almost immediately! Cover with sprinkles and put them back in the freezer to set completely. 

***Since we ate ours immediately, I placed mine in the fridge for about 20 minutes after covering them with chocolate. The chocolate still hardens, but the banana starts to thaw a bit. I didn't want Jesse biting into a rock hard banana***

  1. Awesome! I love chocolate covered bananas - saving this one!

    Relatively new reader here, but we have a common theme - Navy Wife. My husband is away for this storm, too. Last year's storm didn't hit us too hard, so I'm hoping this one does the same... Good luck weathering it out at your place!
