Banana Pops

Want a simple recipe for your kiddos?

Peel a banana, cut in half crosswise and stick a popsicle stick into one end. Freeze for an hour or so, or overnight:

Melt some chocolate chips. Don't worry about "tempering" the chocolate, or trying to use a fancy double boiler contraption. Instead use this sure-fire, easy peasy way to melt chocolate:

Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Blast on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Repeat. After a few rounds, they will start to melt. Once they are fully melted, dip the frozen bananas into the chocolate and let them cool in the freezer for about 10 minutes.


Now you are ready to enjoy!

Jersey Baby--Glad to know it isn't just me...been trying to leave you a comment on your *beautiful* floral pictures for a couple days now. Hope it gets fixed soon.

Mmmm...those look good. We're an impatient group here and usually just dip banana slices in chocolate syrup...I guess we'll have to "make it better."

Totally embracing the new feature...
