Kimber's Korner: Chocolate Dipped Bananas

I LOOOOOOVE bananas! I have been eating them almost my entire life. First as a puree, next in bite-size pieces, then peeling and eating it like a big girl and now....dipped in chocolate and covered with goodness! This recipe is tons of fun to make. It can get a little messy, but that's part of what makes it so exciting to make! Check out how Mom and I made our Chocolate Dipped Bananas. Oh, and thank you to Miss Rachael for coming up with the original recipe that inspired me. You are great!




CHOCOLATE DIPPED BANANAS
Makes 10 servings

INGREDIENTS:

5 bananas

10 Popsicle sticks

1 (7-ounce) tub of BAKER'S dipping chocolate

Toppings:

raisins
granola
craisons
cereal (crumbled)
Reduced-Fat Nilla wafers (crumbled)



DIRECTIONS:

Peel and cut the bananas in half crosswise, so that you have 10 pieces. Place peeled bananas on sticks. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper. Place bananas on the cookie sheet in the freezer, keep them in there as long as possible, at least 10 minutes. Heat chocolate bits until melted completely. Dip the chilled bananas in chocolate and roll with your favorite topping. Chill or freeze until ready to serve.

RESULTS:

These turned out so great! As you can see, they were very easy to make and a great recipe to do with the kids. You can be as creative as you want with the toppings, just try to keep it on the healthy side; so avoid using candy or full-fat cookies. This is a great way to sneak in extra fruit, whole grains or healthy nutrients from nuts. Want to cut down on the serving size? Slice the bananas into thirds like we did!

ENJOY!
