Ingredients:

Bananas

Chocolate

Popsicle Sticks

Toppings (optional) – nuts, sprinkles, etc.

Directions:

Start by cutting the bottom of the banana off so it is flat and place the popsicle halfway through the banana. Freeze for 1 hour.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave or a double boiler.

Then, dip the banana into the chocolate until completely covered and rest it on wax paper. Add toppings now. Freeze overnight or until completely frozen.
