Chocolate-covered banana pops

Video is loading...


  • 1–4 ripe bananas
  • 4oz dark chocolate chopped finely
  • popsicle sticks
  • toppings of choice (e.g., shredded coconut, finely chipped pistachios, finely chopped almonds and sprinkles)


Peel bananas and slice into 1½ inch pieces. Place popsicle sticks into the middle of the banana pieces and freeze on a wax paper lined sheet pan until hardened. This can take about 3–4 hours.

Once hard, take the bananas out of the freezer. Then place your finely chopped chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl and place in microwave in 30-second increments until chocolate is nice and smooth.

Take your banana pieces and one by one dip into the chocolate and then into your favorite topping and place back on wax paper lined sheet pan. When finished, place in freezer for about 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
