Frozen Candy Banana Pops – perfect summer treat

 

 

 

This tasty treat combines naturally-sweet bananas and candy (we love using Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups) for a fun, kid-friendly dessert. If you don’t have popsicle sticks, this treat can also be made into bite-sized pieces. For extra peanut butter flavor, dip the banana first in peanut butter, then in chocolate.

Meanwhile, heat the chocolate in a double boiler or medium heatproof bowl set over (but not in) a saucepan of simmering water, stirring often, until melted and smooth.

Chop the frozen peanut butter cups. Line a plate with parchment.

Coat the frozen bananas in the melted chocolate. Sprinkle with the chopped peanut butter cups. Freeze on the prepared plate until firm, 4 to 5 minutes.
