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.
2 Hours 10 Mins
- 2 bananas, peeled and halved crosswise
- 4 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (21 grams each)
- 6 ounces chocolate, chopped
How to Make It
Insert a wooden stick into each banana half. Freeze the bananas and the peanut butter cups for 2 hours.
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.
