RECIPE: Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Almond-Covered Banana Popsicles

Yield: Approx. 8

Prep Time: 5

Cook Time: 10

Total Time: 15

Ingredients:

3 to 4 bananas, peeled and halved
1/2 cup melted dark chocolate chips
2 tablespoons peanut butter (I always use Adam's since it only contains peanuts!)
Chopped almonds or other nuts (Optional)
Popsicles sticks

Directions:

Peel and halve bananas.

Insert popsicle sticks into each banana half and place on a lined cookie sheet or plate.

Place chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in between each heating. Be careful not to overheat since this burns the chocolate. Set aside to cool for approx. 2 min.

Dip banana into the melted chocolate-peanut butter mixture and, using a spoon, pour the mixture over the banana to coat as you please.

If using chopped almonds, immediately sprinkle onto chocolate before it sets.

Chill chocolate-covered bananas for approx. 10 minutes.

As always, ENJOY! :)

    I love that you’ve combined chocolate and peanut butter here! I’m going to have to make a batch of these and have them on hand in the freezer. So much better for you than an iced cream treat!

    Hi Laura! I just found your blog through Foodgawker. I am in love with these banana popsicles. What a healthy treat… especially all those almonds! They must provide a great texture with the creamy frozen banana and rich dark chocolate. I love your blog! xo, Sally

    I’ve made these a lot. It’s so versatile and you can pretty much use any topping. My kids love sprinkles :-)

    We used to make these when I was a kid. We did them a bit opposite. Peeled, halved bananas, insert sticks and freeze. Then pull out of freezer and dip in melted chocolate and nuts. Being frozen, the chocolate sets up in a snap! I’m sure this way is terrific too! Thanks for posting – I needed the reminder for these!

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for
    about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    I did what Libby did 35 years ago, and I think I’ll do it again for Grandpa and me. They are healthy and delicious! I prefer them frozen, too.

    If you don’t have a Google alert system set up, an alternate way
    to find out if you have been pornjacked is to do an optimized
    search of your name or your article name. “I just learned that 20% of teens have sent nude or semi-nude pictures of themselves to friends – wow.

    Hi Laura!
    Your blog is awesome! You have so many good recipes that I am going to have to try. I really like how you have recipes that are holiday themed and you also added recipes that I would have never thought of, like oranges with pudding in them. This recipe looks so good and it is perfect for summer time! I will defiantly have to try it! Thank you so much for sharing all of these recipes and showing your love for chocolate.
