This snack takes delicious chocolate and pairs it with yummy banana. It's a treat that can be make an appearance at a birthday party or a family barbecue. And it's not just for kids!

{Makes 6 small bananas}

You'll need:

  • 3 large bananas
  • 1 large bar of chocolate
  • A little adult help

Equipment:

  • A microwave-safe bowl (An oval-shape works best)
  • Craft sticks or skinny wooden forks
  • A spoon
  • A gallon size zipper bag
  • Wax paper
  1. Peel the bananas and sliced them roughly in half.
  2. Starting with the cut end of the banana, push a craft stick AKA (also known as) a Popsicle stick into one of the half banana pieces. You want to try to get the stick to move right up through the center of the banana so the banana will stay on the stick. Repeat with the other half bananas.
  3. When you have all your bananas on sticks, place them gently in the plastic bag and put them in the freezer for about 2 hours.
  4. When the bananas are frozen through and through, you can make the chocolate coating. Take the bar of chocolate and break it into pieces. Put the pieces into the microwavable dish.
  5. Put the chocolate in the microwave for about 30 seconds. 
  6. Watch it closely because chocolate melts from the inside out in the microwave. So you won't see the edges melting like you do with butter. Chocolate can keep its shape, and keep its shape, and then suddenly it starts to burn. If you need to heat the chocolate some more, do it 10 seconds at a time.
  7. When the chocolate is melted stir it around with a spoon to get all the lumps out.
  8. Lay out a sheet of waxed paper.
  9. Roll your frozen bananas in the chocolate. The coldness of the banana will make the chocolate harden into a shell. When you have coated the whole banana lay it on the waxed paper. Repeat.
  10. When all your bananas are coated, fold the wax paper over them and put them back in the freezer for another hour.
