    Servings and Ingredients

    Ingredients
    Serves 12
    QuantityIngredientAdd
    3medium firm ripe bananas
    12popsicle sticks
    Assorted coatings such as toffee bits, chopped nuts, crumbled cookies, toasted shredded coconut or candy sprinkles
    1(12 oz) bag Hy-Vee semisweet chocolate chips
    1 tbsp.Hy-Vee canola oil

    Directions

    1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside.
    2. Peel bananas; cut each banana into 4 chunks. Insert popsicle sticks into each banana chunk. Spread out onto prepared baking sheet. Freeze, uncovered, for about 15 to 30 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile, place each desired topping in a separate shallow dish. In a double boiler, combine chocolate chips and oil. Stir over medium-low heat just until smooth. (Or, melt chocolate and oil in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water.)
    4. Remove bananas from freezer. Dip one at a time into melted chocolate, making sure banana is completely covered with chocolate. If desired, roll or sprinkle chocolate-coated banana in desired coating. Place banana back on baking sheet and freeze for 1 hour more.
    5. When completely frozen, store bananas in a freezer-proof container for up to 1 week. Place bananas in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to soften, before serving.
