chocolate dipped bananas...

8 bananas (not too ripe)
1 1/2 pkg chocolate flavored almond bark
16 popsicle sticks
sprinkles, decorating sugar, chopped nuts, etc.
small piece of styrofoam

Peel bananas & cut in half. Place on a paper lined baking sheet & freeze for about 30 min. Remove from freezer and carefully insert popsicle sticks. Return to freezer. Melt almond bark according to pkg directions. Dip frozen bananas & quickly top with nuts, sprinkles, etc. Stick popsicle stick end in styrofoam and return to freezer until ready to eat.

My 10 year old twins celebrated their Birthday today with an ice cream bar. We decided to turn traditional banana splits into something a little more special with chocolate dipped bananas. YUM! We had fun making them & we had fun eating them. They went fast! These make a great Summer treat, as well.

There's a place in Newport Beach, CA that is supposed to be the home of the original frozen banana. They day I went, they were closed! I just love frozen bananas, so thanks for the yummy reminder.

I so need to live at your house...I could just quietly sit on the couch all day long and consume your food.
