Summer Snack

while reading one of my favorite blogs, A Cup of Jo, I came across this website which featured frozen chocolate covered bananas with a variety of toppings.

when i was younger, my mom use always make these for us, but instead she would put them on popsicle sticks.

i decided to make the bite size kind this afternoon!

the best part about these treats is they can use whatever toppings are in your kitchen!
i used coconut, graham crackers, and toffee.

they freeze within a few hours and are nice and cold for a super hot day

 it hit 102 today!

here's my version of the recipe

about 1 bag chocolate chips or 2-3 large chocolate bars
3-4 bananas

1) melt 1 bag (2 1/2 cups) chocolate chips or 2-3 large chocolate bars in a saucepan over simmering water.  do not microwave.  chocolate does burn!
2) slice bananas into 2 inch slices.
3) spoon melted chocolate onto banana.  
4) dip in toppings.  using a spoon, sprinkle topping over remaining areas.
5)  lay finished bananas on parchment paper.
6) freeze for 2-3 hours.
7)  bananas can stay in the freezer for about 2 weeks.  

yum yum yum!

p.s giveaway is open until Friday!
