The Best Chocolate Covered Bananas!

I have a little bit of a fruit crush on Bananas. Bananas are super versatile, they are the perfect grab and go snack, they are always in season, heck you can even make pancakes with 2 eggs and a banana! But more technically speaking, because bananas are sweeter than other fruits, they add the sweet flavor with also keeping things healthy.

HELLO Chocolate Covered Banana Pops! These babies are loaded with potassium and are an instant crowd-pleaser, not to mention they are really really easy and fun to make (as long as you are cool with having sprinkles EVERYWHERE). They even last for a few months in the freezer, which makes them the perfect option for a make-ahead snack!

Ingredients in Chocolate Covered Bananas:

  • Bananas – Ideally use firm and ripe bananas. Peel them and then chop them in half.
  • Chocolate – You’ll melt it with the coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl or in a double boiler on the stove top. Feel free to use dairy-free chocolate if necessary.
  • Coconut Oil – This helps to melted chocolate get that hard coating.
  • Toppings – See ideas below!

How to Make Chocolate Covered Banana Pops

STEP 1: FREEZE BANANAS

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut bananas in half and insert a popsicle stick into each half. Place bananas on baking sheet and freeze for 15 minutes.

STEP 2: MELT CHOCOLATE

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate with coconut oil in a microwave safe dish (checking every 30 seconds) or in a bowl over a half full pot of simmering water. Stir until smooth.

STEP 3: ADD TOPPINGS

Dip each banana pop in the chocolate (or drizzle), then sprinkle with your choice of topping. Place frozen Banana Pops for at least 30 minutes.

Toppings Suggestions:

The best thing about these guys is that there are no rules! Go bananas and get creative with your toppings, really sky’s the limit here. You could even be extra crazy and dip your bananas in Greek yogurt. Regardless, whatever you do, just make sure to freeze the bananas on the sticks first.

  • Nuts – whatever kind you prefer! Hazelnuts, pistachios, pecans, almonds etc..
  • Sprinkles – you can’t go wrong with a sprinkle of sprinkles!
  • Coconut – highly recommend toasting it too!
  • Granola – have some granola on hand? Try some on your chocolate covered banana!
