Frozen Chocolate-Covered Bananas
• 4 large ripe bananas, peeled and cut into thirds crosswise
• 3/4 cup(s) semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips, melted (see Tips & Techniques)
• 1/4 cup(s) shredded coconut
1. Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Insert a Popsicle stick into the cut end of each banana third. Cover each piece of banana with melted chocolate using a rubber spatula and sprinkle with coconut. (Reheat chocolate, as needed, to keep it melted.) Place the bananas on the baking sheet and freeze until frozen, about 2 hours.
Tips & Techniques
To melt chocolate, microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted. Or place chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.
