Chocolate Covered Bananas are Fun to Make and Delicious to Eat

My children love Chocolate Covered Bananas! They always make a great after school treat, weekend treat, party food, or even as an appetizer at a dinner party.

Since bananas are so easy to dip in chocolate, making them is really not very time consuming and certainly makes a perfect afternoon treat.

Some people prefer Chocolate Covered Bananas frozen on a stick, like the Popsicle style they serve at the fair. We also enjoy our Chocolate Covered Bananas in bite-size pieces.

In this article, I will show you the easiest and fastest way to make Chocolate Covered Bananas in bite size pieces and on a stick.




My Cooking Motto

FAST & EASY

Supplies and Ingredients

  • Bananas
  • Chocolate for Melting ~ I prefer Saco Dolci Frutta
  • Nuts (optional)
  • Wax
  • PaperPopsicle sticks ~ If you want the Popsicle style treat

Easy Directions for Bite Size Pieces

Step 1: Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper ~ The cookie sheet will make it easier to move your Chocolate Covered Bananas.

Step2: Melt Your Chocolate ~ If you use Saco Dolci Frutta, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave in their package container. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 2 minutes on medium and stir the chocolate until it is completely melted. Other chocolates will need to be melted in a double boiler or a microwavable dish.

Step 3: Cut your Banana to the desired size ~ bite size pieces are the easiest to dip in the chocolate.

Step 4: Dip or Immerse the Banana pieces in the chocolate

Step 5: Place Chocolate Covered Banana Piece on Prepared Wax Paper to Cool

Step 6: Sprinkle with Nuts before Chocolate Cools, if desired

Step 7: When you have covered all of the pieces in chocolate, eat or freeze.

Best if not refrigerated

      I don't like bananas but love the taste of them in banana bread. I think it is a texture thing with me. But you do make them look yummy!!

      Great idea to cut the banana into slices. I think I might try chopped peanuts or cashews. You are making me hungry!
