This is a nice dessert after a casual meal. The kids love rolling the bananas in various toppings, and I like keeping the frosty treats in the freezer for healthy snacks.—Joy Cochran, Roy, Washington

"I, like the other reviewer, expected the chocolate to freeze somewhat on the banana, but after being in the freezer for several hours, it was still sticky feeling. Plus the topping oozed off of the bananas before it hardened, so the bananas aren't really coated. The only reason I gave it two stars is because the chocolate itself is pretty yummy with the honey and peanut butter mixed in. Maybe as an ice cream topping as the other reviewer said."

"I usually dont leave bad comments but this was REALLY disapointing. The ingredients will not freeze! If you are looking at this recipe and considering....let me suggest that you use good ole chocolate with a little fat to thin for dipping. This recipe is a waste of ingredients and would be better suited for an ice cream topping as it will not freeze!"
