Frozen Banana Treats

“I love making these treats with my 9-year-old son, Sam. He’s in charge of cutting the bananas with a butter knife, pushing in the popsicle stick and rolling the chocolate-covered banana in the granola. It’s such fun!” —Aimee Lawrence, Wimberley, Texas

    I took a chocolate class years ago with the lady that wrote the chocolate section in "Joy of . . . ." Always melt chocolate in the microwave in a PLASTIC container made for reheating, NOT glass or ceramic, in 30-second increments. Chocolate chips hold their shape even when melted, so you must stir each time to make sure you don't burn them.

    I have a similar recipe. I cut the bananas in half and place the sticks in. I then freeze the bananas for several hours so they are rock hard. Then I melt chocolate chip either in the microwave or a double boiler. If the chocolate seems to thick you can add a small amount of shortening to thin it a little. I found that when you use water or milk to thin chocolate it seperates. Then dip the frozen bananas in the chocolate and then roll in what ever topping you want, peanuts, granola, ect. Then place them on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Put them back in the freezer for an hour or so. So good and cool for the summer. My kids love these!

    I am pretty competent in the kitchen, but this recipe was a mess for me to prepare. The chips burned the first time I tried to melt them. I made a new batch, and they wouldn't spread. I added a lttle milk, but the mixture wouldn't stay on the bananas. The sticks slid right off when I tried to put them in the freezer. Disaster! I hope they taste good at least . . .

    Fun to make with my 3 year old son. He loved "smashing" the granola! I think next time I will try with chopped nuts. Also had some strawberries on hand and they were AWESOME with the peanut butter chocolate coating!
