Expert Tips

You can use other toppings of your choosing.

Frozen bananas dipped in chocolate delight both children and adults. It’s also an easy treat to prepare for a hot summer’s day. Mexican chocolate, used for dipping the bananas, contains cinnamon, sugar and ground almonds. This light toque of cinnamon combines with the bananas to create a flavor that hooks anyone who tries this dessert.

Directions

  • 1 First peel and cut the bananas in half at the middle of each one to form 8 small ‘pops.’ Then insert one popsicle stick into the base of each banana half. Separately, line a tray or dish with wax paper and place the pops on top. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile prepare the banana toppings; place the chopped nuts, flavored sprinkles and or shaved coconut in separate dishes, ready for dipping. Then in a medium-sized bowl, combine the chopped Mexican chocolate, chocolate chips and cream. Place the bowl over over a bain marie or water bath on low heat until the ingredients are completely melted. Remove from heat and mix well.
  • 3 Next, remove the bananas from the freezer and coat each one completely in melted chocolate.
  • 4 Then dip in your favorite toppings before returning each pop to the wax paper. Freeze for at least two hours before serving. ¡Disfrute!
