Ready In:
4 bananas


  • 2 ripe but firm bananas
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate, chopped or 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 12 1/2 cup walnuts (optional) or 1/2 cup candy sprinkles (optional)


  • Line a baking sheet with nonstick foil or parchment paper.
  • Cut the bananas in half and insert a Popsicle stick into each half. Place them on the baking sheet and freeze for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt the chocolate with the oil in a Pyrex measuring cup in the microwave (check it every 30 seconds) or in a half-full pan of simmering water (about 2 minutes). Stir until smooth.
  • Roll each banana half in the chocolate, then quickly sprinkle with your topping (if using).
  • Freeze until the chocolate sets, 30 minutes. Serve or freeze in an airtight container for up to a week.

  1. Super delicious! My kids loved making these, and they were so easy. Thanks for the great recipe, we'll be making these again!
  2. Yummy- these were good. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't use any of the optional items. I only had four ounces of milk chocolate chips so used them and only one tablespoon of canola oil. We enjoyed these but next time I would follow another reviewers advice and let the bananas freeze overnight so they also would be frozen. Great yummy treat that is easy to make.
  3. Yum, rolled mine in chopped dry roasted peanuts.
  4. YUM! Simple and easy to do with kids. We didn't use anything to roll the bananas in-- just the chocolate was what they wanted. We did have to reheat the chocolate part of the way through, to keep it pourable for all the bananas we were making (we doubled it). Thanks, Indigo!
  5. I love this! Best to freeze overnight so banana inside is frozen and the chocolate sticks to it better.


For now, I am a student in Boston, not quite trying to make ends meet, but certainly trying my luck in the kitchen now that I have one all to my very own! I loooooove spicy food and have nostalgia for many foods that I can't quite put my finger on or track down! I think being a chef is my second calling (writing being my first!)
