If you’re looking for something to do with all the over-ripe bananas lying around, try this simple-to-make frozen treat: Banana Pops.

1. Cut peeled bananas in half crosswise.  Insert a Popsicle stick into one end and lay on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet.

2. Dump chocolate morsels in a large bowl and melt in the microwave for one minute. Stir.  If they are still chunky, melt for 30 second intervals until creamy. If the mixture feels thick, try adding a tsp. of vegetable oil to thin it.

3. Spread chocolate over bananas until covered. Place in the freezer until chocolate is set.  You can also sprinkle chopped nuts, rainbow sprinkles or coconut over the chocolate before you freeze the pops.

4. Once they are frozen, they can be stored in a zipper bag in the freezer. A delicious chocolate treat and a serving of fruit. What’s not to love?
