I saw these adorable treats while scrolling around on the Reading Confetti Site. http://www.readingconfetti.com/2014/01/sledding-penguins-frozen-banana-snack.html
Not only will your kids have fun making them, they will gobble them up as well. To make FROZEN BANANA PENGUINS you will need the following:
bananas, Orange colored Reeces Pieces or orange M n M’s, chocolate morsels, ready made candy eyes (or almond slivers as I used in the photo).
1. Lay down a sheet of waxed paper over a cutting board. 2. Slice bananas in half as shown in the photo left. 3. Melt morsels in a microwave safe dish at 30 second intervals, stirring after each 30 sec. Once morsels are melted, use a craft stick or knife to spread the chocolate over the banana as shown in the photo above. 4. Use the chocolate “glue” to stick eyes, beak, and feet in place as shown.
5. When finished, slide the cookie sheet into the freezer to let the banana and chocolate harden. When hard, you can bag up the treats for whenever you want to serve them.
Here’s another way to enjoy your bananas: Cover them in melted chocolate and sprinkle with chopped almonds as shown right. You can also use other chopped nuts of your choosing. Freeze until chocolate is hard. I LOVE these treats…and so will your kids!
