Frozen Chocolate Covered Banana Slices Topped with Coconut
Need I say more? The title alone makes me drool. These fun and tasty treats were fun to make this afternoon with my kids. It was 100 degrees outside so we stayed inside and made these delicious bite sized desserts along with some popsicles. These treats were quick and easy – the hardest part was waiting for them to freeze. These banana slices are to be eaten straight from the freezer because the banana gets mushy if thawed. Needless to say, these were a HUGE hit with both of my kids.
Stir chocolate and oil in heavy small saucepan over low heat just until smooth. Let stand 10 minutes to cool.
Place the coconut in a separate shallow dish. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a fork, dip 1 banana slice in chocolate, coating completely. Shake off excess chocolate. Place on the lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining bananas. Sprinkle the top of each banana slice with shredded coconut.
Place into the freezer and freeze until firm, about 3-4 hours, then serve immediately. Store the remaining banana slices in a freezer bag or sealed container. Enjoy.
