Chef's Note

Sweet and natural! Experiment with your own toppings like crushed oreos, butterscotch, white chocolate, caramel, and cookie dough.


Making the Frozen Banana

You will need:

  • 4 bananas
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 popsicle sticks
  • Toppings as desired (see ideas below)


  1. Peel the bananas. Cut 1 inch off the bottom and insert a popsicle stick for each banana.
  2. Place the bananas on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper and freeze (about 1 hour).
  3. When an hour has almost passed, combine oil and chips in a large microwave-safe bowl.
  4. Microwave the bowl on full power in 20 second intervals, stirring between each interval.
  5. Be careful not to overcook! Stop heating when most chips have melted and stir well to produce a smooth sauce.
  6. Dip each banana in the chocolate sauce and turn to coat.
  7. Sprinkle on or roll banana in desired toppings.
  8. Transfer decorated bananas to the baking sheet and refreeze (about 30 minutes).
  9. Once frozen, serve immediately or keep frozen in an airtight container for later.
