Chocolate Banana Pops or Bites

Serves 12

 

6 bananas (ripe, without soft spots)

1 cup to 1 1/2 cups gluten and dairy free chocolate chips (start melting 1 cup worth, then melt the other 1/2 cup if needed)

optional: chopped nuts or gluten free sprinkles

 

If making Banana Pops:  Line a baking pan with waxed paper or plastic wrap.  Peel the bananas and cut in half crosswise.  Put a popsicle stick into the cut end of each banana half.  Lay bananas on the waxed paper or plastic wrap.  Put bananas into the freezer for about 2 hours until very firm and frozen.  

 

In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips.  When chocolate is melted, remove bananas from freezer.  Working quickly, dip each banana by holding the popsicle stick and twirling in the chocolate.  The chocolate should harden on the frozen banana very quickly.  Roll in chopped nuts or sprinkles before chocolate hardens, if desired.  Wrap each banana half in plastic, then put wrapped banana pops in a container with a lid.  Store in the freezer.

 

If making Banana Bites:  Line a baking pan with waxed paper or plastic wrap.  Peel the bananas and cut in one inch chunks.  Lay bananas on the waxed paper or plastic wrap.  Put bananas into the freezer for about 2 hours until very firm and frozen.  

 

In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips.  When chocolate is melted, remove bananas from freezer.  Working quickly, dip each banana chunk by placing the banana piece on the tines of a fork and lowering it into the chocolate.  The chocolate should harden on the frozen banana very quickly.  Roll in chopped nuts or sprinkles before chocolate hardens, if desired.  Put the chocolate covered banana bite onto the waxed paper or plastic wrap while dipping the rest of the banana chunks.  Put the banana bites into a plastic container with a lid, putting waxed paper or plastic wrap between the layers of the banana bites.  Store in the freezer.
