Today happens to be a celebratory occasion. Sunday Supper is turning two! Isn’t it funny how time flies by sometimes? I’ve been a part of the Sunday Supper community for over a year (almost a year and a half), and it has been a wonderful experience. I remember the first time I was introduced to Sunday Supper – it was at a dinner Isabel was putting together at a local restaurant. She invited me to join up, and the very next week I participated in my first event. It has been such a pleasure to come together on Sundays to share recipes, connect with fellow food lovers, and get into the weekly theme as well! I always look forward to seeing what everyone will share each week.
The recipe I want to share today seems perfect for a birthday celebration. The bright colors and frozen goodness call out to you, don’t they? I am known to indulge in dessert each night before bed. Typically, it involves frozen yogurt, but I’ve been looking to some alternatives recently. These banana pops do the trick! Yes, there is chocolate involved, but you’re eating a banana, so that makes it better, right? Plus, they are a cinch to put together.
Frozen banana pops are not only great for adults, but they are very kid friendly as well. I made a batch for the first grade classes at my school, and almost every single child was excited about them. Definitely a win on all counts!
Have you tried frozen banana pops before? What did you think?
Wood popsicle sticks
White chocolate bark, or chocolate for melting
Rainbow sprinkles (or other sprinkles of choice)
1. Peel a banana, then slice into three equal pieces. Insert a popsicle stick into the end of one side of each banana piece.
2. Melt chocolate according to package instructions. When melted, stir in drops of food coloring until desired color is achieved. Hold a banana pop by the stick and gently twirl the banana over the chocolate until it is evenly coated. Place the chocolate covered pop on a sheet of wax paper and immediately sprinkle with jimmies (you could also fill a shallow dish with sprinkles and roll the pop in them).
3. Place finished banana pops in the freezer for at least one hour before serving. Enjoy!
