Makes: 16 pieces

Prep Time: 25 minutes plus freezing

Ingredients:

  • 16 small bamboo skewers or forks
  • 4 ripe but firm bananas, peeled and cut crosswise into 4 pieces each
  • 1 cup of toppings, such as NatureBox Cherry Ganache Granola (larger pieces chopped), coconut, sprinkles and/or chopped nuts
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Insert a skewer into the end of each banana. Place on a parchment-lined baking pan and place in freezer at least 4 hours or up to overnight.

2. Place each topping in its own shallow bowl or plate. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Pour some melted chocolate into a short glass or cup.

3. One at a time, dip frozen bananas into chocolate, turning to coat and letting excess chocolate drip off. Immediately sprinkle with toppings, lightly pressing to adhere if necessary. Refill glass with more melted chocolate as needed.

4. Place bananas back on baking pan, and re-freeze for at least 1 hour. Store in freezer for up to 4 days.
