Lucky they are super easy to make and taste delicious. Frozen banana really does have this ice creamy taste to it. The first time I made them was for my daughter’s second birthday party. It was a luau theme and these choc tipped bananas were very popular with the little ones. They were perfect for the hot day of the party.
I have been going through my favourite birthday party food recipes recently, collating them for an e-book I have been writing. It will be released next week (Tue), so if you like the idea of having an at home party for your kids and want to make it as easy as possible for yourself, be sure to check in next week.
Frozen banana ice creams
Obviously you only need to make as many bananas as you have kids and adults that will want to eat them. With bananas still being quite expensive here in Australia, these were quite a treat for us!
- 10 bananas
- 10 popsicle sticks
- 200 grams chocolate
1. Line trays with baking paper.
2. From one end of the banana, cut about 1.5cms to leave a flat base.
3. Insert the popsicle stick into the flat end of each banana. Sticks should go in about half way, so the kids can use the remainder as a handle. (I actually didn’t have popsicle sticks when I made them this time. We only had wooden skewers so I just used them.)
5. Before taking the bananas out of the freezer, break up chocolate in a microwave safe bowl.
6. Melt chocolate in the microwave on high for a minute. Stir. If chocolate is not fully melted continue to heat for 15 second bursts until chocolate is fully melted.
7. Remove bananas from freezer and dip into chocolate. Use a spoon to drizzle chocolate over if this is easier for you. The chocolate sets quite quickly with the help of the cold from the frozen banana.
9. Once choc has set, store the bananas in an airtight container in the freezer until served.
