Sliced Bananas with chocolate on a stick a fun and healthy treat for all kids to enjoy on Halloween.
Adults: Cut the bananas in half lengthwise, then in half to make four quarters.
Together: Brush with lemon juice. Insert popsicle sticks into bananas and freeze 30 minutes on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
Kids: When the bananas are frozen, fill a coffee mug with chocolate.
Adults: Melt chocolate in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring until the chocolate is melted and soft. Microwave is best for teaching kids safety and healthy choices, easy choice snacks.
Together: Dip the bananas one at a time into the chocolate, scraping off the excess chocolate from the back of the banana, and place it on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
Kids: Quickly add the cinnamon candies or sprinkles (Hair) toppings on the rounded side before the chocolate hardens (you have to work quickly here).
Together: Place on wax paper and return to the freezer until frozen and ready to eat. Eat frozen and enjoy!!
Note: Adding a little oil to the chocolate helps thin the chocolate and therefore you will use less on each popsicle. You will need enough chocolate to dip the bananas, but you will be left with extra chocolate in the end (chocolate covered strawberries anyone?)
