Frozen Chocolate Banana Pops
semi-sweet pieces, null, null
or grated coconut or coarsely ground nuts
Cut peeled bananas in halves crosswise.
Impale each half on wooden skewer and place in freezer 1 hour or until frozen.
(Coatings will run off if fruit is at room temperature. )
Melt chocolate in top of double boiler over hot, not boiling, water.
Add oil and stir until smooth. Keep warm over hot water while dipping.
Remove bananas from freezer a few at a time.
Dip and roll bananas in melted chocolate, making sure all banana surfaces are completely covered.
Gently shake or twirl banana before removing from pan to remove excess coating.
While chocolate is still soft, roll covered banana in colored sprinkles, coconut or nuts.
If coating becomes too hard to hold decorations, apply a little warm coating to pop.
When covering sets, place pops on squares of foil, wrap securely and store in freezer until ready to eat.
