I first saw this idea HERE on HowDoesShe.
Simple. Easy. Nutritious. Delicious. Fun.
Perfect for me. Perfect for the boys.
Our version of Monkey Tails!
(there are only a few photos - it's a bit tricky to man the camera and try to prevent any major banana/chocolate catastrophes)
First, slice bananas in half, insert popsicle stick, and freeze for at least an hour.
Remove from freezer, and dip in chocolate.
(We used Smucker's Magic Shell topping to maintain the ease factor of this treat, but you could also melt chocolate chips or almond bark.)
(There are so many options for toppings ~ crushed peanuts or graham crackers, toffee bits, etc ~ but I opted for sprinkles for (again) the ease factor, and I also thought the boys would be more thrilled with sprinkles than with peanuts.)
Put back in the freezer for at least another hour.
They are especially good after an afternoon playing in the pool.
