Coming up with treats for my Munchkin are always fun. But planning treats for parties is purely exciting. As I mentioned before my 3 year old is on a sprinkle kick. I am pretty sure if you put sprinkles on Brussel sprouts she would eat them, well maybe not. But, every dessert I make now has sprinkles, the Funfetti Sugar Cookie Dough Dip that we created recently was loaded with sprinkles.
I decided to make her sprinkle dreams come true with a little nod to healthy options. We actually made these same Chocolate Covered Banana Treats for her Elmo Birthday Party last year but cut them into smaller bites. Seriously when you have an entire food TENT no one wants big portions. They want to try a little of everything.
This time though I dipped these in the new Homemade Magic Shell. Let me tell you... They are insane. We chose 2 flavors; milk chocolate and white chocolate. We also chose 2 toppings; sprinkles and chopped peanuts. My munchkin loves to be next to me in the kitchen. She has her own stool that she pulls out and she stands right next to me. Often, she wears her apron and chef's hat or will bring her own measuring spoons and rolling pin.
What a fun time she and I had dipping and decorating these bananas for our little summer party. These Frozen Chocolate Covered Banana Treats are the perfect dessert for the kids and the adults devoured them too!

Frozen Chocolate Covered Banana Treats
makes 12 Chocolate Covered Banana Treats
12 popsicle sticks
1 recipe Homemade Magic Shell (we made half milk chocolate, half white chocolate)
toppings of choice (sprinkled, chopped nuts, coconut, mini M&M's, mini chocolate chips, crushed candies)
Slice bananas in half. Slide popsicle stick inside banana about 1/2 way, being careful not to puncture the side of the banana. If you do, just slide it out a little and try again. (Once its dipped, you will never notice). Place on a cookie sheet and freeze for 4 hours or longer.
Pour magic shell into a tall thin glass, such as a mason jar. Prepare toppings, pour each topping onto a shallow plate larger than your banana. Remove frozen bananas from freezer.
One at a time, dip banana in magic shell and immediately toss in desired topping. Transfer back to cookie sheet and repeat until all bananas are decorated.
Return treats to the freezer until you are ready to serve.
Serve and enjoy!
