Variations For Chocolate Dipped Bananas

Add toppings- Such as colorful sprinkles, nuts, toffee, crushed cookies, shredded coconut, crushed graham crackers, or candies. Make sure every topping you use is roughly chopped, diced or shredded.

Use colored candy melts or colored white chocolate– This will allow you to match themes for parties. Please note that white chocolate can only be colored with oil-based food coloring.

Add nut butter– Spread peanut butter or any other nut butter of your choice on top of the banana slice and then dip it in melted chocolate.

Salted chocolate dipped bananas– Before the chocolate sets, sprinkle the top with coarse sea salt.

Half dip the bananas– For less chocolate and more banana flavor, only dip each slice halfway.

Make it party-friendly and mess-free– Do this by sticking or toothpick into each slice before freezing.

Tips And Techniques For Chocolate Frozen Bananas

Melted chocolate should not be too warm– This is very important because if it’s too hot, the fruit will start breaking down and getting too soft during dipping.

Don’t use very ripe bananas- They are too soft and it’s hard to dip them and get them coated properly.

Dip slices one at a time– This prevents the bowl of chocolate from getting too crowded. It’s also just plain easy to dip one at a time and allows each slice to be evenly coated.

What kind of chocolate should I use? I like to use semisweet or dark chocolate chips. You can choose whatever you prefer.

How do I melt the chocolate chips? You can use a double boiler or a microwave. If using a microwave, heat at 15-20 second intervals, making sure to stir in between because this prevents chocolate from burning.

Line tray with wax paper or parchment paper- Because this makes up clean-up easy and also allows easy removal of slices.

Storage

Freezer– These must be kept in the freezer. Store in a sealed container for up to 1 month. They cannot be stored in the fridge or at room temperature.
