3Whole BananasPeeled and sliced in half (you'll have 6 banana pops)
Optional Toppings: Sprinkles, Crushed Peanuts, Crushed Cookies, etc.
Peel and slice bananas in half then skewer each half with either a popsicle stick or lollipop stick. (I don't recommend using the wooden skewers I used, since they have a sharp tip.)
Place skewered bananas on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and freeze for at least 2 hours.
Fill a tall pint mason jar or similar size jar with 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Place in microwave for 30 seconds, stir and warm again for 15 seconds or until chocolate is melted. To keep chocolate warm while dipping, place jar in a small bowl of hot water.
If adding toppings, have them all ready in bowls and setup up a dipping station. The chocolate hardens in about 10 seconds so you have to work quickly.
Tilt jar of melted chocolate slightly and dip banana and remove quickly while allow some of the excess to come off. For plain dipped bananas allow it to harden for 10 seconds then place on parchment paper.
For toppings, quickly sprinkle them on all sides before chocolate hardens. Then place on parchment paper and finish the remaining bananas.
Once all the bananas are dipped, they can be enjoyed immediately or left out for about 20 minutes. To save, wrap each banana in plastic wrap tightly and place back in the freezer up to a month. Remove from freezer 10 minutes to thaw before eating.
The chocolate can also be melted on the stove using a double broiler method. Just be sure the melted chocolate doesn't touch water or it will seize. Chocolate can burn, so don't over heat it.
