The only difficult thing about making these Frozen Banana Chocolate Pops is waiting for them to set. Arg, the patience of waiting just kills me sometimes…
- 3 bananas, ripe
- 2 Tbsp. dark chocolate Nutchello
- 2 tsp. cocoa powder
- ½ c. peanuts, crushed
- 4 popsicle sticks
- 8 homemade googly eyes
- 4 dark chocolate discs, cut in half
- 4 mini gluten free cookies
- 4 jelly beans
- Throw together everything but the peanuts into a high speed blend until completely smooth.
- Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for 1-2 hours until semi-firm.
- Place sticks into the pops. They should be able to stand on their own. Freeze several hours until completely firm.
- Place the mold under warm for easy removal.
- Dip into the crushed peanuts.
- Using melted chocolate as the glue, add the googly eyes, chocolate discs, cookie and jelly bean for the completion of the face.
- Freeze until firm again or eat right away.
Either way you make them (dog-shaped or not), these pops are the perfect, less-of-the-sugar treats for your kids. So I dare you to make them and not love them.
