Banana Pops

It wouldn't be summer without these yummy classic cool-off treats.

What you'll need

  • ripe bananas
    semisweet chocolate chips
    canola oil
    shredded coconut
    chopped nuts

How to make it

  1. To make a bunch of these tempting treats, cut 4 firm, ripe bananas in half and insert a Popsicle stick halfway into each one.
  2. Set the pops on a waxed-paper-lined baking sheet and place them in the freezer for 1 hour.
  3. In a small saucepan over very low heat, stir together 1 1/2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons of canola oil until melted.
  4. Place toppings, such as shredded coconut, chopped nuts, and sprinkles, in individual bowls.
  5. One at a time, remove the pops from the freezer and, holding them over the saucepan, spoon the chocolate over them. Roll each chocolate-covered banana in a topping, then return it to the freezer to harden for 1 to 2 hours before serving. Serves 8.
