Banana popsicles – any way you want

It’s been 8 days of traveling – 8 days, 4 cities, 7 plane rides. I can’t begin to tell you how nice it feels to be home again knowing I won’t be traveling for another week again. I’m back in my happy spot, making treats and planning new recipes.

For some strange reason (though I’ve been traveling in East Europe in December which means it’s cold cold cold!) I have been craving ice-cream, so tonight it’s time to make some iced banana popsicles. I’m actually just enjoying one while I’m writing this post, even sharing some of it (only the banana piece of course!) with our little puppy Macchiato.

Iced banana popsicles

banana popsicles

Ingredients:
– 2-3 bananas
– 1/2 bar good dark chocolate (I used Green & Black’s dark chocolate that I brought from London)
– 2 handful of finely chopped nuts of your choice (I used peanuts and almonds)
– any other sweet decoration you wish to use!
– wooden popsicles sticks
– also optional: 1 tbsp peanut butter

Method:
1. Cut the bananas in half and put a popsicle stick through each
2. Put banana halfes in the freezer for about 1/2 hour
3. Melt the chocolate in a hot water bath, add a spoon of peanut butter if you wish (personally I never say no to peanut butter!)
4. Dunk the banana halves in the melted chocolate and swirl around a bit. As the banana is half frozen, the chocolate will dry really quickly. So try to be fast if you can.
5. Sprinkle chopped nuts or other decoration over and then put on parchment paper to dry.
6. Let dry for about 1/2 hour, then put into the freezer and they’re ready to eat after about 1 hour!
