Three Ingredient Recipe!

Bananas: Choose fresh and firm bananas to make the best chocolate dipped bananas. They can be cut in half or cut into thicker slices (like thirds) for smaller portions that are easier to handle.

Chocolate: Semi-sweet, dark, or white chocolate chips are all easy and fun to work with in this recipe! Add a drop or two of food coloring to white chocolate for pink, green, or blue chocolate dipped bananas!

Coconut Oil: Coconut oil blends the best with chocolate and helps it harden properly. Other oils carry too much flavor and will melt too quickly at room temperature.

Extras: Dip or roll chocolate bananas in chopped peanuts, candy bits, crushed cookies or cereal, coconut, sprinkles, or anything you can think of that’s colorful and tasty!

How To Make Chocolate Dipped Bananas

  1. Peel bananas and cut them in half. Insert a popsicle stick into the cut end of the banana (as per the recipe card below).
  2. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds.
  3. Add coconut oil and stir until fully combined.
  4. Dip banana pop in chocolate and roll or sprinkle on toppings.

Serving Suggestions

Chocolate covered bananas are great for parties! Create a Banana Bar with bananas ready on their sticks, melted chocolate, and a variety of toppings for guests to make their own sweet treat. Simply dip, roll, and enjoy!

This tasty treat is perfect for after school snacking or a cute dessert for last minute guests. Serve with some creamy lemonade and rainbow fruit kabobs.

Tips & Tricks

Enjoy chocolate dipped bananas fresh or freeze them for up to 4 hours. Frozen covered bananas make a sweet after school surprise and are perfect for last-minute playdates!

If you choose to freeze bananas, do so for about an hour after Step 2 to make them easier to handle.

Put the melted chocolate in a deep pitcher or bowl so it’s easier to dip the entire banana in one step instead of swirling it around in a shallow bowl or pan.

Use any leftover chocolate for dipping homemade churros into or use it up as a chocolate fondue for fresh fruit and small cubes of cake or cookies.
