World's BEST Frozen Banana!


I thought I'd leave you with one last treat before I sign off for a little bit!  ;)

I have always had an affinity for frozen bananas...I grew up in Newport Beach where they make the most amazing frozen bananas down on Balboa Island at "Dad's".  I love the option with all the fixings on top and decided it would be the perfect summer treat to recreate!

They're actually quite easy to make too, which is a plus!  First, you need to prepare the bananas.  I cut mine in half and skewered with a straw {a popsicle stick would work too}.  Then set out your toppings.  Dad's uses crushed peanuts, almonds, oreos, sprinkles and toffee {I did not use the toffee}.  Combine on a dinner plate so it's set to cover the bananas.  Melt 4 oz chocolate chips in the microwave and then add 2 teaspoons vegetable oil and stir.  This gives the chocolate a nice consistency for dipping the banana.  Carefully dip one banana at a time and cover in the topping.  Repeat for each banana.  Allow to freeze for about 4-5 hours.


This is honestly one of my FAVORITE desserts and just perfect for the summer.  

Hope you enjoy!!  Bon Appetit!
