A summer treat for those warm days...or just for fun!

We made these a few weeks ago when we were having consecutive sunny days here (been cloudy or raining for a while now).  They are quick easy and so delicious.

Chocolate Dipped Frozen Bananas

Bananas
Dark chocolate of choice for dipping
a little coconut oil
toothpicks
Nuts or shredded coconut for rolling them in

This really isn't a recipe but more a suggestion.  Place a small amount of chocolate chips or chocolate bar broken into chunks along with some coconut oil in a small bowl and microwave for about 30-45 seconds depending on your microwave.  I used about 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips and 1/2 TBSP of coconut oil, you can just eyeball it.  Stir your chocolate mixture and if needed microwave for a bit longer, until it's all melted.  Peel and slice your bananas into chunks, place  toothpick in one end, dip in chocolate and roll in desired condiment.  Place on wax paper, or I use silicone mats, just something that it won't stick to and that you can peel off.  Place in the freezer and freeze for a couple of hours depending on how frozen you want them.  I left some in the freezer for a few days and then just let them warm on the counter for a bit before eating them.
