Frozen Chocolate-Covered Bananas
Preparation Time: 15 min/Cook Time: 2 1/4 hours
4 large ripe bananas, peeled and cut into thirds crosswise
3/4 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips, melted (see Tip)
1/4 cup shredded coconut
Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Insert a popsicle stick into the cut end of each banana half. Cover each piece of banana with melted chocolate using a rubber spatula and sprinkle with coconut. (Reheat chocolate, as needed, to keep it melted.) Place the bananas on the baking sheet and freeze until frozen, about 2 hours.
To melt chocolate, microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted. Or place chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.
