For a special summer treat, try these chocolate banana pops from Cross Country Cookery. The cookbook says, “Put chocolate in shallow dish for easy dipping. Kids love them!” I’ll bet a few adults will love these, too.
- 8 oz milk chocolate
- 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup nuts chopped
- 5 bananas halved crosswise
Insert wooden picks into fruit. Freeze about 1 hour.
In small saucepan over very low heat, melt chocolate, stirring constantly. Add oil. Remove from heat and transfer to shallow dish.
Roll bananas into chocolate mixture, then immediately in chopped nuts.
Place on baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Freeze firm. Wrap in moisture proof wrap and return to freezer.
