Frozen Banana Bites

Frozen bananas are a fun treat. Cutting up the banana into little pops is an alternative that the kids can eat on the go, and with less mess.

Ingredients:

1 banana
6 ounces chocolate chips
2/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

drinking straws

In a small saucepan over medium heat – combine the chocolate chips, heavy cream and the vanilla. When it starts to melt, work fast and whisk it together. Keep whisking while the chocolate keeps melting and magically in a matter of seconds you will have a beautiful silky ganache. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.

Cut the banana into slices and pop them onto the ends of the straws like little lollipops. Dip the pops into the ganache, then cereal.

Place them on a parchment lined plate and put them in the freezer to set. Enjoy!
