Easy Chocolate Covered Bananas!

  • Chocolate covered bananas are easy to make with only a few ingredients.

  • Make a dessert station and line up the kids to ‘dip and roll’ their own desserts to enjoy later!

Ingredients and Variations

Bananas – Fresh, ripe bananas that are still firm make the best frozen chocolate bananas. Smaller bananas are easier to manage for smaller hands. Save the softer, older bananas for banana bread or banana breakfast cookies.

Chocolate – Buy good quality chocolate or chocolate chips for the best flavor. Dark chocolate is a perfect pair with sweet bananas, but any chocolate will work. For faster prep, use chocolate candy melts that don’t require any mixing with oil, simply heat them in the microwave.

How to Make Chocolate-Covered Bananas

  1. Prep bananas and insert a popsicle stick or lollypop stick into the cut end of each banana.
  2. Melt chocolate in the microwave until smooth.
  3. Dip banana into chocolate until fully covered and let excess drip off.
  4. Gently roll in desired toppings and freeze until ready to serve.

Work Quickly!

Since the bananas are frozen, the chocolate hardens fast so you’ll want to work quickly to get the toppings to stick!

Toppings for Chocolate Bananas

Anything goes, but plain chocolate-covered bananas are delicious too! Remember to add the toppings before the chocolate is set so they will adhere properly.

Our favorites are:

  • Sprinkles, toasted coconut, chopped nuts
  • Cookie crumbs (Oreos or Nutter Butter)
  • Cereals like Fruity Pebbles or crushed Cap’n Crunch
  • Crushed-up candy bars like Skor or Heath bits

  1. These were such a delicious treat tonight! And really fun to make with my toddler, although he was too impatient to wait for his to freeze for an hour 5 stars

  2. Wow! these chocolate covered bananas look amazing! Tomorrow my birthday, and they will be part of the party (all day party; we’ll fit them in somewhere)! Still a kid at 73!

  3. I have about 12 bananas in our freezer already. Do you think I could take them and add the chocolate with them frozen already?
