Chocolate Frozen Bananas

There are few things more satisfying and nostalgic than a chocolate-dipped frozen banana. I particularly love this rendition. Dark chocolate is combined with coconut oil, creating the smoothest, most luscious coating for the bananas. Adding shredded coconut or salty pistachios is extra special, elevating these treats from childhood treat to adult indulgence.
PREP, COOK, TOTAL TIME

Yields: 9 bananas
12 ounces dark chocolate, melted over a double boiler
3 tablespoons LouAna® 100% Pure Coconut Oil

Melt chocolate and coconut oil over a double boiler (or in the microwave, if you prefer).
Stir until smooth, glossy, and entirely melted.
Insert a popsicle stick into one end of each banana piece. Dip each banana into the warm melted chocolate. Shake off excess chocolate as best you can. Place dipped bananas on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Sprinkle generously with chopped pistachios, toasted coconut, or cocoa nibs.
Place in the freezer to harden and set.
When frozen through wrap individually or enjoy immediately.
