A double boiler is a great way to melt the chocolate evenly without burning it. You can use a saucepan if you don’t have a double boiler. Place a small saucepan on top of a larger saucepan filled with simmering water. Make sure the water isn’t touching the bottom of the small saucepan. Put the chocolate chips and coconut oil in the small saucepan and frequently stir until the chocolate is melted. Pour the melted chocolate into a bowl and dip the bananas into it. Enjoy!

How to Make Chocolate Covered Bananas?

Tips for Chocolate Bananas that will ensure recipe success!

  1. Perhaps you are wondering if you can skip the coconut oil when making this recipe. You may find that the chocolate crumbles if you omit the oil. Adding oil to the chocolate can stabilize it to a greater extent. This will help soften the chocolate’s outer shell so that it’s more enjoyable to eat.
  2. Before dipping your bananas in chocolate, make sure they’re frozen.
  3. Be sure to dip the bananas quickly, so they don’t become too soft.
  4. Scrape any excess chocolate off the bananas after they’ve been dipped in chocolate.

Ingredient and Supplies

  1. Twelve (12) ounces Ghirardelli Premium Baking chocolate chips (we use Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips).
  2. One (1) tablespoon refined coconut oil (we use Nutiva Organic).
  3. Six (6) Dole bananas (slightly green for ease of use) peeled and halved
  4. Food-grade popsicle sticks or reusable Acrylic Ice Bar Sticks
  5. Consider adding your favorite nuts or granola, finely chopped as toppings.
  6. Choose sprinkles that match your child’s party theme.
  7. Top with Baker’s Angel Coconut flakes and slivered almonds if you like Almond Joy candy bars.
  8. Cookie tray.

 

Directions – Frozen Chocolate Covered Bananas

  • Twelve (12) ounces Ghirardelli Premium Baking chocolate chips
  • Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Set up shallow bowls with spoons and fill with desired toppings.
  • Peel and halve the bananas.
  • Place the banana halves on the parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  • Insert a popsicle stick into the flat end of the banana. Repeat until done.
  • Add the refined coconut oil to the chocolate chips in a small double boiler.
  • Turn chocolate frequently with a spatula to avoid scorching it.
  • Once the chocolate mixture melts, place it into a bowl best for dipping the bananas.
  • Dip the banana in the chocolate mix while holding the popsicle stick.
  • Roll the banana in the prepared toppings and place it on the cookie sheet
  • Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for at least 30 minutes after coating the bananas.

How Long Will Chocolate Dipped Bananas Last?

If you plan to freeze them for more than a week, read the storage information section below to avoid freezer burn.

Storage Information

If you want to store chocolate covered bananas, you have a couple of options. One option is to place them in a freezer bag to keep them frozen for at least a week.
