Makes 4 serving(s)

  • 2 medium bananas, peeled and halved crosswise
  • 2 tablespoons peanuts
  • 1/4 cup crisp rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Peel and slice in half, crosswise, each banana.
  • Insert a wooden craft stick or skewer into the cut end of each banana half. Be careful not to push the stick or skewer all the way through.
  • Place on nonstick baking sheet. Cover with foil. Freeze at least 1 hour or until frozen firm. (Freeze overnight, if you like.)
  • Meanwhile, finely chop peanuts or pulse in a blender about 10 times, or until crumbly.
  • Pour cereal into a plastic bag. Seal it. Then smash the cereal with your fists about 50 times.
  • Toss together the cereal and chopped nuts in the bag. Pour out onto a piece of wax paper or foil.
  • Dribble chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Melt them in the microwave at high-power for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave 15 seconds more, or until fully melted.
  • With a butter knife, spread the top side of one banana half with melted chocolate, like it’s frosting!
  • Roll the chocolate-coated part in the cereal-nut mixture to coat.
  • Working quickly, repeat steps 8 and 9 with the remaining banana halves.
  • Wrap each pop individually in plastic wrap; return to the freezer. Freeze 2 more hours or overnight.
note: You can store this deliciously sweet snack in the freezer for up to several days.
