Here is a great and relatively healthy treat that I came up with that your children could even make themselves. It only needs 3 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep time. Monkey Pops!
What You'll Need
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup roasted, salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
4 popsicle sticks
-Place chocolate chips in a large heatproof bowl, set over a medium pot of boiling water (be sure the bowl is not actually touching the water), stir until melted, remove from heat.
-Cut bananas in half and insert popsicle sticks in the flat ends
-Spoon the chocolate over the bananas, allow excess to drip off
-Sprinkle on the peanuts
That's it! Just place on a parchment lined cookie sheet or plate and pop in the freezer for at least 45 minutes. If you are wanting to save these for more than a day, be sure to put them in freezer safe bags once they are solid.
