Easy recipe to make your own Banana Dippers.  Takes 5 minutes and simple for the kids to help with!

Have you seen the new product in the Grocery stores named Banana Dippers?  They sell for $3.50 and have 24 chocolate coated slices of banana in them. For $3.50 do you know how many banana’s you could dip in chocolate yourself?  You could dip at least 6 if not more closer to 10!

I say save the money and dip your own.  You can actually get creative with this and get your kids involved.  My 5 year old can slice a banana using a butter knife and I’ve not met a kid yet that didn’t like to dip things in chocolate.

This will take about 5 minutes and you’ve got a fun and easy snack made.

  3. While chocolate melts, line cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil.

We topped the peanut butter ones with a different topping than the plain ones. That way you can tell them apart in the freezer!
