Go bananas

Another fun summer dessert recipe for the families out there with a house full of summer-lovin’ kiddos, these delicious chocolate-covered frozen bananas featured on Spend With Pennies will make them go ape!

A clever idea for jazzing up those plain-Jane bananas on your kitchen counter, these guilt-free frozen treats can easily be made by small hands and dipped in a variety of fun flavors. To get started, stick popsicle sticks into bananas that are ripe, but not overripe, and place them in the freezer for an hour. For toppings, try nuts, toffee, peanuts, coconut and Smucker’s Magic Shell dipping chocolate. Yum!
