These Frozen Chocolate Covered Banana Pops are a sweet treat for any time of year. An easy recipe that you can make your favorite way!
Frozen Chocolate Covered Bananas
If you have been looking for an easy way to give the kids healthy desserts or want one for yourself, these Frozen Chocolate Covered Banana Pops are the perfect treat! With only three ingredients, these frozen bananas are super easy to make, and can be created AND eaten by the kids themselves!
You’ll want to make sure to have skewers to place in the bananas before starting this recipe. If you don’t have any handy and want to make these, use chopsticks in each banana instead.
You’ll notice that I don’t specify what kind of chocolate chips to use in the ingredient checklist, and there’s a reason for that. Use the best chocolate for you! Use milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or even peanut butter chips. The best part about these delicious treats is that you can have a little fun with them.
Additionally, you can use your favorite toppings here. Cover your banana popsicles with round sprinkles (like I use), long jimmies, mini candies, or M&M’s. There are so many topping options, go for what you most enjoy or do a variety of toppings.
Another great thing about this homemade chocolate dipped banana recipe is that you can make a big batch and keep them in the freezer for up to 3 months. Perfect to bring out for hot summer days or if you want a treat.

How To Make Chocolate Covered Bananas
3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Colorful sprinkles (as many as you want!)
Peel your bananas and cut them in half. Take some wooden skewers and insert the pointy end into the cut (flat) side of the banana. If you are giving the treats to young children, it might be a good idea to snip the sharp end of the skewer off with a pair of scissors beforehand or use a popsicle stick instead of skewers.
Place the bananas on a parchment or wax paper lined baking sheet and freeze for 4 – 5 hours or until they are completely frozen solid.
Place your chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals until the chocolate is smooth and melted. If you would prefer not to use the microwave, you can melt your chocolate in a double boiler or a melting pot instead.
Holding the banana by the skewer, dip the top piece of banana into the melted chocolate, covering it until it’s approximately 1/2 covered. Work fast, as the chocolate will harden quickly after coming in contact with the frozen banana!
Immediately sprinkle the candy sprinkles over the chocolate coating before it hardens. Place your bananas back down on the cookie sheet to harden (or into a glass cup (skewer side down) to prevent flattening the chocolate beneath the banana.
Serve in about 2 or 3 minutes when the chocolate has hardened fully. Enjoy!
If you are making these ahead of time, but plan to serve the same day, put the sheet pan back into the freezer until later. If they are left at room temperature, they will soften quickly.
Store any leftover dipped bananas in an airtight container or wrapped tightly in plastic wrap in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Can I Use Anything Other Than Chocolate Chips For Dipping?
Yes! Chocolate chips are the most readily available option at most grocery stores, but you can also use chocolate melts or even chocolate shell for each frozen chocolate banana pop. They will have a slightly different texture – and the chocolate shell may be a little brittle if kept in the freezer over time – but they’ll taste great.
