Banana Dippers

These Banana Dippers are a new product in West Nashville Costco's ice cream section. Each pack has four chocolate covered frozen banana slices - tasty, low calorie and fairly healthy.

I've made a similar snack by dipping frozen bananas in melted chocolate chips. The store product is more consistent than my efforts, and bite sized, so easier to eat.

But...homemade is a great way to get rid of excess bananas. This is what I do:

Cut bananas into three inch lengths.
Freeze bananas over night.
Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler.
Dip the frozen banana pieces in the chocolate.
Refreeze on wax paper. (Can be kind of messy to eat.)
