These White Chocolate-Covered Bananas Are Our Favorite 4th of July Dessert
When it comes to 4th of July desserts, you know we're all about the tastiest, most colorful creations. We also won't turn our noses up at healthified versions of 4th of July desserts. These white chocolate-covered bananas meet literally all of our criteria, and they're refreshing to eat, simple to make, and way too easy to devour all in one sitting. But hey, they're fruit-based, so why not? Whip these up this Independence Day, and everyone from your kids to your girl gang is sure to love them.
White Chocolate-Covered Bananas
- 4 bananas
- 2 cups white candy melts
- 2 cups red candy melts
- 2 cups blue candy melts
- Red, white and blue sprinkles
- Popsicle or treat sticks
- Cut the bananas in half and place them on top of popsicle or treat sticks. Lay the bananas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper in a single layer and then place them in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight.
- Melt the different colored candy melts in separate bowls or microwavable dishes, according to the package instructions.
- Once the bananas are solidly frozen, remove them from the freezer and dip into the different candy melt colors as your heart desires. Pour sprinkles on top while the candy melt is still wet, as the candy melt will quickly harden over the frozen banana. Repeat with each banana and store in the freezer until you’re ready to eat and celebrate!
