Chocolate-Banana Pops with Roasted Peanuts

By Chef Vanessa Cantave
  • 8 medium bananas
  • 1 cup salted dry-roasted peanuts, chopped 1
  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips

Special equipment: 8 wooden popsicle sticks (4 1/2- by 1/2-inch)

  1. Line a large baking sheet with wax or parchment paper. 2. Peel bananas and carefully insert a popsicle stick into bottom end of each banana, halfway up stick.
  2. Arrange bananas on the baking sheet and freeze until firm but not frozen hard, about 1 hour.
  3. Melt chocolate in a deep metal bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water,stirring occasionally, until smooth.
  4. Remove bowl of chocolate from pan.
  5. Working with 1 banana at a time, set banana in bowl and coat most of banana evenly in chocolate by spooning it on and smoothing it with the back of the spoon.
  6. Immediately sprinkle chopped peanuts over chocolate coating while chocolate is still wet, then return coated banana to wax paper–lined sheet, and let it set while coating remaining bananas.
  7. Refreeze bananas, if necessary, to firm up chocolate.
