Each week as I stroll Save A Lot I can't help but notice their ever looming banana stand. There you'll find ripe bananas, green bananas, and those overly ripe ones for 29 cents a pound. Those overripe ones make the sweetest frozen treats. Grab a bag of chocolate chips from Aldi for $1.59 (milk chocolate or dark) and you can make a good size amount of these for under $2. Just freeze away and they'll be ready for little fingers.
6 medium bananas
12 oz. bag of chocolate chips
1 tab. shortening
Toppings on hand: chopped peanuts, toasted coconut, jimmies
Cut bananas into 1 inch sections. Insert a toothpick and freeze for one hour. In a microwave, melt chips and shortening. I use the 30 min. button and keep stirring after each round. Dip bananas in mixture, allow excess to drip off. Roll in desired toppings. Return to baking sheet and let freeze another hour. Drop into Ziploc bags.
