Chocolate Covered Bananas Rolled in Coconut
While I was peeling the bananas to make this recipe, I thought of that old double-dutch jump roping song, it went something like this…”Peel a banana upside down, see if you can touch the ground” “If you spell your name correct, you may have another chance” “Capitol L-Y-N-N, Capitol H-U” and so on…I remember jump roping to that song….Do you? Chocolate Covered Bananas Rolled in Coconut are delicious!
Do kids even jump rope anymore?? Do kids even know what double-dutch is?? Well, it’s definitely not a double shot of Dutch chocolate you’d order in your grande coffee at Starbucks!! Well, I’m pretty sure that “song” has dated me…so enough reminiscing and on to the recipe…Even though chocolate covered bananas have been around forever I’ve never made them or eaten one. I have no idea why I waited so long to make these tasty treats because
Chocolate Covered Bananas rolled in Coconut are delicious and what a great way to eat a banana….
Easy and Fun to Make
You can cover these chocolate covered bananas in just about anything you like. My favorites are coconut, mini chocolate chips and Heath Bits O’ Brickle Toffee Bits, yum! For this recipe I used ” plastic sticks” from a bouquet my daughter received from “Edible Arrangements. I don’t recommend using the plastic sticks due to the fact they were much to flimsy and the bananas became “top heavy.” Stick (pun intended) with wooden Popsicle sticks for this recipe.
You can buy Popsicle sticks at any hobby or craft stores. Otherwise you can do what I did, buy a couple boxes of Popsicle, invite your grand kids over for the day or night and let them eat some Popsicle. Wash the sticks, throw them in your silverware drawer and when you’re ready, proceed with the recipe! Even better yet, have your grand kids help you make and eat these yummy chocolate covered bananas.
Super easy and delicious.
- 6 medium ripe but firm bananas
- 2 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips, melted OR
- use a good quality dipping chocolate

Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.
Peel each banana (bananas can be cut in half, you'll need more sticks)

Cover each banana piece with melted chocolate using a large spoon.
