  • Cut 1 inch off the bottom of each banana and gently insert a popsicle stick into each one. Carefully remove and discard banana peels. Place bananas on the prepared baking sheet and freeze until solid, at least 2 hours.

  • Place chocolate chips and shortening in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes.

  • Dip frozen bananas into the melted chocolate and roll in coconut.

  • Eat immediately or return to the freezer until ready to serve.

Cook's Note:

Chopped nuts, sprinkles, or other toppings may be substituted for shredded coconut, if preferred.
