Cool off this summer with delicious Frozen Banana Popsicle Treats for the kids. Let the kids customize their frozen bananas with sprinkles, nuts, M&Ms, and more.
I love all of the topping possibilities in this fun snack. When I was a kid, we only used chocolate to cover our bananas and loved them. Now, everything is a twist on the old classic and so much more fun. We love creating fun twists on classics in the kitchen, like turning hot dogs into firecracker hot dogs, and turning S’mores into S’mores Burritos on the grill
Frozen Banana Popsicle Treats.
You can add M&Ms, nuts, sprinkles, coconut shavings, Reese’s peanut butter cups…
Honestly, I might have to do another round and add the Reese’s and coconut – yum!
