Chocolate Covered Bananas!

This will be my last posting for Kids in the Kitchen.  My coworker will be taking over for me and will be sure to keep you and your family in the kitchen having fun for a long time to come.  For my last posting I am sharing my favorite kind of popsicle, a frozen chocolate covered banana.  They are great tasting and good for you. 

Ingredients:

Bananas: a little more green means more firm which makes the dipping process easier in my opinion

chocolated melted

popsicle sticks

chopped peanuts if desired

Directions:

Peel the bananas and insert the popsicle stick into one end until about 3/4 of the stick is in the banana.  Dip the entire banana into chocolate that you have melted either in the microwave or over a double boiler.  Place the chocolat covered banana on cookiesheet that you lined with wax paper.  Freeze for at least 3 hours.

ENJOY!

Strawberries, Sour cream and Brown Sugar!

This is my all time favorite dessert.  I crave it all the time and cant tell you how many times during the summer I treat myself to this great treat.  Best part it is a no bake dessert that even your little ones can put together.

Ingredients:

Strawberries cut into slices

Sour Cream

Brown Sugar

Directions:

Take a big spoonful of thick sour cream and spread it on the bottom of a plat or bowl, thick enough that you can scoop it up with a spoon or for easily.  Next slice up your strawberries and cover the sour cream with them.  Take a tablespoon or so of brown sugar and sprinkle that on top of the strawberries. 

ENJOY!
