{ METHOD }

Line a baking tray or large plate with baking paper. Peel the bananas and cut them in half widthwise. Push a popsicle stick into each banana half from the flat cut side.

Melt the chocolate however you like, then dip in the bananas or drizzle the chocolate over the bananas. Sprinkle each banana pop with your fave topping idea so that they stick to the chocolate. Place the pops on the baking paper, then drizzle with tahini (if using).

Freeze for at least 3 hours before serving.

Topping ideas:

1⁄2 cup chopped nuts (such as hazelnuts, pistachios), shredded coconut, rose petals, cacao nibs, caramel sauce (recipe page 182), tahini, orange rind, matcha green tea powder, bee pollen
