We made banana pops last week and today was pretty warm so I thought it would be a great afternoon snack. I'm not a huge banana fan, but these are good!
(showing me where some of the chocolate fell on the ground. excuse her shirtless-ness. laundry is a big enough chore without stain treating added to it.)
To make, I cut bananas in half, stuck them on the lower halves of our popsicle molds, dipped them in chocolate that had peanut butter mixed into it and then stuck them in the freezer on a wax paper lined tray. Super easy. I used the dairy-free, soy-free chocolate chips that contain only three ingredients and the healthy peanut butter that also only has three ingredients. Thus, I feel like these are pretty healthy as far as treats so.
(excited about life.)
I had to eat Britt's down a little bit. She was intimidated by the size, plus she is always taken aback by frozen foods. Ash pretty much only ate the chocolate off of hers and a teeny bit of her banana. Haha!
(see? all the chocolate gone and most of the frozen banana left. courtesy of ash.)
P.S. I did like True Grit, until the end, when it shows how things turned out for the girl after growing up. That part was just plain stupid and lame. Which kinda ruined everything else.
P.P.S. Keep those on the east coast in your prayers. I sure am! I'm worried about Hurricane Irene. I have a brother who is on a mission in New York right now. And even though they are predicting it will hit North Carolina, it still could miss and go further north. Wherever it hits I hope and pray that it's mild and that the people are as safe and prepared as possible.
P.P.P. S. I have a giveaway winner to announce. The lucky individual who will be getting the beautiful Puget Sound print is......AudreyO! She said, "Wow...great day for me to stop by. I love the print. I'll happily follow. :)"
Congrats! Just need your mailing address, though, like I said this print is on back order so it'll be at least a couple of weeks before it's available. Thanks!
