Chocolate Banana Pops #SRC

Yum
This month for the Secret Recipe Club I was assigned to the blog, Well Dined, which I totally loved visiting.  So many recipes, so little time!  Since this is #Choctoberfest, all the chocolate recipes really caught my attention, such as this beautiful bundt cake, these boozy chocolate cookies, and these yummy Stout Brownies that I will have to make for my husband!


I decided on making these Chocolate Banana pops because they will be a welcome addition to our desserts in the freezer.  Very simple but so delicious and what a wonderful way to use up the extra sprinkles, chocolate chips, and nuts you have laying around but not enough to put into a recipe!



We've been eating the less ripe bananas as we have heard they have less sugar.  We are also using Enjoy Life chocolate chips, too, as we love the company.
