My kiddos are FINALLY out of school. I’m convinced Chicago has the latest date going for the last day of school. While the kiddos are thrilled, camps don’t start for them until July, and mommy is looking for easy things for them to do.

On a completely unrelated note…all they do is eat. So I’m left looking for quick and easy summer recipeskid friendly dessert recipes, snack recipes, lunch recipes…. basically I need ALL of the recipes.

Enter banana pops. Much like mason jars, anything you put on a stick is instant gold. Next time your kids are eating you out of house and home, slow them down with this yummy project, and make easy banana desserts with a 4th of July spin!

Cool down this summer with easy to make banana pops. Great recipe to get the kids in the kitchen. Give your banana pops a red, white, and blue theme, and they are an instant 4th of July treat.

Easy Banana Desserts: 4th Of July Banana Pops

All you need to make these easy banana desserts is:

  • 1 or 2 bananas
  • 3 squares of chocolate almond bark melted
  • Toppings: I used red, white, and blue sugar, and sprinkles. I think chopped nuts, coconut shavings or crushed graham crackers would be yummy, too!



How To Make Banana Pops

Banana Pops are an easy dessert your kids can make. Have fun in the kitchen this summer!

1. Peel and slice bananas into thick slices.

2. Melt chocolate in microwave until soft. (This took me two 45 sec shots.)

3. Place a lollipop stick in each banana slice.

Banana Pops are as easy as putting banana slices on wooden skewers, covering in melted chocolate, and sprinkling sugar or other yummy toppings! Great recipe to make with the kids this summer.

4. Dip banana slices into melted chocolate and sprinkle with desired topping.

5. Place dipped banana slices on wax paper and freeze until hardened (about 2 hours).

Make your own banana pops for the 4th of July.
