Chocolate covered banana pops are my current dessert obsession. I have a serious love affair going on with bananas. They make a daily appearance in my diet… and if I’m out all day, you can bet your bottom dollar that I have a banana or two with me. I’ve got a healthy sweet tooth to satisfy after all!
And can you really blame me? Bananas are loaded with tons of marvelous nutrients like vitamin B6, manganese, vitamin C, potassium, fiber, copper and biotin. And your gut gets some goodness too; the probiotics in bananas help to keep your gut microbiome healthy and happy.
Super bonus – they also help to support your beautiful heart, thanks to lovely potassium. Potassium helps to keep your blood pressure regulated and might even protect you from atherosclerosis (the hardening and narrowing of your arteries). Booyah!
While these gorgeous fruits are pretty fantastical all on their own, I certainly don’t see anything wrong with amping up the awesomeness by dipping them in homemade chocolate! What do you think? Wanna treat yourself to some banana pops too?

Nothing goes hand in hand with winter quite like Hot Chocolate. When the winter chill has weaseled it’s way into your core, a nice, steaming cup of hot chocolate does wonders to loosen it’s grips. My husband LOVES it… I think many of those living in a winter wonderland are hot chocolate fans. Unfortunately, I am the odd man out. I’m not a fan of hot drinks… and so, I often enjoy my ‘hot’ chocolate cold. Thank goodness for freezers. But, hot or cold, the flavour is always marvelous. Chocolate is the ultimate soul food, am I right?!
Unfortunately, my tastes in drinks often leads me to forget to treat my hubby, Adrien, to hot chocolate! I realized this yesterday and decided to create something special for him. And since I am certain that many of you share the hot chocolate love, I’m happy to provide you with the recipe. I, of course, enjoyed it cold. Something you can do as well if you share my tastes!
My idea of heaven is chocolate and peanut butter. They were made for each other and I was made to adore them! So I decided to christen my new tart pans by honouring my love of peanut butter and chocolate and creating giant chocolate peanut butter cups (best idea ever!)
You store these babies in the freezer, so you can take your time eating them if you’d like… savour the heck out of them. And know that if you do that you have far more self-control than I (they lasted a day in my house).
Here’s how you can make your own!
