Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Bananas

I've found my new favorite snack!  Not only does it combine 3 of my favorite ingredients, but it is so easy to make!  The peanut butter is optional and of course you can dress these bananas up by dipping them into all sorts of toppings (nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, sprinkles, etc...) after covering them in chocolate. Enjoy!

Frozen Chocolate Bananas 

4 bananas at your preferred peak of ripeness (I'm picky about my bananas!)
4 teaspoons peanut butter (optional)
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
assorted toppings if desired
4 popsicle or craft sticks 

Cover a plate or cookie sheet with waxed paper.  Peel bananas and cut about an inch off of one end.  Stick about an inch of a popsicle stick into the cut end.  If using peanut butter spread it onto the bananas now.  Place bananas onto the waxed paper and put into the freezer for about one hour.  After an hour, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for 1-2 minutes or until just melted.  Stir to get out the lumps.  If your chocolate seems to thick you can mix in 1 Tablespoon of melted butter.  You do not want to overheat the chocolate or it will burn.  Spread the chocolate onto the frozen bananas and dip into toppings.  You'll need to work fast because the frozen bananas make the chocolate harden quickly.  Store Chocolate Bananas in an airtight container in your freezer.
