Chocolate Covered Bananas a Back to School Treat

Today  I chatted with Matt Swaim on the Sonrise Morning Show about how kids were schooled during Bible days.

Learning was taught both at the synagogue for boys and at home for both boys and girls to teach the practical lessons for everyday life, which meant a trade for the male and the care and feeding of the household for the female.

Think of Jesus apprenticing under Joseph for carpentry. And the blessed virgin learning from her mother and relatives all about the dietary laws, how to make the home ready for special holidays and Sabbath, and important skills like weaving, spinning and my favorite, making home remedies!

Of course, after school snacks were probably fruit or nuts.

Today I wanted to share a fun and super easy, though a bit messy, treat for kids.

The chocolate covered bananas give a boost of potassium and a bit of energy after a long day at school.


No real recipe, but just take banana or banana “drums” (1-2″ round pieces) and stick a popsicle stick in the banana.

Dip in melted chocolate. (I saw one photo where the melted chocolate was poured into a tall glass and the whole banana dunked into that for less mess.)

Place on sprayed foil lined pan and freeze uncovered until hard. Then freeze, covered. Eat straight from the freezer.

You can also sprinkle them with nuts, jimmies or whatever before freezing.
