i have been trying so many new ideas to keep my kids eating well and not junk food.and also to keep them interesting in the good food thats good for them.i love to make fun stuff with them that they can enjoy and have memorable moments with me.so heres afew that we do and we have lots of fun eating them as well.insert a posicle stick into end of a banana peel,then dipped the banana into chocolate until its covered,let the excess chocolate drip off,you can then place the dipped banana on waxed paper,then roll it in schredded coconut,cover it with another piece of wax paper,and put into freezer until chocolate has harden.this is really good and kids love it.i dont give my kids much chocolate or junk but for a treat i do this.

MIne love ants on a log, you take the celery sticks, cut them into smallish sections, spread some peanut butter and put rasins on top. It's their favorite snack. Well healthy snack any ways. I also get the carmel dip for the apples sometimes it never lasts as long as I'd hope.

You can use other fruits as well as bannanas. I use apples cut up in small chunks. Stick a toothpick in them and fix a bowl with melted carmel. This is a fun dip for the kids. It also taste greats. I like to serve fresh not frozen. My family don't eat if it is frozen. when you put chocolate or carmel on fruit it will go bad from the inside out so eat right away. My family loves chocolate covered strawberries. I pick out the good large berries and dipp them in chocolate and again use wax paper to let them drain. You can hold these up to about 48 hours before you start running into problems. The only thing is that they don't last that long in my house. I think I will give your recipe a try and see what happens.

Wow that sounds delicious and also, banana is very good for the kids, as is the coconut. I would think that the chocolate is minimal and this is really an excellent idea for a sweet treat. I like strawberries dipped in chocolate as well... and pineapple, come to that. Yummmmmeeeeeeee! Thank you for sharing and Brightest Blessings.
