  • Stir chocolate mixture to combine. Stir in banana. Divide among 8 to 10 3-ounce pop molds. Insert sticks and freeze overnight.

Prep Note

If you don’t have molds, pour the mixture into 3-ounce paper cups, cover them with heavy-duty foil (or a double layer of foil), then insert wooden sticks and freeze. Tear off the paper and foil, then slurp away.
