Magic Monkey Bananas

Our class enjoyed a wonderful cooking project and delicious snack today...Magic Monkey Bananas.

No More Cookies!Yesterday we read the story No More Cookies by Paeony Lewis.  In the story a child tries to bargain with Mom for more cookies devising clever plans to get her wish.  In the end, Mom decides to help her make an alternative dessert using bananas. 

So today, we peeled halves of bananas...

rolled them in melted chocolate chips (we used Ghirardelli semi sweet chips as we have a dairy allergy)...

rolled them in sprinkles....

stuck a popsicle stick in one end, and put them on a tray covered in wax paper.

We then put them in the freezer for about half an hour.

They were absolutely delicious!! 

The recipe is in the back of the book.  I made sure to send a copy of it home with the children today as they all wanted to make it with their families. 


  1. What a lovely sweet treat. Will definitely be trying this with my littlies.

  2. We love this book too! Looks like your class had lots of fun!
