How to make it

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Insert a pop stick in the bottom end of each banana or, if smaller portions are desired, in each banana half and place on the prepared baking sheet. Freeze for at least 1 hour.
  3. Combine the bacon and chopped peanuts in a shallow dish. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over medium heat or a bowl set over but not touching simmering water, stirring occasionally.
  4. Dip each frozen banana in melted chocolate and allow any excess to drip off.
  5. Roll the banana in the bacon-peanut mixture and then return to the parchment-lined baking sheet. Freezer again for at least 1 hour or until ready to serve.
