good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming
the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or
shadow. (James 1:17)

Covered Banana Pops
½ cup heavy cream
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup chopped peanuts
the bananas and cut in half across to get 2 short pieces of banana.
Insert a Popsicle stick into each banana half for a handle. Wrap each
banana half in a piece of aluminum foil and place in the freezer for
at least 4 to 6 hours until frozen solid. Place the cream in a small
saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Remove from
the heat. Place the chocolate chips in a medium bowl, then carefully
pour the hot cream over the chips. Let the chocolate and cream sit for
a minute or two, then stir with a small spoon until blended and
chocolate is completely melted. Remove the bananas from the freezer
and unwrap. Cover a small baking sheet with wax paper or aluminum
foil. Holding the stick, dip one banana half in the melted chocolate
until completely coated. Sprinkle the coated banana with about 1
tablespoon of the nuts and set the banana on the covered baking sheet.
Repeat with the remaining bananas. Serve immediately, or place in the
freezer until ready to serve. Makes 8 servings.
