This summertime treat takes you straight back to childhood! There was hardly anything better than biting into a frozen chocolate shell, rich banana, and sweet coconut on a hot day.
Chocolate, banana, and coconut are such a great taste combination, as the bitterness of dark chocolate helps tamper down the sweetness.
This recipe is also versatile, as you can choose any number of toppings in addition to or instead of the coconut, like crushed nuts of your choice.
While you can make these ahead of time, they should be eaten all at once, as the banana may become mushy as it thaws.
