3-4 ripe bananas
2 tbsp of honey
1 bag (12 oz) of semi-sweet chocolate pieces
Iceblock mould
6 wooden iceblock sticks

1. Peel the bananas and place in a bowl.

2. Add the honey. Mash together using a wooden spoon until there are no large chunks.

3. Fill the moulds with the banana-honey mixture. Place sticks in the centre of the mixture, pushing them only halfway down.

6. Put back into the microwave and heat for another 20 seconds if the chocolate is not entirely melted.

7. Remove the frozen banana iceblocks from the freezer and take them out of their moulds.

8. Dip them in the melted chocolate, covering completely.

9. Put them on a pan lined with parchment paper. Put them back in the freezer overnight.
