If you are running out of ideas to keep the kids entertained during the Easter holidays, then here is a fun food activity to get them in the kitchen, resulting in a delicious sweet treat. Why not experiment with other toppings too? Perhaps nuts, colourful sprinkles or even popcorn?!  recipe for chocolate dipped bananas

Makes 10 portions


  • 5 bananas
  • 250g dark chocolate
  • 200g granola
  • 10 lolly sticks


1/ For the adults: Start by melting your chocolate. Break the chocolate into pieces and place into a heatproof bowl. Place your bowl over a saucepan of lightly simmering water. You only need an inch of water or so at the bottom of the saucepan. Stir the chocolate continuously until the lumps have all melted ensuring none of the water is splashed into the bowl.

2/ Prep your dipping station – (adults) cut your bananas in half, (kids) pour your granola onto separate plates and carefully insert the lolly sticks into the bananas.

3/ Carefully dip the bananas into the melted chocolate holding the lolly stick, then roll in the granola. Place each dipped banana onto a lined baking tray and place in the freezer for an hour for the chocolate to harden up. recipe for chocolate dipped bananas
