Chocolate-Banana Snacks

10 toothpicks
1/3 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 medium bananas
1/3 c. milk chocolate ready-to-spread frosting
1 tsp. multicolored candy sprinkles

Line small cookie sheet or plate with wax paper. Peel bananas and cut each banana into 5 chunks. Place banana chunks on wax paper. Insert toothpicks into each chunk. Place in freezer for 20 mins or until bananas are frozen.

Meanwhile, place chocolate chips in glass bowl and heat in microwave for 60-90 secs or until chocolate is melted. Add frosting and mix well. Microwave for another 15-20 secs. or until desired dipping consistency.

Dip each banana chunk into chocolate mixture. Sprinkle with candy sprinkles. Return to wax paper. (If chocolate mixture becomes too stiff to dip, microwave on High for 5-10 secs. or until softened.) Freeze dipped banana chunks for 1 hour or until chocolate is firm and bananas are frozen.
