Dessert Recipes for Kids

banana pop recipe
This banana pop recipe is a fun one for kids to help make for your next dessert.

Of course, even us big kids will have a blast making this dessert.

This fun dessert uses a half of a banana to create a popsicle.

Then cover it with some tasty honey (or melted chocolate instead if you want) and then roll it in your favorite toppings.

You can coat it with nuts, candy sprinkles, M&M's, crushed graham crackers or anything you can think of that will stick to the banana pop.

These delectable delights are like having a banana split without the ice cream and cherry on top.....yummy.
