{Frozen} Banana Split on a Stick

Who knew that March 28th was National Something on a Stick Day?  I didn't, but it's nice when things work out.  Everything is better on a stick.  The State Fair has that figured out.  Corn Dogs, Candy Apples.  We even tried a Steak Dinner on a Stick at the Texas State Fair once.  Not kidding.  Steak, potatoes and even rolls.  ON A STICK.  It's just more fun that way.  I decided to take the flavors of a banana split and put them on a stick, sans ice cream.  Frozen Fruit.  Healthy.  And then I served them with marshmallow sauce and whipped cream.  So maybe not as healthy, but still so much fun.  These little gems are super easy to prepare and can be made ahead.  Ideal for your next get together.  A great little after school snack too.  And since National Something on a Stick Day exists, it's a perfect way to celebrate that too!

A fun twist on an old favorite.
And the perfect way to celebrate
National Something on a Stick Day!
Kind of healthy too...

Serve with a "schmear" of marshmallow ice cream topping
and a dollop of whipped cream for the authentic
banana split flavor.
Who doesn't love their food on a stick?
It's just more fun that way.

Make ahead and enjoy!

{Frozen} Banana Split on a Stick

short skewers or picks
Fresh Strawberries, tops cut off
Bananas, sliced into thick slices
Fresh Pineapple Chunks, patted dry with a paper towel
3 squares chocolate almond bark
Chopped Nuts (I used Pecans, because in Oklahoma we use Pecans in everything)
marshmallow topping for serving
whipped cream for serving

Melt the chocolate squares in a shallow bowl in the microwave in 30-second intervals until smooth.  Place the chopped nuts in a shallow dish.  Place one strawberry, one banana slice and one pineapple chunk on a skewer.  Dip the flat side into the melted chocolate and then into the chopped nuts.  Place in a freezer safe container that has been lined with waxed paper.  When you are ready to serve, place the skewers on a platter and serve with marshmallow ice cream topping and whipped cream. 

Prep Time:  Approximately 10 minutes     Needs to Freeze
