Five stacked bon bons on white surface

A Guilt-Free Indulgence

These fruit-sweetened bonbons are a simple but tasty treat for adults and kids alike. Coat bananas in chocolate sauce and toppings to freeze as directed below or, for a quicker option, cut and freeze bananas in smaller chunks and serve in a bowl, drizzled with warmed sauce and toppings of your choice. Either way, they’re scrumptious!
