CHOCOLATE COVERED BANANAS
“There’s always money in the banana stand.” Okay, I realize if you’re not an Arrested Development fan, you have no idea what I’m talking about, but these chocolate covered frozen bananas are money, as the kids say (do they still say that? Lol, I may be dating myself a little bit here).

CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES
This recipe uses white chocolate to go along with the red white and blue holiday theme, but feel free to substitute healthier milk or dark chocolate depending on your tastes.
