Now that summer vacation is upon us, it can be hard to find daily activities to keep our kiddos happy and entertained. Bringing your child into the kitchen to help cook is fun and it will help them gain appreciation for the foods they eat. Spork Foods has created an easy, sweet treat that your child will love to help you make…and eat! These Chocolate Frozen Bananas with Pistachio Chewy Bites are a great way to spend some quality cooking time with your kids.

Tip: Did you know… the oils on the inside of a banana peel will help reduce the itchiness and inflammation of a bug bite or poison ivy! Good to know!

Chocolate Frozen Bananas with Pistachio Chewy Bites
Serves 2-4

4 pieces Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites
