Chocolate Covered Banana Pops

11 Jun

Posted by: Katie

Now that it’s summer and super hot I have had a constant supply of popsicles in my freezer. In anticipation of one of my favorite people coming home from Taiwan, I made sure to make one her favorite treats, chocolate covered banana pops!

The supplies:

Supplies (without the parchment paper)

A big bunch of bananas,

wooden skewer sticks

semi sweet chocolate chips

a make shift double broiler

parchment & wax paper

I peeled the naners, cut them in half and put skewer sticks through them.

Ready to dunk

I do not have a double broiler right now so I macguivered one with a small pot and loaf pan. Careful trying this at home folks, but it has worked perfectly for me. I put water in the pot and brought it to a slow boil and put the bag of semi sweet chocolates in the loaf pan. It slowly melted and I used a spatula to mix it up until it was completely smooth. Then I dunked the bananas on skewers and spread the chocolate around the banana with the spatula.

Dunk & Twirl

I placed the chocolate covered bananas on the parchment paper and wrapped them up in saran wrap to stick in the freezer.

When you take them out of the freezer you get a chilly and tasty treat!

I Thought I Was Past Fart Jokes

4 Oct

I’m not going to talk about work too much on here, but I work at a  very conservative and professional place. I am the youngest person in my office and outside of lunch I definitely keep my silly locked up.

Today we had a really long morning meeting and I am, 1) not a morning person… at all and 2) was bored. So afterwards I saw my very professional and 40-ish year old friend Tom and complained a little.

Me: Oh man, that wealth advisory meeting was brutal.

Tom: Why, did you have a fart attack?

I thought I was above fart jokes but I seriously kept laughing about it all day.

Ps. If I am having a really hard time keeping my eyes open in a meeting or in class or anything like that, my secret favorite thing to do is hold my breath. You can’t fall asleep holding your breath.

Damn, I was going for thoughtful…

We don’t take ourselves seriously.  Neither should you.

Joey: Which one do you like better?
Bianca: Umm, I think I like the white shirt better.
Joey: Yeah, it’s-it’s more…
Bianca: Pensive?
Joey: Damn, I was going for thoughtful.

We are K and L – best friends since we were 4 years old.  We are both tall, blonde and look shockingly similar to each other, often mistaken for sisters, sometimes even twins.  We have everything in common – from going on adventures to shopping on the cheap to laughing hysterically at the most random and awkward moments of our daily lives.

This is a blog about…everything.  Outfits we love, movies we recommend, beauty tutorials, how to make table centerpieces for the holidays and funny stories like the time L fell into a zebra cage when she was younger.  It’s meant as an all around go-to for those who read it, and we hope it is helpful, or at the very least entertaining.  If you would like us to post about specific beauty products or want to see particular tutorials or craft ideas, please email us and we’ll do our best to help you out!
