Once Spring hits, there’s absolutely nothing I love more than sitting outside by the pool and taking it easy. The cool breeze on my face, the perfectly warm sun carefully kissing my skin, and a good snack give me a chance to unwind after a long day of teaching. However, when I’m by the pool, I don’t exactly want to take a huge snack with me and I like to have something that’s easy to eat since I usually like to take a book to read. My perfect Spring snack? Monkey Tails! Or more specifically…Fruity Pebbles Monkey Tails!
What’s a Monkey Tail?
It’s a frozen, chocolate covered banana with delicious toppings! Right now, until Saturday, April 5th, Post Cereals (Honey Bunches of Oats, Fruity Pebbles, Great Grains, Grape Nuts), are on sale at Walgreens for $1.99 (while supplies last)! I grabbed Fruity Pebbles because it’s a personal favorite, and love using them to make my Monkey Tails.
The Fruity Pebbles Monkey Tails use just a couple ingredients, most of which I had at my house already: Fruity Pebbles, bananas, and milk chocolate chips! I also used popsicle sticks, wax paper, and a small cookie sheet for this recipe. Seriously, this recipe can NOT be any easier. You don’t have to be a good cook or baker at all to make this yummy snack.
- ¼ cup Fruity Pebbles cereal
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 3 bananas sliced in half
- 6 popsicle sticks
- wax paper
- aluminum foil
- cookie sheet
- Prepare your work station by putting wax paper on a cookie sheet. Make sure it's trimmed to fit your cookie sheet and isn't sticking out.
- Insert popsicle sticks in the bottom of each banana half about halfway or a little less than halfway.
- Put your chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl, and melt for 30 seconds. Stir. Then microwave for an additional 15 seconds and stir.
- Using a spoon or butter knife, spread chocolate around your banana evenly. Sprinkle Fruity Pebbles on top of the banana before the chocolate dries, and place on wax paper.
- Repeat until you have finished all of your bananas.
- Cover your cookie sheet of Fruity Pebbles Monkey Tails with aluminum foil and place in freezer for at least 2 hours.
I absolutely think these Fruity Pebbles Monkey Tails are delicious and hope you think so too! If you aren’t a fan of Fruity Pebbles, try crushing up Honey Bunches of Oats or Grape Nuts cereals for a different taste. Using cereal in a way that isn’t typical can help you discover flavors you may not have thought about before. Plus, these little treats are low in calories, easy to hold, and a healthier option for those not wanting to give their kids candy. I hope you’ll try them out!
