INGREDIENTS
8 popsicle sticks
4 bananas peeled and halved crosswise
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon sugar
1 ( 12 ounce) bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, finely chopped

DIRECTIONS
Insert popsicle sticks into the thickest end of each banana half. Transfer to a wax paper-lined baking sheet and freeze for 2 hours. 

In a small saucepan, heat cream and sugar over medium low heat until sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. Remove from heat; set aside. Melt chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water. Add heavy cream mixture and stir until smooth; remove from the heat. 

Transfer walnuts to a wide, shallow dish or pie pan. Working with one at a time, dip frozen bananas in chocolate. (You may have to spoon some of the chocolate over the banana and smooth it out.) Sprinkle walnuts all over banana, then transfer as done to the lined baking sheet and freeze until ready to eat.
