This popsicles are to die for and are so stinking easy to make.

Cason and I had a VERY messy blast putting these Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Popsicles together.

The best part is, there was a little bit of chocolate mixture left over. Unfortunately for me, my little man beat me too the punch and started to eat the chocolate without me!!! Little stinker! {although, smart kid, he knew he needed to act fast if he wanted some before mommy came back}
