Polar Bear Pops

4 firm, ripe bananas
8 wooden craft sticks
2 cups white chocolate chips
1-1/2 Tbsp. vegetable shortening
Wafer candies
Assorted small candies

Cut each banana in half. Insert a craft stick at the bottom, position two peanut halves at the
top to look like ears and place on a wire rack. Melt chocolate and shortening on top of a double
boiler. Pour mixture over the banana as it sits on the rack until it is well-covered.
To make a bear face: Place a wafer on the banana for the snout area, attaching it by adding a
tiny amount of the chocolate mixture. Use a piece of cherry for the mouth, attaching it with the
chocolate mixture. Add a circle candy for the nose and two small candies for the eyes. Place on
a tray lined with wax paper and freeze for an hour.
