Frozen Chocolate-Covered Banana Bites (Quick and Easy Deliciousness!)

This is one of those recipes that, after you make it, is one that you know you will be making over and over. It's easy, uses ingredients that I almost always have in the house, and everybody LOVES these!! Plus, you can sort of customize the toppings to suit your people.

All you need is:
  • 2 bananas, each cut into 8 slices (I sliced off the very tips where it was pointy)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (you should use creamy, because crunchy is gross)
  • various toppings- I used chopped nuts, shredded coconut, and sprinkles
Before we continue, I have a comment about sprinkles. I only used them because my 7 year old requested them. I think, however, that sprinkles are very gross. They taste like chapstick, and they are the texture of wax and just get stuck in your teeth. If they made sprinkles out of, say, Red Vines, or Swedish Fish, that would be a different matter. This concludes my sprinkle trash talk.

Ok, so you need to put the chocolate chips and the peanut butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds, then stir until smooth. If it isn't smooth, pop it back into the microwave for 10 more seconds until it stirs up smooth. Then dip the banana slices into this mixture, setting them on a wax paper-lined cookie sheet when they're dipped.

Then sprinkle on whatever toppings you want

Then pop them in the freezer for a few hours! If you're like me, you can't really wait that long, so I had a semi-frozen one!

The banana gets all creamy and yummy when it's frozen!

These would make a fun weekend treat- you should make some to surprise your family!! Or make some and eat them all yourself! Ha ha!!

Have a GREAT Father's Day weekend, and make sure you celebrate your dad!


  1. So....you put the peanut butter and the chocolate chips into the same bowl, and soften them and stir them together, combining them into one mixture?

    Or, you soften them in separate bowls, and dip 1st into peanut butter and then into chocolate.

    I'm guessing the former, but I thought I'd check.

  2. It the first option, put them in the same bowl. :-) I was thinking white chocolate chips would be good too.....!!

  3. These are looking amazing! What a yummy and visibly appealing way to eat bananas!!

  4. Thank you!! They really are delicious!

  5. Do you need to freeze the bananas as well? Our can you dip them them then freeze then?
