Frozen Dark Chocolate Covered, Peanut Butter Filled, Banana Bites
This is a really fun, healthy and yummy take on the classic chocolate dipped frozen banana. What I love about this version is:
a) it has peanut butter - everything is better with peanut butter in my world
b) they are individual poppable portions - great for snacking
c) they remind me of tagalongs (my favorite girlscout cookie) except much better for you!
Make these and you will be making them every week and stocking them in your freezer for those random sweet cravings throughout the day :)
What you need:
chocolate chips (dark or semi sweet)
all natural, no stir peanut butter
slice your banana or bananas and lay on a wax paper lined baking sheet
spread peanut butter on top of each slice and pop in the freezer for 5-10 minutes
in the meantime melt your chocolate, stirring every 30 seconds to prevent burning it
take out your peanut butter covered banana slices and dunk one at a time into the melted chocolate
scoop out with a fork and tap on the side of the container to get off any excess chocolate
slide off with your finger or better a toothpick ;)
repeat with the rest of the banana slices until your sheet tray is full.
pop in the freezer for at least an hour.
