I'm back! After being out of my kitchen for four days, I was ready to jump
back in… even if it was making something as simple, semi-healthy, and delicious as these
Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites
-3 large bananas
1/2 cup chocolate chips (either semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used creamy, but crunchy would work too! It would just have chunks in it . . . obviously)
Toppings (optional)- I used crushed peanuts and coconut . . . but anything goes!
Set out a pan (I used a small cookie sheet) with a piece of wax paper on it.
Cut up the bananas into good-sized chunks. Each banana should give you around 6-8 pieces.
Heat the peanut butter and chocolate chips in the microwave on high for about a minute. Then stir until smooth.
Dip the banana pieces in the chocolate-peanut butter mixture. Lay them out leaving some space between them on the parchment/wax paper. Then when you've "covered" them all, use the remaining mixture to spoon over the tops (for even more chocolate-y goodness).
Top with toppings (if you want them!). Transfer to the freezer for about an hour until hardened.
You can enjoy them like this (but they really aren't frozen yet -- and when they're frozen, the banana tastes like vanilla ice cream) . . . I suggest then covering with some plastic wrap (or in a Tupperware/Rubbermaid container) and let freeze overnight.
