Introduction: Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites

Frozen Treats Contest

Runner Up in the
Frozen Treats Contest

If you have chocolate and/or peanut butter and/or banana cravings as much as I do, then this frozen treat is sure to be a winner.

One of these nibbles will easily satisfy a summertime sweet tooth and are soooo easy to make!

Step 1: Slice, Spread and Freeze

Start with this simple step:
  • Slice ripe bananas (maybe 3/8" thick)
  • Spread peanut butter between slices and sandwich together
  • Freeze slices until firm

Step 2: Take a Chocolate Dip and Eat (or Freeze for Later)

Combine in a microwave safe bowl: 
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips (semi-sweet, milk, white - your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon of oil (canola or vegetable)
Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat until chips are almost completed melted (about 3 intervals).

Remove banana slices from the freezer and using a long pronged fork (i.e. marshmallow roaster), dip the slices into the melted chocolate.  Remove the excess chocolate and allow to cool on the fork before setting on waxed paper.

Store these tasty bites in the freezer until the next PB-B-C craving occurs and enjoy!

I am excited to find these. I know the number of bananas for 1 pkg of chocolate chips will vary, but is there an approximate # needed if sliced the thickness you have listed, so I can freeze enough bananas and not take all day to make if I should have frozen more banana slices. Thanks

So delicious! They look wonderful!

My husband and the work crew here love them. I told my daughter who is visiting in a couple of weeks that I wanted to make them for my grandson who has allergies. She was so excited I have to email the recipe to her so she could make them at home for her family. My son-in-law is a fireman and paramedic in Utah and she thought the guys at the firehouse would like them also. Thanks they taste great!!!

These look delicious and so simple! I can't wait to try them. You could even carve the banana in a heart shape before slicing to make little heart bites for a special someone... :-)

Awesome instructable!! I'm not a big fan of peanut butter so maybe I could use nuttella instead but overall really good Thanks!

OMG...that is a FABULOUS IDEA!!!

The banana bites are as delicious as I thought they would be. The first ones I tried were not refrozen and the banana melted in my mouth. I'm surprised I had enough willpower to put the rest back in the freezer.
I have a nifty banana slicer which cuts slices about 1/4" thick which seemed perfect. The banana was a little over ripe, I'd use a less ripe one next time. I chopped up a block of dark Whittaker's chocolate (an excellent New Zealand brand) and melted it in a makeshift double boiler instead of a microwave. The tiny fork along with a mini spatula worked well to keep the frozen banana and PB under control. My husband and I love this recipe!
