The title says it all. It’s pure happiness : a crunchy chocolate cover with a frozen banana and peanut butter core. Decadent and chilling at the same time. If you’ve been suffering from the heat wave, those Chocolate Covered Frozen Banana & Peanut Butter Bites are the perfect treat for you.
I’ve always loved frozen bananas, I think it’s the perfect snack or easy dessert. Add some peanut butter and I’m a happy woman. And if you like portion control as I do, those bites are your new best friends! But be careful, they are highly addictive, I’m warning you. You might not be able to eat just one or two (I’m guilty for that one….). The nutritional info is for two bites because I’m pretty sure you won’t eat just one. Make sure you have some kids/friends/family around.
This recipe calls for melted chocolate, so check out this article if you want to learn how to correctly melt you chocolate. Other than that, it’s super easy! To dip in chocolate, I’ve used two forks. You don’t need fancy equipment.
Make sure to choose medium ripe bananas. Unripe bananas would be tasteless and fully ripped bananas too difficult to handle.

- 3 medium ripe bananas, sliced
- 1/4 cup smooth salted peanut butter
- 10 oz baking dark chocolate
- Arrange half of the banana slices on a baking sheet with parchment paper, and spread peanut butter on them.
- Top with the other half of banana slices and put in the freezer for about one hour.
- Melt 2/3 of chocolate (about 6.5 oz). When still hot, add in remaining chocolate and stir until smooth and shiny (it's called tempering chocolate).
- Remove bananas from the freezer and dip them into chocolate. You have to work quickly before the sandwiches start to defrost and get mushy. Remove excess chocolate and put back on the baking sheet.
- Freeze at least 3 hours or until ready to serve.
If they're too hard to be eaten right out of the freezer, let them sit for a few minutes at room temperature.
