These Chocolate Covered Frozen Banana Bites are perfect for those “I just need a little somethin’ sweet” moments.  They’re especially fun to enjoy during those warm weather months.

Sometimes, we just need a little treat.  Not a big ice cream sundae or a large piece of cake (although I LOVE both of those things when the time is right), just a bite or two of something in the treat category to satisfy that whisper of a sweet tooth.  We all know those moments, right? And to me, if that little treat happens to be cool and creamy and covered in chocolate, then life just feels that much better.

Why this Recipe Works:

  • The flavor combination of bananas and chocolate is SO good! Once frozen, the banana centers have a nice, rich, ice creamy-like texture. YUM!
  • Using minimal ingredients, (one of them being a fruit!), this is one of the healthiest treat recipes out there.
  • This recipe is great to make with your family. And alhough it might get a little messy, that’s half the fun!

How to Make Chocolate Covered Frozen Banana Bites:

1. First, slice your banana into 3/4 inch-sized coins.  Set them aside for now.

Also, grab a nonstick or parchment-lined baking sheet and have it on your counter ready to go.

2. Next, place your chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds. Afterwards, give that chocolate a good stir.  If the chips aren’t completely melted, continue to heat in the microwave in 30 second intervals until the chocolate is completely smooth.

3. This next part is very important: in your less dominant hand, pick up a fork, and then set one piece of banana on the tines (one of the flat sides of the banana, that is) and hold it over the bowl of melted chocolate.  Then with your dominant hand, grab a spoon and start drizzling the piece of banana with melted chocolate until it’s completely coated.

Scrape off the excess chocolate dripping from the bottom and then transfer the banana bite to your baking sheet. Note: try your best not to use your fingers at all during this process, as it can get very messy! (Been there, done that.)

4. Repeat step #3 with the remaining banana pieces, keeping in mind that it’s important to work quickly and get each bite coated before that chocolate starts to harden.

5. Sprinkle each banana bite with your toppings of choice.  I like a little variety, so I usually go with rainbow sprinkles and chopped nuts.

6.  Place this baking sheet loaded with sweet goodness in your freezer for about 20 minutes.  After that, those glorious Chocolate Covered Banana Bites should be good to go!   I transfer whatever banana bites don’t get devoured right away to an airtight container to keep in the freezer.

And that’s all there is to it. All three of my boys (which includes my husband, Jeff) absolutely love these little treats, and I hope you do, too!

Top Tips for Making Chocolate Covered Frozen Banana Bites:

  • I like both vegan dark chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips with this recipe, but you can absolutely try any type of vegan chocolate you like, including a chopped chocolate bar. If you can’t get the chocolate smooth enough, add a 1/2 teaspoon of melted coconut oil.
  • Feel free to get creative with the toppings. These banana bites would also go splendidly with sprinkles, chopped nuts, shredded coconut, or even mini chocolate chips.
  • These banana bites keep in the freezer for about 3-4 weeks. It’s best to keep them in a container and not a bag, as they’re more likely to lose their toppings in a bag.

I learned from the stand that makes frozen bananas at county Fair they put stick into banana and freeze before putting chocalate & toppings on. It made a huge difference. I’m going to try it with your bite size receipe
