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 set it on your counter so it's ready to go.
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, stirring in between, until the chocolate is completely smooth. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate over a double boiler on the stove.
This next part is very important: in your less dominant hand, pick up a fork and set one piece of banana on the tines. Hold the fork with the banana on it over the bowl of melted chocolate. Then with your dominant hand, grab a spoon and start drizzling melted chocolate over the piece of banana 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.)
Repeat this process 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.
Sprinkle each banana bite with your toppings of choice. I like a little variety, so I usually go with rainbow sprinkles and chopped nuts.
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.
