Chocolate-Covered Frozen Banana & Peanut Butter Bites
Chocolate, peanut butter and bananas—oh, these are a few of our favorite things, and they’re coming together in these ridiculously yummy Chocolate-Covered Frozen Banana & Peanut Butter Bites from Not Enough Cinnamon! An easy, no-bake dessert, these frozen banana bites top banana slices with peanut butter and another banana slice, then freeze for about an hour. In the meantime, start melting chocolate (we like dark chocolate here!) for your chocolate coating; stir until smooth and shiny. Remove the banana “sandwiches” from the freezer and dip each into the chocolate, coating completely. Freeze for up to three hours or until ready to serve. These are an adorable end to any end-of-summer soiree and also make the perfect pop-’em-in-your-mouth treat for a little end-of-day indulgence!
