Chocolate-Dipped Frozen Banana Bites

Simple, delicious and impressive for grownups , and a fun treat for the kiddies!

You will need:

2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons canola oil
Assorted toppings for coating bananas (such as crushed chocolate sandwich cookies, toffee bits, chopped Butterfinger candy bars, chopped salted peanuts, or toasted shredded sweetened coconut)
3 ripe bananas, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices


Stir chocolate and oil in heavy small saucepan over low heat just until smooth. Let stand 15 minutes to cool.

Place each topping in separate shallow dish. Line baking sheet with foil. Arrange banana slices on foil. Using fingers, dip 1 banana slice in chocolate, coating completely. Shake off excess chocolate. Drop dipped banana in 1 topping. Using clean hand, sprinkle more topping over banana to coat; transfer to foil-lined sheet. Repeat with remaining bananas, chocolate, and toppings. Freeze until firm, about 3 hours, then serve.

  1. Oh my goodness that looks yummy! Do you like cooked bananas? I have a great EASY recipe for them. Just put the banana (skin and all) in some foil and split it open like a baked potato. Put a little butter, some chocolate chips and some cut up marshmallows inside the banana. Wrap it up tight and bake @ 350 for about 10 minutes or until the insides are melted. These are great camping or at the park too. You can even throw them on the BBQ grill. So yummy! I'm gonna try yours now :)

  2. whoa... this is some serious good stuff!

  3. Kathy- your recipes sounds great- I'll be fixing that one really soon!

    Cheryl- it is! You can add your own toppings if you think of something else that is your favorite.

    Annie K- ditto.
