In The Kitchen: Frozen Dark Chocolate Covered Banana Bites

My oldest daughter definitely got her sweet tooth from her mama.  Emma asks for a small treat after most meals and since I’m always craving the same, I am constantly looking for healthy, fun bites we can both enjoy.  These frozen dark chocolate covered banana bites hit the spot and were super easy to make.  We stashed a bunch in the freezer so we will have something sweet to munch on all weekend long.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 bananas (or however many you want to use/make)
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) Ghirardelli dark chocolate melting wafers
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

Instructions:

  1. Slice bananas into quarter-sized circles and lay out on a wax-paper-lined baking sheet.
  2. Place in the freezer and leave there until frozen solid.
  3. Mix the dark chocolate melting wafers and 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a double broiler over the stove.  Stir constantly for about 5 minutes, until smooth.
  4. Using a fork, dip each frozen banana slice into the melted chocolate mixture and coat evenly.  Place back onto the wax-paper-lined baking sheet and repeat with the remaining frozen banana slices.
  5. Once complete, place the baking sheet back into the freezer to harden.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
