It continues to be hot as Hades in Chicago! Like too-hot-to-go-outside-hot! After posting about all the great no-bake desserts that are out there to make in heat waves like this yesterday, I forgot a great one. Peanut Butter Banana Bites. This is something that I make frequently because it’s just too easy yet I haven’t done a post on it. So, today is the day that I share my yummy Peanut Butter Banana Bites. Let me tell you – kids LOVE them because they are yummy. Moms love them because they are easy-peasy!
1-2 bananas (depending on how many you want)
1/2 cup melted chocolate
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
1) Peel the banana and pop it in the freezer for an hour.
2) When the banana is mostly frozen, melt your chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler.
3) Remove the frozen banana(s) from the freezer and cut into 1 inch chunks. Take a tsp of peanut butter and smear on the top of each banana pieces and then dip each banana/peanut butter piece into the chocolate.
4) Set the chocolate peanut butter banana bites on a wax paper covered plate or tray and return to the freezer for 15-30 minutes.
