BaNilla Wafer Bites

When we were little we had the same routine after school. You got home, washed your hands, then jumped on a barstool to see what Mom had in store for an after school snack. I always loved her snacks that she prepared. Now that I have kids of my own I love making fun treats for them while they watch on the barstools.
Back to school season really is coming up fast and these BaNilla Wafer Bites are perfect for a fun after school snack. It only takes 5 ingredients and a few minutes to throw together!

This recipe is a perfect one for kids to help!

  • 1 box of Kroger Vanilla Wafer cookies
  • 1 container of Kroger Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 4 bananas, sliced into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 cup of Kroger chocolate chips
  • sprinkles


  1. Spread a small amount of peanut butter on each wafer, place a slice of banana in the middle and close like a little sandwich.
  2. Melt the chocolate chips on the stovetop or in the microwave until completely melted. Very carefully dip the banana sandwich into the chocolate. I dipped about half of it in the chocolate. As soon as you dip them in chocolate, put on some sprinkles.
  3. Place your chocolate dipped Banilla Wafer Bites on some wax paper or foil. To make the chocolate harden faster, you can place them in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.

-Quick Tips-

If you are using large bananas you can use normal Vanilla Wafer cookies. If your bananas are medium or small bananas, use Mini Vanilla Wafer cookies instead.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 10 hours. They are best right after you make them. If you go longer than 10 hours, your bananas will start to go brown and the cookies will go soft.

Sometimes the banana would move a little bit when I would dip it in the chocolate. All you need to do is move it back into place after you dip it in chocolate so it will harden exactly where you want it!

If you have little kids, I would suggest getting the mini wafers and a smaller banana. That way, they are easier to eat.


My kids gave this recipe two thumbs up. In other words, they LOVED it!

    First of all I want tot tell you how much I love your recipes! I was wondering if there was any way you could make your website faster? It seems like with all of the ads it takes a long time to load and it's pretty frustrating to navigate. I would probably visit more often if the screen didn't freeze every few seconds. I have found myself google searching your recipes instead of using the search tool on your website because it's so much faster.
