We are the biggest chocolate fans. We basically eat it in any form. But these banana bites remove any guilt because bananas are good for you….RIGHT? And if they are dipped in a chocolate/peanut butter mixture, then that adds a whole new twist!
Peanut butter is a good source of protein, so these have got to be considered as a healthy snack? At least we’ll keep telling ourselves that they are.
The kids will love helping you make these. The only cooking involved is melting the peanut butter and chocolate chips in the microwave. And if they are too young to do that, they can choose their own toppings for the banana bites.
Are milk chocolate chips better than semi sweet for this recipe?
This recipe was originally made with semi sweet chocolate chips. But the last time we made them, we only had milk chocolate chips on hand. Both are delicious.
So, it’s really up to you. If you are a milk chocolate chip lover, then you will want to use milk chocolate chips. If dark semi sweet chocolate chips are your jam, then use the semi sweet.
Even though we used milk chocolate chips, we still sprinkled the tops of some banana bites with mini semi sweet chocolate chips, and they tasted so yummy.
what ingredients are needed for frozen chocolate and peanut butter banana bites?
To make these amazing Frozen Chocolate and Peanut Butter Banana Bites, you need 3 main ingredients. Those main ingredients include:

Then you can add on sorts of optional toppings. Here are a few of the optional toppings we used for our banana bites:

how to make Frozen chocolate and peanut butter banana bites
- Cover a small cookie sheet or baking dish with wax paper or parchment paper.
- Slice each banana into 6 – 8 pieces.
- In a medium sized bowl, combine the chocolate chips and peanut butter. Heat in the microwave on high for about 1 minute. Stirring until smooth.
- Dip the banana pieces into the chocolate/peanut butter mixture.
- Lay them out on the prepared pan leaving a little space between each one.
- After they have all been dipped, spoon any remaining chocolate over each bite, for more chocolate goodness.
- Top each banana bite with the toppings of your choice.
- Transfer to the freezer for about one hour to set up. If you want the banana to be really frozen on the inside, you will want to freeze them for a few hours.
- When the bananas are frozen for a few hours, these bites really taste like a vanilla/banana ice cream treat. SO YUMMY!
- If freezing for a longer amount of time, cover with plastic wrap or an airtight freezer container.
