If you’ve ever seen chocolate-covered whole bananas at the fair, or ever watched Arrested Development for that matter, these should look familiar. But in this bite-sized variation, they become a great dish to whip out for dessert at a summer party since they’re ideal for sharing. Also, no being tempted to ride the Gravitron and lose your dessert completely. Everybody wins! Read the original post here.

Frozen Banana Bonbons
3 ripe bananas
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
Optional: Toasted coconut
Note: If toasting coconut, use either shredded sweetened or unsweetened coconut and place it in a small saucepan on low, lightly stirring until tips are brown. Best if prepared before starting the recipe.
Cut bananas into bite-sized pieces. Line a pan or a tray with a layer of tinfoil or wax paper and place banana pieces on top. Put in freezer for an hour, or until frozen.
Melt chocolate and peanut butter together in the microwave.
Remove banana bits from the freezer and dip each in the chocolate mixture so that they are entirely covered. Place back on the tray.
Use a spoon to put coconut or sprinkles on top of the chocolate-covered banana immediately so that they stick before it freezes. Repeat until all bananas are covered. Place back in the freezer for at least an hour. Remove a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!
