Description

Frozen Chocolate Coconut Banana Bites will cure anyone’s sweet tooth. This satisfying, kid friendly snack is bite sized. Bananas chunks are topped with dark chocolate and shredded coconut and then frozen. A great summer treat.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 large ripe bananas, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
  • 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips {you can use milk or semi-sweet instead}
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut, sweetened {optional}

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper {you will need to be able to get the baking sheet in your freezer so you might need two small ones}.
  2. In a double boiler heat the water until it begins to simmer. In the top of the double boiler put the chocolate chips. Remove the water from the heat and put the top of the double boiler back on top of the water. Stir the chocolate chips until they are melted.
  3. Remove the chocolate from the boiling water. Using a fondue stick or a fork dip each banana slice into the chocolate until it is completely submerged {be careful not to loose the banana slice in the chocolate}.
  4. Place the chocolate banana slice on the parchment lined baking sheet. Once all of the bananas are done sprinkle shredded coconut over them.
  5. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 3-4 hours, or until frozen through. Store in an airtight container until you are ready to eat them.

Notes

Check out this article for other ways to melt chocolate chips.[br]You can use unsweetened coconut if you would like.[br]Other ideas for the topping on the chocolate bananas: orange zest, a sprinkle of sea salt, crushed peanuts, crushed walnuts or just enjoy them plain without a topping.[br]I have made these with no topping and just the banana and chocolate-they are great like that as well. Sometimes I make half with coconut and half plain for those that don’t like coconut.
