Chocolate Covered Frozen Banana Bites 3 Ways

Chocolate Covered Frozen Banana Bites 3 Ways
A few weeks ago, i made chocolate covered frozen bananas on a stick for my children (and me too!) They were too hard to eat. The banana was frozen solid and the chocolate fell off as soon as you bit into it. They sure looked cute though!
When i posted the pic on facebook, i received several comments asking for the recipe. Then i realized they were too hard to eat. I promised i would show you a better way, and here is what i came up with. I made these two weeks ago and they were a huge hit! They taste like frozen ice cream treats. They don't last long, so make plenty!
4 Bananas
Peanut Butter (optional)
Marshmallow Fluff (optional)
Nutella (optional)
Dark Chocolate Wafers for coating (i used one pound)
Parchment Paper

1. Peel and cut bananas into half inch size rounds. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper.
2. Top with topping of your choice, or nothing if you want them plain. I used a spoon and a dipping tool as shown to get my toppings on my bananas. If you are using fluff to top bananas, make sure to do those last, the fluff tends to spread.
3. Freeze for at least 2 hours.
4. Melt chocolate in microwave safe plastic bowl, or over a double boiler.
5. Line another baking sheet with parchment paper.
6. Dip entire banana bite into chocolate and remove by scooping up with a fork. Place on parchment paper to cool. Continue for each banana bite.
7. When chocolate is hardened, place in freezer container and keep frozen until ready to eat.

What a great sweet treat when you need it!
