Chocolate Covered Banana Bites

Banana, chocolate and peanut butter - what more could your child want? Bite sized treats are always the most loved and these chocolate covered bananas filled with peanut butter are no exception.


My daughter has a sweet tooth and likes something small after a meal. She is not really fond of anything very sweet so this is a perfect treat for her. She can make it herself and it satisfies her need for something sweet.



I made these on a very hot day and even in my temperature controlled kitchen I had a hard time piping the peanut butter. I finally put the piping bag in the refrigerator for a few minutes along with the chocolate dipped bananas and that did the trick.

You will need
1 banana
1 handful of chocolate chips (I use Nestle semi sweet chips)
1 tbsp. milk
3 tbsp. peanut butter

Peel and cut the banana into 1-1 1/2 inch pieces. Using a spoon scoop out the center.


Place the chocolate chips in a bowl and melt them in the microwave. About 30-35 seconds stirring twice should do the trick. Add in the milk and stir the chocolate well. Swirl the banana pieces in the chocolate and place them upright on a plate. Refrigerate for an hour until the chocolate hardens. Put peanut butter in a piping bag with a wide nozzle. Pipe it into the hollowed banana letting it spill over the top. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes.


Enjoy!
