I am definitely not the first to make bananas dipped in chocolate and frozen. Whoever came up with the idea is a genius! I was craving a sweet treat after dinner last night, but I didn’t want something bread-y and super sugary. The solution to my craving? These monkey bites! No monkeying around here! All you have to do is melt some chocolate chips, chop up banana and smother it in peanut butter and chocolate, and put the bites in the freezer. An hour later, you have a delectable treat.
This treat is so fun! Everyone will go “bananas” over it (hahahaha)!
Makes around 25 bites
- 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips (I heart Ghiradelli semisweet chocolate chips)
- a teaspoon or two of nondairy milk to dilute the chocolate
- 2 bananas
- peanut butter
Cut up two bananas into 1 inch slices. Spread a ½ teaspoon or so of peanut butter on to each banana slice. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds. Pull the bowl out after 30 seconds (be careful because it will be hot!) and add a teaspoon of nondairy milk to the chocolate if it’s too thick. Dip the bananas in the chocolate mixture! You can always just add the peanut butter to the chocolate mixture so you don’t have to spread peanut butter onto each banana slice. I just held the banana bite and dipped the top of it into chocolate. Place dipped bananas onto parchment paper and put them in the freezer for an hour or so to harden the chocolate. When the chocolate is hardened, take out and enjoy!
