I’m going to interrupt this summer heat wave with a quick frozen treat, that is not only simple to make, but substantially better for you than most frozen treats you can buy at the store. I’ve been on a bit of a baking freeze (pun intended)……..and ever since I discovered Wilton Peanut Butter Candy Melts, I’ve been dreaming up different ways to use them.  They were great when I covered brownies with them, so I though, why not frozen bananas covered in peanut butter candy! After all, who doesn’t love bananas and peanut butter, with a little chocolate?

Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Bites

Ingredients

  • 3 firm bananas (not too ripe)
  • 1 bag Peanut Butter Candy Melts
  • 1-2 tsp shortening
  • 2/3 cup Chocolate Chips

Instructions

  1. Line pan with parchment paper
  2. Cut bananas into 1 inch sections
  3. Melt peanut butter candy melts with a a little shortening according to directions on the bag
  4. dip bananas in candy and place on lined pan
  5. Melt chocolate chips and drizzle over banana bites (using a disposable decorating bag or zip lock bag with the tip snipped off)

Notes

I got about 24 bites out of 3 bananas. If they are frozen solid, you will want to let them sit out for about 5 minutes before trying to bite into one.

  9. What a fun little treat! I love frozen bananas and PB is always welcome:)

  10. Yum! I wonder if you could use real peanut butter instead of the candy chips? I think I’ll try it both ways!

  11. Yum! I wonder if you could use real peanut butter in place of the candy chips? I think I’ll have to try it both ways!

    They look delicious and easy for the kiddos to help out with.

  18. How cute are you? These are so pretty!

  19. Love anything with peanut butter! Look fantastic!

  20. Oh wow, I would love these. I like that they are bite sized too so you can spread out your indulgence : )

  21. I may have to pull out my true Elvis and spinkle with (freshly cooked ) crispy bacon bits

  22. sprinkle w/ bacon bits not spinkle :O)

  23. YUM-O! Must find those candy melts (:

  24. What a great idea for a quick, original, tasty sweet!
    I’m just a little afraid of the sweetness level of this banana-PB combo… I’d be tempted to make my own PB with no sugar added since banana is already quite sweet.

  25. Cheryl, great idea! Love the combo and love that its a treat thats actually good for you!

  26. What a great idea for those peanut butter melts! I have some in my cabinet waiting to be used. This would be a great after school snack!

  27. My kids would adore these. I want to come and do photo workshops with you!

    LOVE <3

  28. Oh my word, these look scrumptious Cheryl! Love these!

  29. What a great and quick (to prepare) snack. I think my own problem would be trying not to grab them out of the freezer while they are waiting to freeze!

  30. These look like they would be perfect for my kids! Delish!

  31. These look great, and I think I’m going to try Nutella instead of chocolate. Nothing personal against your recipe as I think it would be amazing, I just have a horrible addiction to Nutella. =)

  32. Yum-mee!

    Happy blogoversary 🙂

  33. You hit the target with these, Cheryl!

  34. Yummy! I have been looking for a way to make a frozen banana treat, but had no idea what to do. Thank you so much for the wonderful “recipe”. I might just add a bit of caramel to these too!

  35. I officially hate you. OMG those look delicious!!!!

  36. I make peanut butter “frosted” frozen bananas for my healthy kids cooking classes but I never have melted down pb candies like this…great idea! And I agree with Georgia that it’s nice to have them bite-sized!

  37. I could stock my freezer with these and be happy till Christmas. And I think I just might…

  48. I love them. Now I don’t have to go to Disneyland for a chocolate covered banana with peanuts on them whch is about $100.00 per adult plus the way over the top price for the banana. These are much cheaper. Thank you for the recipe and letting me know you can buy peanut butter candy chips.
