Makes 30 pieces


  • 3 ripe large bananas
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate (60 percent cacao), chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted peanuts


    Active time: 20 minutes
    Total time: 2 hours 20 minutes

    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Peel bananas and slice them into 1/4-inch-thick rounds; you should have about 60. Lay half the slices on prepared baking sheet. Using 2 spoons, place 1/4 tsp. peanut butter on each slice. Top with remaining banana slices. Cover and freeze until bites are completely frozen, about 2 hours.

    Meanwhile, place chocolate in a small bowl and set bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir chocolate until it has just melted. Spoon about 1/2 tsp. melted chocolate over each frozen banana bite and quickly sprinkle with 1/4 tsp. peanuts before chocolate hardens. Serve immediately, or arrange the bites in single layers between sheets of parchment paper in an airtight container and freeze until ready to eat; bites will keep for 1 week.
