Frozen Chocolate Banana Bites
inspired by Ashley
makes about 8 bites
2 medium bananas
1/2 C chocolate chips (I used mini, semi-sweet)
Toppings: shredded coconut, sprinkles, etc.
Optional: Vegetable oil to thin out chocolate, if necessary
+ Cut the bananas into bite size pieces, about 2 inches thick. Insert a toothpick in the center and place in freezer on a piece of parchment paper for about 30 minutes.
+ Meanwhile, measure out the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and melt 30 seconds, stirring and adding more time if needed. If the chocolate is too thick, add a drizzle of oil and stir well.
+ Pour toppings into small bowls. Take out the bananas from the freezer and one at a time, roll them in the bowl of melted chocolate. Add the topping(s) very quickly, as the chocolate will harden right away. Place back on parchment paper. Eat right away or store in the freezer inside a covered container.
