Summer can be crazier than the school year. We made a large calendar to hang in our TV room to display our commitments throughout the month so my kids understand I can’t be more than one place at the same time. With all the extra activities, my kids are starving and often have to skip meals or at least delay them a few hours. That is when portable nutritious snacks come in handy, and they just love these Frozen Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Bites.

You really don’t even need to keep them in the freezer. After I melt the chocolate, I put them in the freezer but once the chocolate hardens they can stay in the fridge. Make a double batch of these go to snacks, since my kids gobbled them up. 

What you will need for these Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Bites: 

  • Jif To Go® creamy peanut butter
  • Bananas
  • Toothpicks
  • Dark Chocolate for dipping (optional)

Simply cut your bananas in uniform slices. Add about a teaspoon of peanut butter in between two banana slices.

Secure the stack of bananas with a toothpick and roll in melted dark chocolate. (you can just freeze them after you secure them in toothpicks but my kids adore a little dark chocolate)

Allow the chocolate to set in the freezer or fridge and then gobble.
