Banana Bon Bon Bites
Ok, by now you may have noticed... I have a slight, but healthy, obsession with all things peanut butter and chocolate. You throw a banana in the mix and I am over the moon!
I saw this idea floating around on pinterest and I knew I had to make them. Words are not necessary...you'll understand as soon as you pop the first one in your mouth!
natural peanut butter (if its unsalted, and you are crazy cool like me, you may want to sprinkle the smallest amount of sea salt on it... you wont be sorry)
1 Tbsp coconut oil (optional)
Melt chocolate chips in either a double boiler or in the microwave.
-To do a double boiler, heat water in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Place a glass, heat proof bowl over the top of the sauce pan, making sure that bottom of bowl does not touch the water. Add in chocolate chips and coconut oil and stir until melted and shiny.
-If using a microwave, add chocolate chips and coconut oil to a glass bowl. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring in between. Heat until melted and shiny.
Slice bananas into bite sized pieces. Spread a layer of peanut butter on top of banana (sprinkle with a tiny bit of salt), and drip/dunk/drown in melted chocolate.
Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and stick in the freezer until hardened.
