Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Bananas

I do not like bananas. As a very young child, I actually did like them. I'm not quite sure when or why this changed, but now I can't stand them unless they are in something that will cover up their flavor and texture, like banana bread, which I happen to love. I also happen to love this treat. Banana chunks dipped in melted chocolate and peanut butter and then frozen? Yum! They do use up a couple of Points Plus values, but they are sweet enough that I am usually satisfied after eating just one. I topped mine with some colorful sprinkles, but you could leave them plain or top them with chopped peanuts, coconut, or anything else you can come up with. Make sure you start with banana chunks that are at least partially frozen. Also, it is easier if you cut the bananas and then freeze them, rather than trying to cut them after they're frozen.
Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Bananas
from: Pinterest
yield: 16 servings

What You Need
2 frozen bananas, cut into 8 chunks each
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter {Although, I bet crunchy would be great as well!}
sprinkles, coconut, chopped peanuts, etc., if desired

What To Do
1. In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in microwave. I did this by heating them on high for 30 seconds, stirring, and then heating on high for 15 seconds and stirring again. If not all of the chocolate is melted, keep stirring and it should melt. If not, microwave in 5 second increments.
2. Dip banana chunks into chocolate peanut butter mixture and top as desired.
3. Freeze several hours, until chocolate is set and banana has had time to re-freeze. Pin It
