Frozen Chocolate Banana Bites
- Three ripe (but not too ripe!) bananas
- 12 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1.5 Tablespoons vegetable oil
Place a sheet of wax paper on a baking sheet.
Slice the bananas into ½ inch slices.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and oil. Place in microwave and heat on full (HIGH) power for 30 seconds. Stir. Place back in microwave for 10-second increments, stirring in between, until the chocolate is just smooth. (FYI – Don’t over cook, or the chocolate will harden and look grainy.)
Dip the banana slices in the chocolate, making sure to cover entire slice in chocolate.
Place slices on wax paper. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for six hours or overnight until slices are thoroughly frozen.
