Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas Bring Back Lots Of Memories

When our boys were little, we lived near Newport Beach, CA. We loved taking our boys every couple of weeks to Balboa Island (at Newport Beach) to feed the ducks! Our weekend or early evening walks would take us around the entire waterfront island.

We loved walking with our little boys, enjoying the sunshine AND gawking at the stunning multi-million dollar waterfront homes right next to the sidewalks we walked on. The sidewalks were also right next to the water in the bay! It was our CHEAP form of family entertainment, and our boys LOVED this fun family time!

Our walks around the island took quite a while (especially with two curious little boys AND hungry ducks!), as you can imagine. These family walks would always end up on the main street, which had lots of shops, restaurants, AND take out food stands!

We would end our adventure by purchasing  “Balboa Bars” (chocolate covered vanilla ice cream bars) or Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas for each of us! My favorite treat was getting a frozen banana, and watching them dip it into a vat of melted chocolate! YUM!

How I Decided To Make This Bite-Size Frozen Treat

I have made frozen slices of bananas as snacks for several years, but decided recently that they would be even more delicious if the bite-sized slices were dipped in chocolate. I mean… who doesn’t enjoy a good chocolate dipped frozen banana at times, so I made some!

There were some semi-sweet and white chocolate chips left over in the pantry from a recent recipe, along with some butterscotch chips. I melted a little bit of EACH variety, and dipped some frozen banana slices into the chocolate to coat them, and then re-froze the banana slices. These chocolate dipped frozen banana bites are the result!

The results were wonderful! Here’s some photos and a few details showing how to make these frozen treats!

How To Make Chocolate Dipped Frozen Banana Bites

First you will need to slice up several bananas (I used 3). Place the slices in a single layer (not touching) on a large baking tray and freeze for 2 hours.

Dipping the Frozen Banana Bites

Remove the frozen banana slices once solidly frozen. Melt the chocolate chips (whatever kind you like), and then completely coat each of the frozen banana slices.

The photo below shows me dipping the frozen banana bites into semi-sweet chocolate. Let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl after dipping.

Melted semi-sweet chocolate is used to coat a frozen banana bite.

Place the covered frozen banana bites onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Refreeze the slices after coating with chocolate.

Decorating Chocolate Dipped Frozen Banana Bites

Once solidly frozen, you can decorate the tops of the chocolate dipped frozen banana bites, if desired. Drizzle some melted white chocolate and/or butterscotch chips over each one. Place back into the freezer for a final time. Freeze for a couple hours before serving!

I also coated some of the banana slices in white chocolate, then drizzled melted semi-sweet and butterscotch chips over the tops. Just remember to freeze coated slices for a couple hours before serving!

Here’s a closeup picture of one that was cut into, so you could see what the inside looks like… nothing but frozen banana! YUM!

PERFECTION!  The chocolate dipped frozen banana bites are just the right size for a quick bite. Instead of eating an entire chocolate dipped frozen banana, I can eat just a couple slices and be deliriously happy! Hope you’ll give these a try. You (and most kids) will love ’em!
