A simple dessert that people love! You can use anything you want in place of the toffee: sprinkles, nuts, cookie crumbs, or whatever! This is also really good with dark chocolate.

Instructions Checklist
  • Cover a baking sheet with waxed paper.

  • Spoon a thin layer of peanut butter on top of each banana slice. Insert a toothpick through the peanut butter layer into the banana. Place banana bites onto the prepared baking sheet; freeze for 30 minutes to overnight.

  • Melt chocolate and shortening in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching.

  • Cover another baking sheet with waxed paper.

  • Remove 2 to 4 banana bites from the freezer at a time; coat each bite with chocolate mixture. Place coated banana bites on the second baking sheet; sprinkle each with toffee bits. Repeat until all the bites are coated. Return banana bites to freezer until set, at least 1 hour. Allow bites to sit in room temperature for about 15 minutes before serving.

Soooo Gooood my newest addiction!! Love frozen chocolate dipped bananas and love these bite sized treats even more with the addition of peanut butter and because they are bite sized. I used a bag of semisweet chocolate chips and did not add shortening once they were melted. I also sub'd the toffee chips out and used crushed peanuts instead. Peanut butter and banana chunks really need to be frozen well to make the next step of dipping in chocolate work well. I didn't measure the peanut butter either and just used my judgment when topping a banana slice. These little frozen bites of delight are rich satisfying and delicious! Read More

I thought it was ok taste-wise. Nothing spectacular. At first I didn't want to make them due to the prep time so I improvised. I sliced the bananas and put them in a dish put a dollop of peanut butter on top and added the toothpick. I melted the chocolate and drizzled it over all. They weren't completely covered as they would have been if I had dipped them but the taste was comparable and this way was much easier to prepare. Read More

These were so good, but so rich. You're gonna need a glass of milk! They were easy to make, but time consuming. Definitely plan on making these the day before you want to serve them. The part I found most tedious was putting the peanut butter on. I might experiment next time with melting the P.B and freezing the banana slices first, then dipping them in P.B then freezing again, then dipping in chocolate. You could use P.B chips, but it wouldn't be quite the same. All in all this was a hit with my daughter's softball team. The girls devoured a double batch and none were left over. Read More

Awesome I loved it. As a crazed Nutella addict I also made a few using just the Nutella bananas chopped nuts and even a couple using shaved coconut. That was my favorite. Read More

These were ok. I love peanut butter and chocolate but the frozen banana was a weird texture. I took another reviewers suggestion and warmed the peanut butter so that it was easy to dip the (frozen) bananas in it. I melted the chocolate in the microwave. Read More

I love these.That being said next time I will use chocolate chips (leave out the shortening) and coat with nuts. I also will melt some peanut butter to dip part of them in. Read More

these were great my hubby n 5 year old loved them! couple tips freeze them over night or atleast a good 6 hrs on both freeze times. the chocolate made the banana mushy but they were still good. when i kept the left overs in the freezer all night they came solid n were better. on the second freeze after the chocolate coating i froze them 3 hrs and they weren't 2 bad mushy wise so if u cant do over night i would recommend at least 5 -6 hrs and test them out in the processes 2 see if they need longer every fridge is different!

I love these. Frozen bananas with peanut butter are one of my favorites. Instead of globing the peanut butter on the banana, I used a straw to poke a hole through the middle of the entire length of banana, then put the peanut butter in a plastic bag and snipped off the corner and filled the banana with peanut butter. Froze that over night and dipped it in chocolate and topped with toffee. Read More
