How to Make your own Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Stuffed Banana Bites…
Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Stuffed Banana Bites are very easy to make. All you need are several bananas, your favorite nut butter, chocolate chips or dark chocolate to melt, and chopped nuts or finely shredded coconut to decorate.
Just hollow out your banana, dip the end in melted chocolate and roll in nuts, fill with almond butter, sunflower seed butter or homemade peanut butter. Nut free Variation: roll in coconut instead of nuts and top with whipped cream & a cherry
Try and find bananas with little to no curve for best results. The straighter the bananas, the better. Peel and slice off the ends of each banana. Reserve any cut pieces to make banana ice cream with later!

Cut each banana into about two 3″ long pieces. The number of banana pieces you will get from each banana will vary, depending on the size of your banana and the length of your banana bites. You should get about 2-3 banana bites per banana. I prefer to make smaller ones for little kids.
Stand your banana bites up on their flat, cut side. Hollow out the center using a straw or apple corer. Be sure not to go all the way down, leaving about a half inch of the banana, unhallowed, at the bottom.
Melt your chocolate chips according to the package, in a small, deep bowl. Dip the bottom half of your banana bites into the melted chocolate and roll in chopped nuts or sprinkles. Place on wax paper to dry. Refrigerate until chocolate has set and dry.
Once dry, remove the bananas from your refrigerator. Transfer the nut butter to a pastry bag or a zip lock bag with the corner snipped off, and pipe it into your hollowed out bananas. Use peanut butter, almond butter, macadamia nut butter or sunflower seed butter for nut free.
