Peanut Butter Chocolate Covered Banana's!

Now that's a mouth full isn't it?

Let's be honest, anything dipped in chocolate is fool proof and completely delicious!
The last 2 weeks with Loren's Birthday in the mix and my in laws being in town, I wanted to have little desserts, treats, and goodies around the house for people to snack on after dinner.
I believe nothing makes a home a home like some cozy decorating and little treats!

So when you are not in the mood for baking or just don't have the time... these little bite size banana's are super easy to make and totally de-lish!

Nothing too fancy... just start out with these few basic ingredients...
Chocolate Almond Bark, Peanut Butter, and Bananas.

After you melt the chocolate (30 second incraments in the microwave) add in a scoop or two of peanut butter! For real, it's that easy! Doesn't it sound yummy already?
From here you could dip just about anything in this mixture. Pretzels, strawberries, drizzle it over popcorn, etc. But for that day I had some bananas on hand that needed to be used up.
So line a baking sheet with wax paper and put your cut banana pieces on there....

Roll your banana pieces in the chocolate peanut butter mixture...

and then drop them one by one back onto the wax paper...

As they start to dry or "set up" the chocolate hardens (like almond bark does) and you have these nice, hard, chocolate peanut butter bites!

Easy peasy!

At my house we are all big fans of the chocolate, peanut butter, banana combo!
Elvis definitely had a great thing in the making with that power house of ingredients!

And like I said, this little treat could be tweeked so many different ways! Add the peanut butter or don't add the peanut butter! Try white chocolate instead of milk chocolate. Dip different kinds of fruit in. Dip half a cookie in the mixture and let it harden. Drizzle it over different cakes, cookies, or popcorn. (I am sooo doing this now! Chocolate, peanut butter, peanuts, and popcorn! WOW!)

This really is a great "go to" recipe for you girls that don't like to bake... like my friend Liz who seems to think she has an allergy to baking! lol

So, don't let your creative cooking stop at my recipe. But definitely give this quick treat a try when you need something fast or are just wanting a little snack at night while you and your hubby are sitting down to watch a movie! ;)

Men love treats! Men love wives who make them treats!

Momma always taught me the way to a mans heart was through his stomach.
Can I get an Amen?!

Hopefully you girls are inspired to whip up a treat tonight! For your hubby, for your babes, or just for YOU!

NOTE: Make sure you store these in the fridge.

Chat later,
