Banana Bites

I had a surplus of bananas last week. This is the first time this has ever happened that I remember; fruit disappears very quickly in our home. Even when I buy it by the box! I debated as to whether to allow the bananas to mature into cooking bananas or use them for something else. I chose the 'something else' and made these bite sized treats.

I cut up each (large) banana into 5 pieces and stuck a toothpick into each banana piece. I then tossed them all into a freezer bag, tied a knot at the top of the bag and put it in the freezer overnight. The night morning I melted some chocolate chips (30 second bursts in the microwave, stirring the chocolate each time it came out of the microwave) , dipped each banana piece in the chocolate and then into hundreds and thousands. I laid them out onto a tray lined with baking paper and put them back into the freezer until I deemed it treat time!
My children loved these! I must point out that I used very robust bamboo toothpicks; they were more like small, two pronged forks. I must get some more of them before I run out, only to find that they are no longer being made!

These would be fantastic at a birthday party, provided bananas are in season!


  1. Those would be great at a party (or special treat day ;) ). They look so festive!

  2. You are such a good Momma! I think I will try these I have some bananas to use right now.
    Don't have the nice picks thou. Smile
    I also am going to do one of the frame projects as we as you always have special art to display. :)
    It's a great idea, as yes, where do you display it 'all'?
    Think of you often Jeneta & I enjoyed my visit!

  3. What a great idea to use up bananas, especially with summer in our doorsteps. They look so pretty all lined up covered in hundreds and thousands.

  4. Wonderful idea! They look delicious and fun.
