Chocolate Covered Banana Bites

It's hard to get kids to want a healthy snack sometimes. I love it when we can compromise. Instead of eating a chocolate bar or potato chips, this snack gives a little bit of sweet with the nutrition of a banana. And lets be honest...chocolate and peanut butter together is out of this world!  You will find yourself snacking right along with the kiddos, because they are just that good!

Chocolate Covered Banana Bites

3 bananas
peanut butter
chocolate covered candy coating/chocolate bark (I used about 1/2 a package)

Slice bananas about 1/2-3/4 inch thick. Put a dollop of peanut butter on each slice of banana. Lay out a sheet of wax paper on small cookie sheet. Place candy coating in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals until chocolate is smooth. Holding a fork, place banana slice on top and use a spoon to coat banana. Shake off excess chocolate. Place on wax paper and freeze for 3-5 hours.

Here are some more fun ideas for some sweet treats for your kids, try some! You'll be the coolest mom on the block by making some of these fun recipes :)
