Diary of a Brown Eyed Girl: FROZEN BANANA PEANUT BUTTER BONBONS

FROZEN BANANA PEANUT BUTTER BONBONS

Monday, July 7, 2014

Good morning blogging world! Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July. We spent the day/night in Scottsdale at West World and had such a blast!

Today I would like to introduce you to my new obsession (thanks to the Hubs). Frozen Banana Peanut Butter Bon Bons. These are so easy to make and are so yummy! They are the perfect treat for summertime. If you like chocolate and bananas then you are going to love this recipe! Josh found this idea on Pinterest.

Here is what you will need...

(This makes about 24 bonbons)

3 ripe and large bananas
about 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (I used Jiffy)
10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (we decided to use white chocolate wafers instead)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/3 cup finely chopped nut toppings
small popsicle sticks (we used toothpicks)
Peel bananas and slice into medium-thick round slices.  I sliced my bananas about 1/3-inch thick.
Spoon peanut butter into a sandwich bag.  Squirt about 1 teaspoon of peanut butter onto half of the banana slices.  Top each peanut butter topped banana with a plain banana slice and press down just slightly.  

Insert toothpicks into each banana sandwich.
Place peanut butter pops on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Place in the freezer to harden for at least 30 minutes.
While the pops harden, melt the chocolate or white chocolate and coconut oil. We placed the white chocolate wafers and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl and placed it in the microwave until completely melted (1 minute).
Dip the slightly hardened banana sandwiches completely in the chocolate.  Return them to the parchment paper and immediately sprinkle with nut toppings.  After dipping all of the bananas, return to the freezer for at least 2 hours before serving.  Bananas will last for a week or two in the freezer.  You can also wrap them individually for storage in the freezer.
