These Chocolate Covered Banana Walnut Bites are a SUPER easy sweet snack or dessert to serve at your next party or gathering! Kids AND adults will love them!
How to make chocolate banana bites
I love the combination of chocolate and bananas. I mean, who wouldn’t? Bananas are healthy and chocolate CAN be super healthy as long as you stick to dark. I like a semi-sweet or dark chocolate for this recipe since bananas are already pretty sweet. If you love sugar and kids are eating these, milk chocolate would be perfect for them! But you can choose whichever chocolate you like best.
These bites are a kid-friendly dessert and ideal for serving at kids birthday parties or even slumber parties. You can even have the melted chocolate ready-to-go and the banana slices on the side. Then the kids can make their own chocolate banana bites with a few different toppings to choose from!
So to make these banana bites, all you need to do is cut a ripe banana (not TOO ripe) into small 1-2″ rounds. Melt some chocolate in the microwave using a small bowl and then dip your banana slices into the chocolate. You could also pour the chocolate over top of your banana bites to make it even easier. Finally, top your wet chocolate with some crushed walnuts and skewer them with a Popsicle stick if you have them.
If you are allergic to nuts, you can swap out the walnuts with these other yummy toppings:
- shredded coconut
- rainbow sprinkles (for kids)
- mini chocolate chips
- mini marshmallows
- mini M&M’s
How to store your bananas
You can make these banana bites ahead of time and either keep them in the fridge or store them in the freezer for frozen banana bites! They thaw pretty quickly and transport very well! They should last for about 3-5 days in the fridge or 4-6 weeks in the freezer.
