So, I’m sure most of you are sick of the summer’s heat and craving the crispness of a fall morning…well, until that time comes, try these super easy, yet delectable bite-size frozen treats. Who doesn’t like the banana + peanut butter + chocolate combo, right? Hopefully, they will make the temperatures a little more bearable.

3 firm bananas (not too ripe)
1 bag Peanut Butter Candy Melts
1-2 tsp shortening
2/3 cup Chocolate Chips
Line a few plates with parchment paper. Cut 3 pretty firm (not too ripe) bananas into 1-inch bites and set aside.
Warm 1 cup peanut butter (I haven’t tried it, but I’m sure another nut butter would be great too, like almond or cashew) in a small saucepan over low heat until melty. Add 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips to the peanut butter and stir until melted and well combined.
Dip bananas in the peanut butter-chocolate mixture and place on lined plate.
Place in freezer for several hours. If you don’t eat them all at one time!, then they can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for a few weeks. I bet you will be surprised at how much these taste like ice cream bon-bons! I think they even look like them…

An aside:
I got about 24 bites out of 3 bananas. If they are frozen solid, you will want to let them sit out for about 5 minutes before trying to bite into one…they get really hard!
