Frozen Snickers Banana Bites [Vegan]

by - August 06, 2017

I am so happy with how these frozen snickers inspired banana bites turned out! The caramel is so wonderful I could eat it straight out of the bowl, frozen banana is the perfect natural ice cream, and the chocolate cover with peanut on top gives the perfect crunch and indulgent feeling to the bites. These could also be served room temperature, but I wouldn't freeze them and then completely thaw them as the banana will become kinda soggy. 

1 banana
8-10 dates
2 tsp natural peanut butter
80g dark chocolate
A handful peanuts

Remove the pits from the dates and mash them with a fork. Add in the peanut butter and mix together. 
Slice the banana into thick slices and add a teaspoon of the date mixture on top of each banana slice. Put them in the freezer for a bit to make it easier to cover them in chocolate later. 
Roughly chop the peanuts and melt the dark chocolate. You can either do this in the microwave or by placing a bowl into a pot of simmering water and add the chocolate to the bowl. Make sure no water gets in the bowl, stirr continuously and don’t let it get too hot as chocolate can burn and get hard and clumpy. 
Remove the banana bites from the freezer and dip each one into the chocolate, covering them completely. Sprinkle some peanuts on top. 
When you've covered all your bites, put them back in the freezer for a while and then they are ready to serve. A tip is to let them thaw for a few minutes before eating :)
