Chocolate Banana Bites

I’m not going to lie, the only reason I’m writing about this recipe is so I remember to make them again!  Definitely not an original idea, but boy is it a good one!

You need…

Large bananas (I used 3)

Chocolate Chips

Peanut Butter

Melt the chocolate and peanut butter together until creamy (use whatever proportions taste good to YOU!) I had some taste testing help :)

Cut the bananas into largish chunks, and dip into your chocolate mixture

Lay chunks on parchment paper and freeze.

I also made some, and put them in the fridge.  The chocolate was hard, but the bananas were just cold instead of frozen.  Your preference!

Snack and enjoy :)

Peppermint Bark

I’ve made a lot of easy recipes in my life, but let me tell you, this is the easiest!  And since a tiny bag of peppermint bark is selling for $12 at the store, it’s definitely worth it!  JoyofBaking has an easy and tasty recipe with a little cooking video.  I’ll sum it up though, since the video is 10 minutes long and its only three steps.

You need…

– Dark Chocolate (<70% cocoa, higher is too bitter)

– White Chocolate (check the back and make sure it says cocoa butter – not olive oil or some other substitute)

– Candy canes

Put the candy canes in a bag (or your food processor) and break them up.

Melt your dark chocolate in the microwave or on the stove.  Add 1 tsp of tasteless oil (keeps the chocolate shiny).  Pour the dark chocolate into your pan. Laying down aluminum foil makes it easier to get the chocolate out at the end (forgot that step though!).  Put your pan + chocolate in the fridge until hard (30+ mins).

Repeat the same steps for the white chocolate, but BEFORE you put it in the fridge, sprinkle the peppermint crumbles on top.

After it’s completely hard, break or cut into pieces and enjoy!
