Want to make after-school snacks a breeze? These easy make-ahead peanutty bites are a nutritious option that kids can help make. They’re sure to make the freezer a popular after-school destination for tasty grab-and-go treats.


4 oz (115 g) bittersweet or milk chocolate, chopped

1 tbsp (15 mL) peanut butter

1 cup (250 mL) peanuts, finely chopped

2 large bananas, cut into 1½-inch (4-cm) pieces


Melt chocolate in the top of a double boiler or in the microwave, then stir in peanut butter.

Place peanuts in a wide, shallow dish. Roll 3 to 4 pieces of banana in the melted chocolate and peanut butter mixture, and stir to coat.

Remove bananas using a fork and place in the dish containing peanuts. Roll chocolate-covered bananas in peanuts and coat as best as you can. Once well coated, place bananas on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper.

Repeat with remaining bananas, re-melting the chocolate mixture if needed. Once complete, place in freezer.

Once frozen, store in a freezer bag or airtight container. Thaw for 8 to 10 minutes before eating, to ensure banana bites are frozen, but not rock hard.
