Tips And Tricks

Use a high quality chocolate chip for best results, I really like Hu Kitchen.

Opt for bananas that are yellow but have just ripened. Too soft of a banana will be too mushy for this recipe.

If you don’t want to use the silicon molds, feel free to use mini cup cake liners or just place them on a baking sheet.

How To Serve And Store

Serve these Banana Snickers once the chocolate is firm enough to handle.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge or the freezer and enjoy up to 30 days.

Taste And Texture

These Banana Snickers have a chocolate outer shell. If frozen, these are a bit firm but delicious once you bite into. They taste like a chocolate covered banana but with crunchy peanuts.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use a different type of nut if i’m allergic?

Yes, you can use sunflower seed butter or oat butter and just opt out of the nuts.

What other toppings can I add in?

Coconut, diced almonds, pepitas, walnuts, etc!

Are these best stored in the fridge or freezer?

I prefer mine in the fridge so they are easier to eat, but you can also freeze them!
