Frozen Banana Peanut Butter Bites

When eaten frozen, these seem like ice cream treats. 
Slice a banana and make cute little banana peanut butter sandwiches.  Lay them on wax paper and freeze. 

We dipped these in almond bark but chocolate chips or other chocolate melting discs would work.  The first few we dipped like candy in the chocolate and the hot to cold on the bark made it get hard in the pan like it was tempered.  To solve that problem, we left them on the pan we froze them on and put a dollop of chocolate on each one then flipped them over and put a dollop on the other side so the chocolate met in the middle of the sides of  the bananas. If each side of the chocolate didn't touch the chocolate popped off like a button because as soon as the chocolate hit the banana it was hard almost instantly.  Doing it this way actually made it less work to coat them. 
Keep these in the freezer for a little pick me up snack during the day.  Careful though, they will call to you through the closed door!
