HOW TO MAKE

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. This will prevent the banana from sticking to the sheet and make for easy removal later.
  2. Cut up bananas into 1 inch slices and add to prepared baking sheet. Make sure all banana slices are touching.
  3. Cover with another piece of parchment paper. Using the bottom of a glass, press down on banana pieces so they become one layer.
  4. Add melted peanut butter over the banana layer and add to freezer for 30 minutes until hardened.
  5. In a microwave-safe bowl or using a double boiler, melt the dark chocolate or semisweet chocolate until it becomes smooth and glossy. Stir occasionally to ensure even melting. Add in the coconut oil.
  6. Once the banana and peanut butter layer have hardened, add the melted chocolate over top. Sprinkle with course sea salt and add back to freezer to harden again.
  7. Once solidified, break up the chocolate peanut butter banana bark into pieces. Enjoy!

HOW TO STORE

  1. After breaking the Chocolate Banana Bark into pieces, transfer them to an airtight container. Ensure that the container is clean and dry to prevent moisture from affecting the bark’s texture.
  2. To prevent the pieces from sticking together, you can place a sheet of parchment paper between the layers of Chocolate Banana Bark in the container.
  3. For long-term storage, you can freeze the candy bark. Wrap individual pieces or clusters in plastic wrap and place them in an airtight container or a freezer-safe bag. This will extend the shelf life to several months. When you’re ready to consume, let sit at room temperature for a few minutes to thaw slightly.

FAQS

CAN I USE MILK CHOCOLATE INSTEAD OF DARK CHOCOLATE IN THIS RECIPE?

Absolutely! You can use milk chocolate or semisweet chocolate if you prefer a sweeter taste. Dark chocolate tends to be a bit less sweet, so choose the one that suits your preference.

CAN I MAKE THIS EASY RECIPE WITH DIFFERENT TOPPINGS?

Yes, you can get creative with the toppings. Feel free to use your favorite nuts, dried fruits, or even sprinkles for a colorful twist. The possibilities are endless!

CAN I MAKE THIS RECIPE VEGAN AND GLUTEN FREE?

Certainly! You can use dairy-free or vegan chocolate, such as dark chocolate chips made with dairy-free ingredients. Ensure that all other ingredients, including the toppings, are also dairy-free.

CAN I STORE THE PEANUT BUTTER BARK IN THE FREEZER FOR A LONG TIME?

Yes, Chocolate Banana Bark can be stored in the freezer for several months if properly wrapped and stored in an airtight container or freezer bag.

IS THIS A HEALTHY SNACK?

Chocolate Banana Bark, while delicious, is more of a sweet treat than a healthy snack. It does contain the natural sweetness of bananas and can be customized with healthier toppings like nuts and dried fruits, but the chocolate base and potential addition of candy toppings make it more indulgent.

The chocolate bark does make a great alternative to indulgent desserts.
