PB&J Banana Bites

Enjoy this delicious twist on the classic PB & J as an after-school snack or in anyone’s lunch box. 


1.  Slice banana into 1/4-inch thick coins, discard the ends.                                                                                      

2.  Take a banana chip and spread about 1 teaspoon of peanut butter onto it.  On another banana chip spread 1 teaspoon of jelly and sandwich the two pieces so that the peanut butter and jelly touch.  Place finished sandwiches on a parchment line sheet tray.                                                                    

3.  Pour the entire bag of chocolate morsels into a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals until chocolate is melted and is smooth. Add butter to the chocolate and mix until incorporated.                                                                                                     

4.  While the chocolate is warm, dip half the banana sandwich into chocolate and return to sheet tray.  Repeat with the remaining bananas.  Sprinkle crushed pretzels onto chocolate dipped bananas and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
