I love these adorable desserts.
Does it get any cuter than these chocolate dipped banana bites?
They are a perfect dessert especially
for kids. They can be made in about 10 minutes and do not require baking! Depending on the color sprinkles that you choose, you can make them patriotic in red, white, and blue or to match any theme.( Check that your sprinkles are gluten free)
Follow my simple recipe, which just calls for dipping in chocolate, rolling in sprinkles, and topping with whipped cream. ( see recipe for vegan coconut whipped cream below) Or you can try scooping out a little of the banana and filling it with ice cream.
Make These Simple Dessert With Kids
Making these banana split bites is a fun project to make with kids. Kids love to make desserts like brownies, cookies, and cupcakes. This is a fun addition that you can add to your repertoire. The best part is you won't even have to turn on your oven.

Wait to remove peel just before you dip the bottom of the banana in melted chocolate chips and then sprinkles and place on waxed paper on cookie sheet. Place in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes so the chocolate can become firm.

Cat Davis at Dessert for Nine posted these Banana Split Bites and filled them with ice cream.
I have to admit, her photo and recipe looked amazing; mine looks well like... "homemade fun."
I have to give you Cat's link so you can see how fabulous her recipe looked.
Use firm bananas for best results.
