  • Bananas: use ripe sweet bananas for the best flavor. 
  • Peanut Butter: creamy peanut butter works best so we can melt it down and pour on top but you can use cashew butter, sunflower seed butter, almond butter or your favorite but butter. 
  • Peanuts: for the crunch layer! 
  • Chocolate Chips: switch with dark chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, or white chocolate, butterscotch chips or whatever your heart desires.
  • Coconut Oil: this helps melt the chocolate chips and make them have that perfect magic hardening shell. 

Dietary Modifications

  • Gluten-free, as is, just make sure your chocolate chips are gluten-free.
  • Dairy-free if using dairy-free chocolate chips.

Place in the freezer for 4-6 hours until frozen solid. Once frozen remove from the container using the overlapping parchment paper. Cut into 6 equal bars. 

Step 3: add chocolate coating

Add the chocolate chips and coconut oil to a shallow mixing bowl and microwave to melt. Start with 30 seconds and then 15-20 second increments after that, until completely melted (image 4). Mix in between each interval, to prevent burning.

Place a banana bar into the melted chocolate and cover it completely (image 5). Transfer to a parchment-lined baking tray and repeat with all 6 bars and top with flakey sea salt.

Step 4: quick freeze to harden and enjoy

Return to a flat section of the freezer and enjoy once the chocolate is solid (image 6) which does not take long.

Expert Tip!

If you want to see thick layers, freeze the banana layer and top with peanut butter and peanuts and then freeze again before adding the chocolate.

Recipe FAQs

How to store these frozen banana Snickers?

Store in an airtight container or freezer bag in the freezer for up to 7 days.

How can you get layers?

If you want true layers, you’ll need to add an extra freezing time. Prepare the banana mixture and freeze. Remove and top with the peanut butter and peanut and refreeze. Then coat with the chocolate. No need to do this though just swirl in the peanut butter to the top of the banana mixture.

Why does the chocolate get thick while coating?

If you’re dipping something frozen into something melted it is going to try to harden it! Just reheat the chocolate if needed!

Why isn’t my chocolate melting?

If you have a clump of chocolate you need to keep warming it until it’s melted. This takes a little while but it comes together.

Notes

  • Nutritional information is an estimate and will vary with substitutions. 
  • Use ripe bananas to ensure the sweetest flavor.
  • Line your freezer safe container with parchment paper to make removal of the snickers bars easier. If you forget to do this you can just run hot water on the bottom until you can pop it out. If you run too much hot water and it melts just stick it back in the freezer to harden real quick. 
  • Excess chocolate coating has been taken into account in the nutrition facts!
