Dark Chocolate Football Bites

Football Tablescape

I snagged this recipe from Daina Falk’s The Hungry Fan’s Game Day Cookbook.  I love Daina’s recipes because they truly are perfect for game day and the tailgate. And here’s the thing about these…they’re SO easy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas
  • 1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 8 oz. dark chocolate
  • 4 oz. white chocolate

Preparation: 

  1. Slice the bananas into 40 1/4-inch thick rounds.
  2. Using a spoon, top 20 of the banana rounds with a small dollop of peanut butter.  Top each with another banana slice to make 20 banana peanut butter sandwiches.
  3. Freeze for a minimum of 2 hours.
  4. Once they are frozen, melt the dark chocolate until smooth.
  5. Using a fork, dip the band sandwiches into the chocolate, coating them on all sides.  Set them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. (Here the original recipe calls for topping them with salt crystals if you prefer).
  6. I refroze them for another 30 mins. or so and then pulled them out and melted white chocolate in a glass measuring cup.  I poured the white chocolate in a small ziplock bag and cut the tiniest hole at the tip.  Finally, I piped on the laces to make them look like footballs.
  7. Put them back in the freezer until you’re ready to serve.  Serve Frozen.
  8. Enjoy!

*Daina’s recipe calls for bittersweet dark chocolate, but I think you could dip these in milk, white or whatever your preference is.  I did straight dark chocolate and loved it!

**The serve ware is all football-themed and can be found here.
