Banana Bites

 I've heard of chocolate dipped bananas, I've even tried them out before, but I decided to make these in bitesize, and I think this is my favorite version yet because there is a perfect banana/chocolate ratio. 
 These were really easy to make.  I cute a banana in half. 
 I used the large side of a melon baller to put out three balls from each halve of the banana. 
 After each ball was pulled out, I sliced off the flesh to pull out the next ball.
 I melted up some chocolate (1 minute at 30 second intervals, stir and repeat).  And then I dipped each banana into the chocolate. 


I placed these in the freezer on wax paper to let the chocolate harden.  These would also be good on ice cream sundaes.

@ Patti-You could keep these for a good week as long as you just store them in the freezer in an airtight container, just bring them out when you are ready to serve and let them get to room temp, or eat them like ice cream.
