Ingredients for Banana Split Bites


Enjoy these banana split bites with whatever toppings sound good to you. Alongside the ripe fruits themselves, grab a jar of Cool Whip, maraschino cherries, milk chocolate or caramel, and sprinkles. Use whatever melting chocolate you have on hand, watching close as not to burn it while melting.

You can also get creative with other toppings like crushed nuts or crunchy candy bars. You might need some toothpicks too.


Freeze the bananas after dipping in chocolate and sprinkles to speed up the setting process and add a cold, hard texture to chocolate.

Customize the banana split bites with whatever sauces, toppings, and other additions that appeal to you.

Serve with vanilla ice cream for an extra filling treat that is especially refreshing in hot weather.

Consider what you love on a traditional banana split and get creative: this recipe can be made with any fruit, sauce, nut, candy, and sprinkles.

How To Make Banana Split Bites

Peel and cut bananas into 2-3 inch pieces. Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and let it melt in the microwave for 90 seconds, stirring each 30 seconds.

Using toothpicks or fingers, dip each banana piece about halfway into melted chocolate.

Immediately after dipping into chocolate, dip bananas into sprinkles so that it sticks, coating well with sprinkles or other toppings. Set bananas chocolate-side down on a lined plate or cutting board and let harden for about 15 minutes.

Pipe whipped topping onto banana pieces and top with maraschino cherry or other topping. Serve and enjoy!
