I can’t stop snacking on these yummy frozen Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Bites. I have seen many versions in Magazines including Outside Magazine, but the one we like the most here at the Beach Bungalow is the Peanut Butter and Chocolate. They are so easy to make and so worth it! Did I mention they are healthier than ice cream?!
You will need: Bananas, Melting Chocolate and Peanut Butter
I was born and raised in Hershey PA, Chocolate Town USA and I love chocolate! My mom would often make chocolate pudding pie for us kids when I was growing up, it was a special treat for us all! So I am going to spread some chocolate love by sharing my recipe for the Best-Ever Chocolate Pudding Pie! This pie has a filling that is dairy and egg free and made with Hershey’s cocoa. To make it extra special it is topped with walnuts! You can top the pie with anything you want such as peanuts, walnuts, banana’s and/or whipped cream!
For the crust you will need one prepared pie shell to line your pie dish with.
Bake Pie Shell in your pie dish at 350 for 15 – 20 minutes until golden
Remove from oven and set aside.
For the Pudding use my easy recipe found here: http://wp.me/p2mJQm-4X
Double up the ingredients.
Pour the cooked pudding into the pie shell and allow to cool for 1 hour
Top with nuts
Cover and transfer to the refrigerator for several hours to chill.
I love pudding, especially chocolate, but I do not like off the shelf boxed pudding that contains additives and preservatives. This recipe has no eggs and no dairy and is so easy that you can whip this up in a just a few minutes. The recipe below makes 4 servings. Enjoy!
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa Powder (I like Hershey’s)
- 6 tbsp cornstarch
- 4 cups coconut milk, soy milk or rice milk
- 2 tbsp brewed coffee
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup sugar (or your favorite sugar substitute)
In medium sauce pan, whisk together the cocoa, sugar and cornstarch. Stir in the milk, vanilla and coffee. Bring to a boil over medium heat and stir for about 8 minutes, until mixture thickens.
Remove pan from heat and spoon pudding into small dishes and let cool at room temperature before serving. Top pudding with fruit, banana’s and or nuts. Or nothing at all!
