Easy! Chocolate Banana bites #healthysnack

Do all kids come home from school starving? Mine surely does! She eats snack after snack in the afternoon, and then (of course) she does not want dinner. I am trying my best to come up with yummy snacks that she can get excited about, but that will also fill her up so she can wait a couple hours until dinner.

Bananas are a fantastic snack because they are sweet and high in potassium, plus bananas release energy slowly. Amelia thinks bananas are only for breakfast, however, so getting her to eat one after school is a challenge.

Insert chocolate here. Chocolate makes everything better, right?! 

Chocolate covered bananas are delicious, but I do not want the mess and time required to melt and dip. Do you know what works pretty well? Magic Shell! Not the healthiest chocolate treat in the world, but in moderation I have no issue with it.

Slice bananas, arrange on a plate
Pour Magic Shell over the bananas to coat the tops. 
Optional: add some sprinkles for color and crunch.
Place plate in freezer for 5-6 minutes.

 That's it! Cold, refreshing, filling, and tasty chocolate banana bites without any mess or cooking.
