I’m blessed to have non picky eaters (knock on wood) who most of the time prefer fruits and veggies over any other “snack” items. My kids honestly think cut up fruit is dessert! But one of their favorite things is marshmallows. Yep, my kids can devour a bag of marshmallows in less than 5 mins! While I was trying to think of ways to mix up how we do s’mores, I thought…why not add some fruit? Maybe it’s just to make me feel a little better about there being SOMETHING healthy in their sweet treats. So I came up with this easy recipe for yummy S’mores Banana Bites.
S’mores Banana Bites
1 large banana, sliced into six chunks
6 regular size marshmallows, cut in half
1/2 cup crushed graham crackers
melting chocolate or milk chocolate chips
skewers or lollipop sticks
small baking sheet
Skewer one half of the marshmallow, the banana chunk and then the other half of marshmallow onto each stick. Place on a tray or cookie sheet covered with wax paper or parchment paper. Set to the side while you melt your chocolate in a shallow bowl. Melt your chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl or you can also do this over a double boiler on low to medium heat. In another bowl, place your graham cracker crumbs. Once your chocolate is melted, use a spoon, fork, or ziploc plastic bag with a hole in it to drizzle the melted chocolate over the skewered banana slices and marshmallow. Then give them a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs. Cover and place in fridge until ready to serve.

My kids thought these were so good, and because it’s a simple recipe they can even help skewer them! It was a perfect little sweet treat. I think these would be so fun for a birthday party snack or as something to take to a potluck barbecue this summer! It’s not a super healthy dessert, but there are ways to make these into more healthy banana s’mores bites. You can use dark chocolate or semisweet chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate. It will cut out some of the sugar and calories, but will still cure your sweet tooth. Another fun twist would be to add peanut butter drizzle along with the chocolate. Make sure you add this to your delicious dessert recipes, healthy recipes, or brunch recipes.
