To a small saucepan over low-heat, melt the chocolate chips. Stirring as they melt.Microwave: Add chocolate chips to a medium, microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until melted.
Melt coconut oil in a microwave-safe dish for 10-15 seconds. Remove and combine with peanut butter.
Serve garnished with coarse sea salt and shaved chocolate, if desired.Best if stored frozen. Will keep up to 1 month in the freezer. When ready to enjoy, simply remove from the freezer and let sit for 2-3 minutes before indulging.
I find it best to add these bites to mini cupcake liners and freezing them within a mini cupcake pan. I find that it helps to keep its shape if confined.
If you don't have mini cupcake liners and the mini cupcake pan, then you can simply dip a peanut butter (minus the coconut oil) topped banana slice into the chocolate, place onto a piece of parchment paper to solidify, and top with hazelnuts.
These keep best frozen. Simply remove one from the freezer when ready to indulge and allow to sit for 2-3 minutes before sinking your teeth into it.
If you don't have coconut oil, simply omit and spread the peanut butter over the top of the banana slice before adding it to the liner. Then top with more chocolate.
