Spotty Dotty Banana Bites

Messy to make but delicious to eat - a great dessert or afternoon snack.


  • 2 regular Dole bananas
  • One 250 ml tub of spreadable cream cheese (you will have some left over)
  • One 200-250 g bag of chocolate chips or pieces


  1. Peel and then cut each banana into 6 pieces.
  2. Pour the chocolate pieces into a cereal bowl.

Now the messy bit

  1. Have a large plate ready for your bites, and a piece of paper towel ready for your hands.
  2. Work with one piece at a time.
  3. With a small knife or spoon, spread the cream cheese over all the surfaces of the banana.
  4. Now roll the cheese-covered banana in the bowl of chocolate chips until completely coated. Place on your plate.
  5. When all the pieces are on the plate, put them in the fridge for half an hour to firm.

For something different - you can make these bites using smooth peanut butter or hazelnut spread instead of cream cheese.
