“Now here’s the story of a wealthy family who lost everything, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together. It’s…….”

The 4th season of Arrested Development!!!!! Finally being released on Netflix this Sunday night at midnight!

My friends and I are going to pretend like we’re college students and stay up all night to watch. Bring on the coffee!

Seriously, though, after years and years of rumors about a reunion, I am ridiculously excited to be reunited with the Michael, George Michael, Tobias, Lindsey, Maebe, G.O.B., Buster, and my favorite character ever – Lucille, who would probably think that these salted chocolate frozen banana bites cost about $200. Love the Bluths!!!

So today, a group of my blogger friends and I are celebrating all things Arrested Development with our own “arresting” recipes. I of course had to pay tribute to the famous banana stand. (“There’s always money in the banana stand!”) But instead of awkward chocolate frozen bananas, I decided to go with some slightly cuter “bites”, covered in dark chocolate magic shell and sprinkled with a little coarse sea salt. I have to admit these were my first time to try actual frozen bananas, and they are surprisingly good!! There’s something about the texture that gets perfectly sweet and chewy when they are frozen that my friends and I loved!!! Maybe the Bluths were onto something…

Be sure to check out my friends’ recipes, listed below, and tune in on Netflix this weekend for the big premiere!!! I can’t wait!

Salted Chocolate Frozen Banana Bites

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: About 15 banana bites



Cut the bananas into your desired size of bites. (Mine were about 1 inch long.) Place on a foil- or parchment-covered baking sheet. Then poke them with the cocktail forks. Freeze for at least 2 hours or until frozen.

Remove and dip each banana in the magic shell until covered. (You can dip all the way, or just halfway.) Sprinkle with sea salt and place back on cold baking sheet until dried.

Serve immediately or re-freeze.

  14. Sounds Fun! Shout out if you want some more company. There have been about 5 people who have denied that I have a pulse when I say that I’ve never seen it. And since a pulse is necessary for survival, I’m thinking I’d better be checking this show out pretty darn soon.Otherwise I will find a way to watch it up here. Have a blest!

  21. Ha, I was just listening to this issue on the radio today, seemingly the show is filmed in Newport Beach not far from me and the mayor wants a banana booth put there where the original used to be, frozen bananas sound downright awesome!

    - Gerry @ Foodness Gracious

  22. These are so cute! What a tasty little treat!

    - Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love.

  23. I have been meaning to make chocolate covered bananas for a while now. I was covering cupcakes in melted chocolate earlier this week… but used all of the chocolate (and then the last time I didn’t have bananas on hand).

    Did you notice the salt with the bananas? I was planning on using sprinkles…

    - Alley @ Alley's Recipe Book

  24. Oh Ali, I’ve been trying to come up with a fun spin on the Bluth banana for this weekend. I think you hit the nail on the head. Love it!!

    - Annalise

  25. I made something similar last summer, and oh my stars… They were the best little snacks! Love your salted caramel twist in this recipe!

    - Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking

  26. At last something to use the bag full of cocktail forks I’ve aquired over the years! These look absolutely “obsence” and I can’t wait to try them! You forgot to mention the recipe is no doubt calorie free and low sodium as in how could anything that looks so good be bad for you? Right…
