Super Spicy Chocolate Banana Bites with Gourmet Pumpkin SuperSeedz
Add some spice to your next cocktail party. Sure, you will be serving a cheese platter and some type of charcuterie. But also give your guests something unexpected. A fruity-sweet-spicy option on the buffet.
Super spicy chocolate covered banana bites with pumpkin seeds will blow them way. This little snack-on-a-stick is absolutely not for kids. The chocolate and pumpkin seeds are indeed super spicy.
SuperSeedz is an innovative snack company that has reimagined the pumpkin seed – adding flavors like cocoa, cinnamon & sugar, cayenne, curry, and more.
Dry roasted in small batches without the shell, they have redefined the traditional plain pumpkin seed into a variety of creative flavors that provide a healthy, nutritious standalone snack.
Standalone, absolutely, they rock. But cooks like me will also be inspired to give them a try in all sorts of recipes.
By the way, my banana bites are not frozen. As adults, let’s enjoy our cocktails and keep our teeth happy without having to bite into something frozen solid as a rock.
It really is super spicy…sweet & savory. And quite healthful too. One perfect bite on a stick. Irresistible.
SuperSeedz describes their Super Spicy Gourmet Pumpkin Seeds, “Some like it hot, which is why we made sure Super Spicy not only has a kick, but may even leave a mark. Garlic, sea salt, cayenne, black pepper, habanero, red crushed pepper. Is that steam coming out of your ears?”
Which is why I decided to run with their theme. That is no ordinary dark chocolate covering the banana. It is chili chocolate, melted with cayenne pepper. Is it hot enough yet?
Chili Chocolate Banana Bites

Melt chocolate with cayenne in a double boiler. Meanwhile, slice bananas into bite sized pieces. Place banana bites on a platter. Spoon melted chocolate over the top of the bananas, letting some chocolate drip down the sides. Insert half a straw into the middle of the banana. Arrange pumpkin seeds on top of the chocolate. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes to harden the chocolate. Serve immediately.
Now, go ahead, have another.
I dare you.
The adults can’t have all the fun. Here are a few more banana bites that everyone will absolutely love! (The procedure is the same for all flavors).
