Go Bananas and Go Nuts at the Same Time

Hello friends! Ryan (aka lil bae) has started sifting through my Pinterest boards and finding yummy things that he wants me to make for him, and this was one of them. I haven’t thought of a good name for them yet, but they’re essentially little peanut butter and banana sandwiches, and then we dipped them in dark chocolate. unnamed-3

Get your pens and notepads out because we’re going to talk about a grocery list:

Bananas 4-6 (we used six and it made a decent amount)

About 1/2 cups of peanut butter

Dark chocolate (or whatever suits your fancy)

Wax paper (we used tinfoil because we didn’t have any wax, and it sufficed, but I would recommend wax paper)

Once you have all your supplies, the first thing to do is slice up those bananas (this was Ryan’s job while I made real-food for dinner). He sliced them and laid about half on a baking sheet. To make the peanut butter easier to spread, he scooped some into a ziplock, and pushed it all to one corner and then snipped the end to make a makeshift piping bag. This worked out well and he squirted a little dollop on each banana, then topped them with another slice.

Throw those little guys in the freezer, and wait about an hour. We watched two episodes of How I Met Your Mother and then couldn’t wait any longer. Leave them in the freezer while you melt your chocolate, they’re a lot easier to dip when they’re frozen because they stick together nicer. If you find the sandwiches getting mushy and falling apart in the chocolate, pop them back in the freezer for a few minutes. We found that a fork worked best for dipping if you kind of hold the sandwiches on the fork (not what Ryan is doing in the picture, he’s new), dunk them, then pick them back up and your can tap off the excess chocolate and let it run off. (I hope that makes sense)

Once they’re all covered, throw them back in the freezer for another episode and then they’re ready to be devoured.

As far as storage goes, if you keep them in the freezer, they’ll last longer but you’ll have to let them “thaw” for a few minutes before eating them. We kept them in the fridge for their short lives and that seemed to work out well. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
