I was recently given a free subscription to Better Homes and Gardens. Flipping through my first issue (August 2013) I came across these great little treats. Frozen banana slices filled with peanut butter, dipped in chocolate and topped with a salty peanut half or some sea salt. Cool, creamy, salty and sweet – this treat hits all the right notes and is a fairly guilt-free little snack.
They aren’t too hard to make – slice up some bananas (try to get them more even than I did) and freeze the slices. Sandwich two slices with peanut butter, it doesn’t take much. Re-freeze them and then dip in melted chocolate. If desired, top with a half of a salted peanut or sprinkle with some sea salt. I think these would also be good sandwiched with nutella, Biscoff spread or maybe even some jam.
