    I saw this recipe online tonite, and it looked delicious, healthy, and easy to make. I wasn't sure which topic to put it in, but I am thinking that right here is a great place.
    I will post the picture with directions, but the basic idea is banana slices, filled with peanut butter, and dipped in chocolate. It should be easy to do, and fun for children to help out with, and of course, an enjoyable treat for them as well.

    Oh wow! That does look easy to do and kids would love this! There's less prep-time just cutting, scooping, and pouring.

    MMmm! Thanks for posting this. I love to cook with the kids I watch...and I think this might very well be something they'll enjoy!! I like the idea of a variety of fillings, too, even though chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite combo!

    Yes, I think the possibility for fillings is open to ones imagination. I was thinking, maybe a little strawberry jam along with the peanut butter, or orange marmalade, or even some of that chocolate Nutella instead of peanut butter, with or without a bit of jam.
    Cream cheese with a little jam or honey in it would also be delicious with the banana and chocolate topping.
    Next trip to the store, I will be getting some bananas and chocolate, and testing this recipe out.

    I had to read this on the one day I didn't have any bananas in the house. Well, a quick trip to the store will fix that. Maybe tomorrow!

    If you used different fillings; could you not also substitute different fruit? Frozen slices of apple, kiwi or strawberries, for example? Pineapple, perhaps? It's a great way to help children get their 5-a-day fruit servings, especially if they're fussy eaters like most children I know!

    Thanks for posting this! :D Bookmarked! hehe..

    Oh wow this looks yummy! I will have to try it with the kiddos. I am sure they will love it. Bananas, peanut butter and chocolate are all favorites in this household.

    Magnificent idea to make with the kiddies! A sweet treat that also is healthy and looks yummy to boot. I am going to try this immediately with my grandson, as he is nuts about all of the ingredients. I have got to pass this on to some friends who I just know will flip over it.

    I have done a recipe similar to this using ritz crackers with peanut butter and dipping in white chocolate. But I do love the banana idea and am definately going to try it.

    Those look very tasty! I might give them a go myself, even though I'd probably make them myself rather than with children. The only child I have to bake with whenever I want is my 8-year-old brother but he doesn't like peanut butter, so I'm not sure he'd be keen. All the more for me. ;)

    Those are adorable! I'm not a fan of peanut butter, but I'm thinking a "caramel" made with medjool dates in the middle. Yummy! Thanks :)

    Those look fun to make and somewhat healthy. When my teen and I find another apartment, I might make these with her. Thanks for sharing.
