Peanut Butter Marshmallow Banana Sandwich with Chocolate Sauce

Growing up did your mom or dad ever have that one sandwich that they only made on special occasions, like if you were really really good that day?  Or that the day was just so incredibly nice that you just had to go out for a picnic?  Well this, is my mom's super special sandwich.

I looked forward to the days when the stars would align and she would make me her "favorite sandwich." As an adult I think we lose touch a lot of times on those special foods we ate as a child, they're more than comfort foods, they're time machines that take us back to when we were five sitting on a river bank watching the fish jump and the birds busily bustle about. We're often too busy to take the afternoon off and enjoy that special treat.

As a parent I know that I often feel like I'm in a rush to get this done, that fixed or get to so-and-so's appointment, which is also why moments like these are so important.  Let the health food restrictions slide for a day, after all, this sandwich does contain a full serving of protein, potassium and other minerals, not to mention that eating peanut butter in moderation promotes a healthy heart and reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes (Source: Harvard Health).

This sticky-gooey delight should be shared, and enjoyed, outdoors. I hope you enjoy more additions such as these to my Sinfully Delicious Summer Series.

Until next time.

Love Ya!

Peanut Butter Marshmallow Banana Sandwich with Chocolate Sauce

Ingredients

2 slices of bread
2-3 tablespoons peanut butter
1 generous scoop of marshmallow creme
1/2 banana, sliced
chocolate sauce, or syrup

Directions

Cover one side of both slices of bread with peanut butter, this keeps the bread from being soggy by the fruit and chocolate sauce, and also makes sure every bite has some peanut butter.
Spread the marshmallow creme on top of the peanut butter on one of the slices of bread.
Slice the banana and place in an even layer across the marshmallow creme.
Drizzle with chocolate sauce, and close the sandwich.
Enjoy, and don't forget the napkins.
