We found that the peanut butter made the banana very slippery and sometimes the cookies got crushed. So if you use peanut butter you might want to put thinner slices of banana and skip the squeezing the two cookies together.
- 2 bananas
- 24 vanilla wafers
- 1 chocolate bar
- Peanut butter - optional
- A small microwaveable bowl
- A cutting board or plate
- Put the chocolate bar in the bowl and melt it in the microwave.Try doing 20 seconds at first. If it doesn't seem to melt, try another 10 seconds.
- Lay the vanilla wafers on a cutting board or plate.
- Spread a thin layer of chocolate on half the wafers and let the chocolate cool. We put a little too much on ours and we couldn't taste the vanilla wafers.
- Put the 12 chocolate covered wafers into one plastic sandwich bag and the plain ones into another bag.
- When getting ready to go, place the bananas where they won't get squished - like at the very top of the picnic basket or shopping bag.
- When you get to the picnic, peel the bananas and slice them into 1-inch chunks. You can use a plastic knife for this job.
- Take a chocolate covered vanilla wafer and put the banana chunk on it.
- Dab a little peanut butter on the other wafer and put on top of the banana.
- Gently squeeze the two wafers together until the banana smooshes out of the sides and looks like an ice cream sandwich.
