From the Kitchen - Outside the Nest

Nutty Nannabutter Bites

They're cool. They're creamy. They're crunchy.
Kids and adults love them.

Let's start with the bananas. Slice them into nice slices.

Then dollup a bit of peanut butter between two slices,
jab a toothpick through them, put them in a container.
This is a bit messy, which is why I don't have a picture of me spreading the peanut butter between the slices. Pop the container in the freezer.

Ok, after they have been chillin' in the freezer for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours, remove and dip in melted chocolate.

I found this at my local grocer. It worked well. 
I did 2 medium bananas with it, and had a bit left over. Melting chocolate baking chips will work as well.

A quick plunge into chopped peanuts.

Then it's back into the freezer for another 2 hours, and then, commence to tasting.

I love being on the taste-testing panel of judges.
I give this recipe a. . . . . 10.
Home run! Score! 
As in, are they ever good.
May all your dippin' be happy dippin'.

Nutty Nannabutter Bites

2-3 medium bananas
Peanut butter
1 C milk, semi-sweet, or dark chocolate baking chips
1-2 Tsp butter or shortening
1/4 C chopped peanuts

Peel bananas, slice into 1/4 inch slices. Spread peanut butter between 2 slices, push a toothpick through both slices to keep them together. Place them in a covered container lined with waxed paper and freeze 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Melt baking chips. Add enough butter to thin to a dipping consistency. Dip bananas in chocolate and then dip bottoms in chopped nuts. Return to freezer, freeze additional 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Keep leftovers in freezer. If frozen longer than 2 hours, you may wish to let sit at room temperature for a few minutes before eating.
