Summer is officially over. (So are my 20’s, but that is a post for another day).
I’m going to be completely honest, I have never been so ready for fall. For whatever reason, this summer was *so so* crazy. We were all over the place in 1,000 different directions and I’m just ready for the structure of fall. (I’m just a little type A). I’m also ready and excited to be working less, spending more time with my kiddos and photographing more…hopefully blogging more as well. Good.Bye.Summer.
Tomorrow is the first day of school for Springfield, so I thought I would post a back to school snack that kids would be happy to come home to.
Chocolate Covered Banana Bites
makes 7 bites
1 large banana
2 1/2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons light corn syrup
Slice banana into about 14 pieces. Spread peanut butter on one side of a banana slice and sandwich in between two slices. Sit on wax paper and place in freezer for 30 minutes. While bananas are in the freezer, prepare chocolate. In a double boiler combine chocolate chips, butter, and corn syrup. Stir until chips are melted and mixture is smooth, then add vanilla. Drizzle chocolate over banana bites, then place back in the freezer. Before serving remove from freezer for 5 to 10 minutes. Enjoy!
