Nutella and Bananas

| July 20, 2007 | 3 Comments

A lot can be said about the power of suggestion. It’s amazing how an iota of innuendo can lead to big things. And it’s amazing how, for a pregnant woman, the power of suggestion can lead to an necessary but delicious dessert.

Last night, I was innocently sitting here in my home office working when a good (pregnant) friend of mine came on and inquired what sort of chocolate concoction she should buy or make. I instantly thought of the delicious Happy Hippos that Virtual Frolic gave me. Okay, truth be told, I was already salivating about them . . . but that is besides the point. Anyway, somehow that whole train of thought and description led into me suggesting a Nutella and banana sandwich on toasted bread.

No, I have absolutely no clue where the connection came from (other than the Happy Hippo filling being somewhat like Nutella). In any case, it was every bit as good as I imagined it would be. It was so chocolate and banana-y.


There is no recipe for this one. Just toast two slices of bread, spread generously with Nutella on one side of each slice, layer with banana slices and put together. Cut it all in half and enjoy.

Now see how easy (and tasty) that was?!?

    VF – Mmmm, I sure hope there are more hippos in my future. Those were sooooo good (loved the olive oil too. Wow, that stuff is great. Even my mother could taste the difference. Haven’t broken into the olives yet though, on account of the shaky situation with the fridge.

    Kristen, lol. Thanks! I have been fighting the urge to do it again too (only because I am never home for lunch and don’t want to overeat!).
