Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Sandwich

Today is National Peanut Butter Day. To celebrate, you can eat some out of the jar--chunky, smooth, organic.  Or you can make this scrumptious Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Sandwich.

Peanut butter and Banana sandwiches are great but adding chocolate makes this sandwich even better. Follow the adapted recipe below from the Vosges website for a Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Sandwich. It's easy and one of my favorites--maybe because I love the Vosges Organic Peanut Butter Bonbon Bar. To make this great sandwich, use a panini press, a skillet, a waffle iron or your clothing iron. Whatever you have. Who doesn't love a grilled sandwich?

Some alternatives if you don't have the Vosges Peanut Butter Bonbon Bar would be to use a few Reese's Peanut butter cups. Not the same quality, but delicious all the same! Or you can use Peanut Butter & Co's Dark Chocolate Dreams.  It's a wonderful organic product and has a place in your pantry or fridge.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Sandwich

Ingredients
2 white bread slices (soft sweet sourdough or Italian white bread) about 4-5 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick
2 tbsp Sea salted butter (or make your own by mixing 1/2 tsp sea salt and 2 tbsp of a fabulous sweet butter-or leave the salt off since there's salt in the Vosges Peanut Butter Bonbon Bar)
2 squares Vosges Organic Peanut Butter Bonbon Bar
1/2  banana, sliced

Directions
Spread butter on all sides of the bread.
Place peanut butter bar squares on one piece of bread, followed by sliced banana and a sprinkle of salt.
Place other piece of buttered bread on top/
Press with Panini press until golden brown.
