Prep Time: 15 mins Cook Time: 0 mins Makes: 24


When you need a quick bite that everyone can enjoy, try making a chocolate chip, peanut butter, and banana sandwich. Just listing the ingredients will make your tastebuds happy! The combination of the peanut butter, honey, cinnamon, and banana make for a delightfully delicious experience, while the mini chocolate chips add just a little crunch. This combination of fruit, honey, and peanut butter packs a nice boost in energy. It feels more like an indulgent snack instead of a sandwich and is sure to satisfy even picky eaters.


Who Can Help?

Kids of all ages can help to mix the ingredients and spread the peanut butter mixture on the bread. Older children can help by peeling and slicing the bananas, and placing the banana slices on top of the peanut butter mixture to build the sandwich.


(Put in color box) Bonus Tip: This is a fun sandwich to cut into shapes with cookie cutters. If you are headed to the park or zoo, try cutting into an animal shape!


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whipped light cream cheese

  • 2 teaspoons strawberry preserves

  • 1 quart large strawberries (about 24)

  • 48 mini chocolate chips

  • blueberries

  • raspberries

  • blackberries

  • pineapples, cut into small shapes

  • toothpicks

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the cream cheese and preserves. Spoon the mixture into a plastic sandwich bag and snip off one corner to create a mini piping bag.

  2. Slice off the top or bottom of each strawberry to create a flat surface so that the strawberry will stand on it's own.

  3. Slice a notch out of the strawberry near the top and fill the notch with the cream cheese mixture.

  4. Press 2 mini chocolate chips into the cream cheese to create eyes.

  5. Press 1 or 2 toothpicks into the top of the strawberries and skewer with the remaining berries and pineapples to create antenna.
