All Natural Recipe Contest Finalist #1: Nutty Chocolate Ice Cream Banana Sandwiches

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on September 29th, 2014


First, we’d like to thank everyone who submitted recipes in this year’s All Natural Recipe Contest. It was extremely difficult to narrow the entries down to just four finalists, but we managed to do it. We’ll feature each of the finalists here on the blog this week, starting with today’s entry, which is proof that sometimes the simplest recipes are the most delicious.

After all four finalists are posted on the blog, we’ll open up the polls on Friday, where your votes will determine which recipe will take home the grand prize — a one year supply of Turkey Hill Ice Cream!

NUTTY CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM BANANA SANDWICHES

DESCRIPTION: A delicious take on the classic s’more made with All Natural Chocolate Ice Cream and All Natural Vanilla Ice Cream.

SUBMITTED BY: Madelyn D. of Tamaqua, PA

4 scoops of Turkey Hill All Natural Vanilla Ice Cream
2 bananas, cut in slices
4 tbsp. whipped peanut butter
Handful of chopped peanuts
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp. shortening

DIRECTIONS

In a small bowl, mix peanut butter and chopped peanuts. Set aside.

For the chocolate drizzle: Place chocolate chips and shortening in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at medium for 30 seconds or until melted. Mix together. Set aside.

Assemble: Place one scoop of Turkey Hill’s All Natural Vanilla Ice Cream onto one graham cracker. Place 1/4 of the sliced bananas on top of the vanilla ice cream.

Place another graham cracker on top to complete the sandwich.

Using a spoon, lightly drizzle chocolate mixture over the sandwich (as much as desired).
