Tis true! This is my favorite flavor combination in the whole world. There used to be a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream flavor that highlighted this combination. I’m on a crusade for them to bring it back. It was called Monkey Wrenched, and it was delicious! I guess my occasional purchase of the before mentioned ice cream just didn’t cut it for Ben and Jerry’s. I think I’ll write a letter to the editor the bring it back. I wonder if it will work. My prayers for the Chocolate Twizzlers to return to their origanal form were answered. Maybe the Monkey Wrenched prayers need to be offered:) Just imagine peanut butter ice cream swirled with banana ice cream and then a generous sprinkling of chocolate chunks, and peanut butter cups were intertwined. It was just delish!
So the other day when I saw a pin on Pinterest for a PB and chocolate Banana Bread I pinned it. My Jimmy may have actually persuaded my to pin it, but I’m glad he did. He loves to look over my shoulder as I browse Pinterest. He may think he doesn’t pin, but let me just say……….he totally does. I believe that’s another reason I like him. I think Jimmy and Darin Adams are the only male Pinterest people on the planet. I decided to not even mess with the original banana bread posted. It had all sorts of odd things in it, and I have a testimony of Ruth’s Banana Bread. (Ruth is my fabulous neighbor C’s mother. I will love her for life! And she always supplies me with other great recipes.) Trust me on this point. No other banana bread is worth making. Just follow Ruth’s recipe. To the recipe I added 1/2 c. girlie peanut butter (That would be the creamy PB. No nuts, but you can use the male version of PB also.) and 1 c. of mini chocolate chips. It made one big loaf, but it also made enough for 12 mini muffins. This is a treat of splendor. Good thing my red head is home today, or I may have eaten the entire loaf by myself.
