Here I go again with Peanut Butter and Banana together. They are based on the sandwich which “Elvis” loved which was a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. If it is a favorite of “The King,” then I think it is worth trying out!
I love how these are lighter and I actually use this frosting for other treats as well. Also check out my other peanut butter and banana combos like Frozen Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Banana Loaf and “No-Bake” Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Banana Cookies with Oats. Enjoy~
