I love coming to visit with you each month… thank you so much for having me. I can hardly believe how fast the summer flew by, my kids started school this past week and I’m starting my last year of Culinary School this week! We are back in the swing of things.

    1. Hi Sharon! I just got those at my local dollar store :) they’re cute more like skewer like that… Any wooden pick would work though. Have a great day! Ruthie

  1. those look delicious and I can’t wait to make them. Do you do anything to keep the bananas from browning?

    1. Enjoying them frozen helps to slow the browning and if they stay around for a few weeks they may begin to turn but if your like my family they will quickly be gone :). Ruthie

  2. Perfect idea for party bites. I`ll probably make 2 kinds of these bites. One with nuts and the other with white chocolate. Thank you for the inspiration.
