This is a recipe for banana-based snacks memenanagkan food recipe contest Elite Gourmet Fruit Basket! conducted each month by banana.com
– 5oz Cream Cheese
– 1/4C Peanut Butter
– 2 Bananas (Good sized)
– 1/2tsp Melted Butter
– 1/2C Sugar
– 1 Vanilla Bean Pod
– 11/4C Whipped Cream (Also used as a garnish later on)
– 1-2 Puff Pastry Shells (May need one or more boxes)
– A.N. Chocolate Syrup (As needed)
While doing all this bake the puff pastry
1). In a large bowl soften the cream cheese and mix with the sugar.
2). Cut the Vanilla bean length wise, and with your thumb or with a knife scrape out the beans and add to the cream cheese and sugar. Add the melted butter. Mix well.
3). Put in the peanut butter. Mash up the bananas and add them to the mix. Get it as smooth as you can, but it doesnt have to be perfect.
4). Fold in the whipped cream. Put into the refridgerator to keep cool.
1). Depending on the pastry shells you got, there can be 2 options. First one is to fill the center with the mousse. If you got ones without a center, cut it half and now you have 2 bases to use.
2). Add the mousse to the middle or base of pastry.
3). Add as much whipped cream as you want.
4). Drizzle on some chocolate syrup.
5). ENJOY! I recommend a fork.
