Chocolate Malt Ice Cream Sandwiches

From EatingWell

Nothing conjures up childhood nostalgia like these frozen sandwiches - but forget the jangling bells on the ice cream truck and make your own for an even better treat. The ice cream needs to be firm enough to hold its shape before making the sandwiches. If it's too soft, let it chill in the freezer before assembling, but if it's too hard, let it sit out for a few minutes first.

Caramelized Bananas

From EatingWell

The bananas have to get in and out of the pan in 1 1/2 minutes, no longer, so they stay firm in the center. If you are cooking for 4, you can easily double the recipe; it is important not to crowd the skillet, so get everything ready to go and make it in 2 batches.
