Open-Face Ice Cream Sandwiches with Caramelized Bananas and Walnuts

If you were to ask me what’s the very best thing I could think of to make with this Chocolate Bread I’ve been talking about all week, it would go something like this:

I’d grill a slice to get it nice and warm and a little bit toasted on the outside. Then I’d mound a generous scoop of Haagen-Dazs vanilla bean ice cream (or homemade if I had some) right in the middle, not minding in the least if some…or a lot…of it decided to melt on down the grilled ridges of the chocolate bread. After that I’d ladle on some caramelized bananas…and an extra ladle of that yummy caramel from the skillet. To finish it off, I’d sprinkle on some freshly toasted walnuts.

See, I told you I saved the best for last.

Thanks for joining me for Chocolate Bread Panini Week! If you missed them, check out my Brie & Basil Grilled Cheese on Chocolate Bread and Almond Butter & Raspberry Panini on Chocolate Bread recipes. I think we’ll have to go savory for a little while to counteract all this sugar. 🙂

Mmm that chocolate bread sounds SO delicious. Especially with caramelized bananas. Now, I wonder what would happen if the chocolate bread were a chocolate BANANA bread, too? It would be banana-crazy! Yum 😀
