Peanut-Butter-Cup-Graham-Cracker Sandwich

Prep time: 4 minutes
Cook time: none
Serves: 1 sandwich

2 graham crackers
2 Tbs peanut butter
1/2 Tbs mini-chocolate chips
1/2 banana, optional

All steps except cutting the banana (although kids 4 and up are capable of using a plastic knife with supervision).

1. Place 1 graham cracker on a sheet of aluminum foil, and spread it evenly with peanut butter.

2. Sprinkle chips over the peanut butter, pressing them in gently with your fingers or the back of a spoon.

3. Cut banana into 1/4-inch slices and layer over peanut butter, if desired.

4. Top with the second graham cracker; press gently. Wrap in foil, and pack in a plastic container to keep crackers from crumbling.
