I feel like it must have been at some time scientifically proven that small things are better than big things.
Perhaps this theory doesn’t extend to everything like a car or a house, although that tiny house trend might suggest otherwise. But as far as a lot of everyday items, those cute, tiny, often more expensive for reasons I cannot explain or understand, small things, particularly small versions of big things, are pretty much irresistible.
Think back to toys you played with as a kid. For me, it was Barbies all the way. The tiny boxes of cereal and shoes and jewelry still make me go awwwww whenever I catch a glimpse. Even the mini bottle of shampoo or trial size lipsticks are so fun and often useful. Who wants to buy a giant lipstick when you can have three different tiny ones???
When it comes to food, the story doesn’t change. Samplers of maple syrup or mustard, little packets of ketchup and soy sauce. They are all pretty much irresistible and I bet all of us have more than one tiny food item in the pantry right now.
Sliders are another small food that always catches my interest. Mini burgers are super fun, especially if they come with mini fries. Sliders are another great way to try a couple different sandwiches if a restaurant offers that option. Several in the Detroit area do and it’s a great way to dine.
Sliders are just as doable at home, and I highly recommend these Peanut Butter Banana S’mores Sliders. Each component on its own is delicious, but together, they create magic. There’s the gooey, sweet marshmallow and banana, the bitter chocolate/carob, the salty, crunchy peanut butter, and the toasty, crunchy bread brings it all together.
I could not believe how much I love these sliders and I know you will too! Have fun making them and serve at your next party! People will love them for more than just their size.Print
- ½ loaf crusty artisan bread, sliced thin
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 3 large bananas, sliced
- 2 cups marshmallows, any variety or flavor
- ½ cup melted coconut oil
- 1/3 cup carob or cocoa powder
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. spread butter on one side of each piece of bread. Place half the pieces of bread buttered side down on a foil lined baking sheet. Spread peanut butter on top and then top with bananas and marshmallows.
- Stir together the coconut oil and carob or cocoa powder until a syrup if formed. You may need more oil or powder depending on the consistency. It should pour like pancake syrup. Drizzle over the sliders. Top with another slice of bread, butter side up.
- Bake for about 20 minutes until marshmallows have melted and bread is toasty. Serve immediately or store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
