Birthday Sandwich

This came from Picky Palate. She called it the "puffy banana peanut butter cup sweet grilled sandwich". Bit of a mouthful for me. Colin and I loved this so much that after I first made it we ran to Costco and bought an entire box of king size Reeses Peanut Butter cups. It is pretty dang rich so we haven't had it for a while. But I decided to make it for the kids on their birthdays. One, because it is REALLY good and two, because it would send you into a diabetic coma if you ate it more often than once a year. My sisters are skeptical of this sandwich and won't try it, but I promise it is really really good. Just make sure you have someone to share it with because you won't be able to eat the whole thing yourself.

2 slices whole grain bread
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 banana, cut into thin slices
24-30 mini marshmallows
1 Reeses Peanut Butter Cup, normal size
2 Tbsp. soft butter
Powdered sugar for sprinkling, optional
Spread peanut butter onto both slices of bread. Lay banana slices over one piece of bread and marshmallows over the other piece, pressing down gently. Break apart the Peanut Butter Cup and evenly place in between marshmallows. Carefully lay the bread with banana over the marshmallow side and press gently. Spread butter onto outsides of each piece of bread and cook both sides in a medium skillet over medium low heat until golden brown and marshmallows are warm and slightly melted. Let cool for 5 to 7 minutes before slicing. Sprinkle both sides with powdered sugar and serve warm.
