So, what is a Roasted Banana and Nutella S’mores Bruschetta?  Think…..puffed melty marshmallows, warm Nutella, Roasted sweet bananas and crushed graham crackers–it’s what I am bringing you today :)

My treats are for a very special occasion to celebrate one of my dearest blogging friends Aggie from Aggieskitchen.com.  She’s having a baby soon and we are just thrilled for her!  I have known Aggie ever since I first started Picky Palate but just recently met her in Orlando at a Food Blog Forum.  She is just as sweet in person as I knew she would be.

Aggie's Kitchen and Picky Palate

Had so much fun chatting with Aggie in Orlando earlier this year.  We have a similar family having a big gap between our last baby.  Lots to gab about and I could not be more thrilled for her.

We are keeping an Italian theme for Aggie today and I chose my fun spin on bruschetta by joining it with s’mores, Nutella, and bananas :)

This could not be simpler to prepare and wait until you take your first bite.  No words, lol!

    Jenny these look awesome! Love all the flavors! What’s kind of ironic is that for your virtual shower a year ago, I made Chocolate Banana & Biscoff Graham Bars. Lots of similarities between the recipes with the bananas & chocolate. I used Biscoff rather than Nutella though :) Love the pic of you and Aggie!
