Chocolate Covered Banana Bread
Sipping my morning vat of coffee is a moment that I savor every single day. Enhancing that moment felt impossible until I created this incredibly rich chocolate ganache covered banana bread—I mean, who doesn't love banana bread in the morning (afternoon and night)? There is truly something special about this one. That creamy unique flavor in the chocolate coating elevated to a whole new level by the International Delight French Vanilla Creamer, I'm obsessed! I'm pretty sure this is what Beyoncé meant when she said "let me upgrade you". I'm so with her. My morning coffee routine has been officially upgraded!
