Jazz in the Park has started again! It is one of my favorite Denver events. Gathering with friends, listening to live music and having a picnic on a Sunday evening. I brought the perfect sweet treat to our picnic this past Sunday and I found it on one of Jenny's favorite blogs, Siriously Delicious. They were an absolute hit and PB, banana & chocolate is a combination that most couldn't resist. Beware, they are hard to stop eating.
