Preheat panini grill to high
4 slices honey wheat bread
1 tbsp butter, melted
2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
1 banana, sliced
1⁄2 cup thinly sliced strawberries
1 tbsp liquid honey
1 tbsp chocolate syrup
2 tbsp whipped cream
2 maraschino cherries (with stems)
1. Brush one side of each bread slice with butter. Place two slices on a work surface, buttered side down, and spread with peanut butter. Evenly layer with banana and strawberries. Drizzle with honey and chocolate syrup. Cover with top halves, buttered side up, and press gently to pack.
