Pretzel Banana Nutella Kickstands

I’ve been a in a snacky mood lately. I crave chocolate, sometimes a Nutella-banana combo, and I’m always craving a crunch. I had to remedy this mood of mine with a perfect fixing of all those flavors combined into one. I started to imagine Nutella sandwiched between two slices of banana, with a pretzel stuck somewhere in between, then I wanted them dipped in chocolate too. How was I gonna dip? I thought, “I’ll stick a toothpick in them and that will keep me from having to touch the actual bananas with my fingers.”  It worked perfectly and when I placed them down to harden they looked like little kickstands.
