Chocolate Elvis Sandwich

I have something to confess: Not all my desserts are pretty, dainty, or even that good.  Sometimes they look like this. The poor quality photos, the obvious late-night binge-- there's nothing but a shame snack here.
My friend Asia emailed the other night to say she had made a Chocolate Elvis Sandwich.  I had no idea what this was, but needed to know immediately so I too could make one.  I was with another friend, Tara, planning our Martha party and we were both so intrigued we resorted to texting and emailing her concurrently in obvious desperation until she told us.

Have you heard of an Elvis sandwich?  It's a peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwich, fried in butter.  Holy awesome, right?  Well she kicked it up a notch by adding chocolate.  She didn't use bacon, though. (I disapprove, Asia).

This sandwich is every bit as wonderful and terrible as you think it is. Next time I can see it easily morphing with a fluffernutter and becoming a peanut butter, marshmallow, chocolate, and bacon fried dream.  God help us all...

Do you have a shame snack?


  1. I have tried another version of this... a banana split peanut butter grilled sandwich. It had peanut butter smeared on it layered with strawberries, pineapple jam, and chocolate chips or syrup. Oh so delicious! I surprised my itty bitty with it for breakfast one morning and believe he awarded me mother of the year with that! Haha! I've heard of the Elvis before but tend to stray when I think of how he went out.

  2. I forgot to add that obviously bananas were also layered on the sandwich.

  3. Lol....shame snack. It looks wonderful. ;)

  4. Leanne - you're so cute. Sometimes a late night binge is exactly what we need! And this is a wonderful late night binge indeed. By the way, new profile photo? Beautiful! You should become a model.

  5. I am a hug fan of Elvis and I know he loved junk food so this is no surprise that this is an Elvis sandwich, yum!

  6. It's peanut butter and pickle for me. It's not just pregnant women food - it's an amazing treat that I will crave for weeks until I finally huddle by the cupboard and stuff my face. Shameful, I know. But so damn good.

  7. This is a fabulous shame snack. In fact, I think it is so fabulous that I'm going to have to call it my own! I adore Elvis sandwiches, and I'm feeling the need to make one right now! Thank you for sharing. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Hi there, I'm new to your site, but I wanted to say if you were on Tokyo...would love for you to cater some of my parties... shucks...

    Love your photos, recipes, and all the goodies in between = )

    Thanks, briarrose! it was delightful, but only for special occasions

    Lisa: he was clearly onto something, non?

    Roxan, you are too sweet. It's just good angles!

    Very interesting C&C. Totally with you on huddling by the cupboard, though! No better place for shame eating.

    Thanks, Monet! I hope you enjoy!

    Thanks, new york. you're too sweet :)
