Let Your Imagination Run Wild!
Try dipping half the banana into chocolate and the other half in melted peanut butter chips. Instead of crushed peanuts, try different toppings such as crushed M&Ms, crushed Oreo cookies, or even crushed pineapple. Or a mixture of all of them! You are only limited by your imagination.
