1/8 tsp. coarse sea salt
Carefully slice VitaTop in half lengthwise (like you would a hamburger bun), so that you are left with 2 thin round “slices.”
Drizzle 1/2 tbsp. caramel dip onto the bottom Vita slice. Spoon and spread Cool Whip over the caramel. Drizzle with remaining 1/2 tbsp. caramel dip.
Top with the other slice to form a sandwich. Place on a plate and freeze until filling is firm, about 1 hour.

1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 small bananas cut in 1/2-inch slices (about 40 slices)
1/4 cup turtle crunch sprinkles or chocolate crunch sprinkles
2 packs Nabisco 100 Cal Oreo Thin Crisps (about 40 pieces)
2 tbsp. fat-free sugar-free caramel topping
Optional: 1 tsp. vegetable oil
Line a baking pan with wax or parchment paper.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips until chocolate is smooth and glossy, about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds to prevent burning. If it appears clumpy, stir in 1 tsp. vegetable oil.
Using a small fork, dip each banana slice into the warm chocolate, gently shaking off the excess. Immediately place on the wax or parchment paper.
Top chocolate-covered banana slices with sprinkles, and immediately place the pan in the freezer to set.
Once chocolate is firm, remove pan from the freezer. Remove the banana slices from the pan. Evenly place Oreo Thin Crisps in the pan, and top each one with a banana slice. Gently press down.
Drizzle caramel in a zigzag pattern on top of each treat, and store in freezer until ready to serve. Now indulge!

Nic's Tip! Dab a dot of caramel on each Crisp to help the banana slices adhere.
