Pb&j Appetizers

Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

It's just not fair for kids who hate some of those "adult" appetizers that have fancy stuff on them like olives and Brie and other stuff they've never tasted or even heard of. This will suit their taste buds and even be "fancy" enough to make them feel all grown up. It's cheap and easy enough for Mom to throw together for play dates or when a friend drops by with their kids in tow. Also easy enough to substitute diabetic jam for a sweet treat for those who have to go sugarless.

These were perfect! The kids at my house made them for themselves and their friends using townhouse crackers, Skippy creamy peanut butter and a quick strawberry jam I made the night before. You would be amazed at how many adults scoffed one off the platter. Thx. for posting such a great, simple and affordable appetizer that both kids and adults can enjoy! It is nice to be reminded how that you don't have to break the bank to serve something everyone likes..
