These are so good and so much fun. Some tips i have are: Microwave the peanut butter to make it easier to spread. Stir the jelly to make it not one big chunck. Only put jelly on a little over the bottom half of the slice. Leave the last edge to be rolled only with peanut butter. After you finish rolling it up roll your hand back and forth to seal the roll. Put in freezer to harden rolls to make it easier to cut slices. Wipe knife with wet and dry towel after each roll. These were fun to make and everyone got a kick out of them. Yummy!
I've three hungry grandkids and needed something quick and entertaining. This kept me from putting my head in the oven. Thank you!
LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Made for my 7 year olds lunch. She was so excited. Put the whole rolls in the fridge overnight and sliced in the morning. They were much easier to slice cold. Next time will make extra cause my daughter's friends all wanted a taste. :-) Would be super cute for a party or pot luck with kids.
I always make these for my son! Sometimes we add fillings like fruit (banans work good) - you can freeze these as well, take them out and pack them frozen in the bento/lunch and they will be ready to eat by lunch time! Also works great with other sandwhich fillings!
Saving this for future grandchildren! I can see so many fun variations on this clever theme! P.b./banana, with crushed potato chips for a "crunchy" roll? Cream cheese and sliced grapes? Nutella and raisins?
Such a good idea. My son's school is a nut free school zone so I can't use peanut butter in anything. I just use strawberry jelly and either thin sliced ham or turkey. He LOVES them. Easy and convenient for packing a lunch too.
My mom used to make these when we were younger! Only we used butter as filling, or ham... you can actually use any filling, except for the "'messy" ones like chicken salad, tuna salad and egg salad, etc.
Thanks for posting this. Revived some childhood memories. :-)
This is such a cute idea. I made this as a quick snack this evening, using raspberry preserves. But my rolls didn't turn out looking like any of the pics. I think I rolled my bread too flat which made cutting them a total mess and pain. But I like the idea so I am going to make it again and not roll out the bread that thinly next time. Thanks for posting.
My 4 and 2 year old love these! So easy and fun for lunches for something different.
I surprised my daughter with these in her lunch the first day of school. I asked her how her lunch was and she had the biggest smile on her face!! Said everyone wanted to taste it. What a great way to make PB & J a hit once again. I also do this just lunch meat and cheese. She asked for this all the time now.
