"These are so cute--I always make them for the kids when we have sushi. They think they are getting what we have."
Serving Size: 1 (122 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"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."
"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."
"I made this for my 3 1/2 year old in a bento for lunch. He loved them! I used whole wheat bread, creamy peanut butter, and homemade raspberry jam. I found they held together a little better if the last edge rolled up had only peanut butter, no jam. Jam all the way to the last edge was too slippery, and also gooshed out a little."
"When I make Sushi, I also make this for my daughter except as far as jelly she likes Peanut Butter and Fluffer Nutter Sushi Rolls. Although it is a slight deviation from the jelly, the fluff goes a long way !"
"From boring to the bomb! My 8 yo and her friend loved these!"
"My 5 year old son loves it when I make these. He thinks he is a big boy with his own sushi. It's quite easy to make."
"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. :-)"
"My kids loved this! I used wheat bread and cherry jam, and they really enjoyed this. I plan to use this for sandwiches for my son's lunch box--it'll change things up a little bit from just boring PB&J sandwiches without much extra work involved. Thanks for posting this cute recipe!"
"My girls start school tomorrow so while they are at the movies with grandma and hubby is doing yardwork, I'm working on school lunches. I tried one to make sure they would like them and yup.. I had to have 2 for lunch! My youngest doesn't like PB&J so I'll make some PB&J, some with fluff and some with nutella. This is a very cute idea! Thanks for sharing."
"OK now that I am looking over the recipe I realized what I did wrong. I totally overlooked the step on flattening the bread first somehow. If you don't do that, they definitely don't roll as nicely or as easily!!! I am going to try again for DD's next party."
"These were a huge hit for my son's 1st birthday -- the only thing I would say is that they need to be consumed immediately because they get stale pretty quickly. We made two whole loaves of white & wheat bread for 40 ppl and we had less than a dozen total rolls left at the end. I also heated the peanut butter a little bit so make it easy to spread, So good."
"I do this all the time for my kids - it's so much cleaner than having them take bites of a sandwich! This also works for nutella or tuna salad (if you mush it into a kind of paste first). I cut it into 8 thin slices for my youngest, but leave as-is for my 2 1/2 year old."
