    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!

    Loved this fun recipe. It's so easy and a much better way to eat pb&j sandwiches.

    For a PB&J, it was fun & different. BUT, for a true PB&J “sushi” roll, you MUST use in RICE CRISPY TREATS!!! I created Fluffer Nutter Sushi Rolls for our local Japanese restaurant using PB & Marshmallow Fluff on a flattened rectangle of rice crispy treats. The Japanese owner & chef loved the innovation & added it to his kid menu!
