Today’s reason to celebrate? It’s National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day! The sandwich you can count on no matter what. PB&J’s are reminiscent of all the times you spent growing up with your family, your go-to meal when you were a broke college student, or even packing your kid’s lunches when you were in a rush on those crazy school mornings.
But this year, we’ve decided to shake things up a bit and try out new recipes that are the perfect combination of salty and sweet. Trust us with this one, these treats will not disappoint!
Put the sliced bread down and head to the kitchen! It’s time to try one of these 15 unforgettable peanut butter and jelly dishes!
1. Peanut Butter And Jelly Cupcakes
Imagine your favorite flavors joining teams with your foolproof cake recipe. One bite and you get a surprise fruit filling! These cute cupcakes may be small, but they pack major flavor!
2. Peanut Butter And Jelly Monkey Bread
One part Pillsbury, two parts peanut butter gives you the base for this savory dessert! Top this treat with your preferred jam (mine’s strawberry in case you were wondering) and crushed Reese’s Puffs cereal. YUM!
3. Peanut Butter And Jelly Bars
Who needs PB&J sandwiches when you can top cookie bars with the sweetness of berry jam and crunchy peanuts? These bars are too good to eat just one.
4. Peanut Butter And Jelly Ice Cream
Five minutes and three ingredients is all you need for this PB&J twist on classic ice cream. Frozen bananas instead of all that cream and sugar makes for a guilt-free dessert! Your kids will crave this healthy version!
5. Peanut Butter And Jelly Oatmeal
Rise and shine with PB&J for breakfast! Steel cut oats have never tasted so good. This hearty oatmeal dish will turn anyone into a morning person!
6. Peanut Butter And Jelly Cookies
Alright, alright I admit this recipe has an additional ingredient. But how can you say no to chocolate? These melt-in-your-mouth cookies not only have Reese’s peanut butter cups, but they also have Ghirardelli dark chocolate raspberry squares!
7. Peanut Butter And Jelly Smoothie
It’s time for another healthy version of PB&J! The original creator of this frozen treat calls it her “Protein Punch” because it’s packed with nutrients to keep you full all morning long!
8. Peanut Butter And Jelly Pizza
One slice of this dessert pizza and there’s no turning back to regular old tomato sauce. Swap the savory sauce for sweet peanut butter frosting and jelly swirls! Need I say more?
9. Peanut Butter And Jelly Dip
Chips and dip is about to get a sweet makeover that you never knew it needed! Graham cracker “chips” dipped into this peanut butter and jelly dip is almost too good to be true.
10. Peanut Butter And Jelly Popcorn
No butter here! Switch out the salty movie theatre popcorn for melted white chocolate, peanut butter and grape jelly for an afternoon delight that everyone will love!
11. Peanut Butter And Jelly Cups
Reese’s you better start taking notes! These sweet and salty peanut butter cups are next level delicious with their fresh fruit center!
12. Peanut Butter And Jelly Cream Cheese Heaven
They call this treat a “PB&J Cream Cheese Ball,” but one bite and you’ll understand why I call it HEAVEN. Cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar, and sweet fruit spread. NOW we’re talkin’! Top it off with some peanut butter chips and you’ll have a dessert that your guests will rave about!
13. Peanut Butter And Jelly S’mores
These aren’t your average campfire s’mores with peanut butter and jelly. This recipe takes s’mores where they’ve never been before! Homemade strawberry marshmallows with melted Reese’s peanut butter cups? YES PLEASE!
14. Peanut Butter And Jelly Rice Krispie Treats
Rice Krispie Treats are a fan favorite for many reasons. The simplicity of crispy cereal and melted marshmallows never disappoint, but we’re about to turn it up a few notches. She mixes creamy peanut butter into the buttery marshmallows and drizzles a berry glaze on top. PB&J done right!
15. Peanut Butter And Jelly Doughnuts
Last, but certainly not least, we have peanut butter and jelly stuffed sugar glazed doughnuts. Creamy peanut butter and sweet jam has never looked so good! One taste and you’ll never go back to crustless PB&J sandwiches.
Now what are you waiting for? If this doesn’t convince you to celebrate, I don’t know what will!
Happy National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day!
