Jif & Smuckers is spreading some PB&J love with new ways to enjoy America’s favorite sandwich this school year. We asked blogger Jamielyn Nye of I Heart Naptime to dream up a tasty and fun recipe for this year’s Back-To-School time. Read below for quick tips on how to create delish PB&J sandwich skewers, and if you want to learn more - check out all of her tips at the article post.

PB&J sandwich skewers with fresh fruit make lunchtime more fun and are so easy to make!

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a favorite around here. My kids love making them into little sandwich skewers. My husband loves making a triple stack (basically a PB&J with 3 pieces of bread) and I love making mine open face with bananas and a cold glass of milk. It’s something I crave all the time this pregnancy!

How to make PB&J sandwich skewers

  • Spread the peanut butter and jam onto 2 slices of bread
  • Using a small circle or shaped cookie cutter (I find the 1 1/2 – 2″ size works best) press the shapes out of the sandwich
  • Push the bite sized sandwiches through a skewer, placing a piece of fruit in between each piece (I like the 4-inch picks for lunch boxes)
  • Enjoy!

For the first day of school I also included these lunch box notes (find the free download HERE). I don’t add them everyday, but every once in awhile when I know they could use a little extra love, I like to add in a little special note. Showing a little love, to go can go a long way!
