Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Kabobs are a fun way to serve the classic sandwich. Perfect for school lunches or snack time.
This is the end of #BackToSchoolTreats week and I hope you’ve enjoyed all of the recipes we’ve been sharing. #BackToSchoolTreatsWeek is hosted by Terri from Love and Confections. Monday, I shared these sugar free banana muffins and Wednesday these easy scrambled egg and sausage Breakfast Taquitos. Today, it’s a classic sandwich turned into a kabob! Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Kabobs are easy to make, even the kids can do this one. After the recipe today, check out what the others are linking up!
I’ll confess that PB&J’s are not my favorite sandwich but it is a classic and from time-to-time, I do crave one with creamy peanut butter and blackberry jam. As a kid, it was grape jelly only. Of course, as a kid, these sandwiches were a staple in my lunchbox so perhaps that is why I rarely eat them.
This is one recipe that the kids can easily make with little or no supervision. When my girls were young, they made their sandwiches using a plastic knife and they really felt so proud that they made their own lunch. Once they made my Mother’s Day breakfast all by themselves – including a sandwich with sliced turkey that should have been discarded – it was so bad but I ate every bite as they watched. It’s those memories that last forever.
Making these sandwich skewers was fun and both my mom and I enjoyed lunch that day. I made hers with sugar-free strawberry jam and mine with organic blackberry jam from a local place here. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches can be healthy if you choose low sugar or natural jams or jellies with the natural peanut butter. Wheat bread is my go to sandwich bread but white is the classic choice for this.
How to Make Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Kabobs
To make the sandwiches you will need bread, peanut butter (creamy or crunchy), jelly of your choice and a knife. Spread the peanut butter on one slice of bread and the jelly on the other. Top the peanut buttered bread with the jelly slice and then cut off the edges of the sandwich. Cut the sandwich into four quarters.
Grab some fruit or even cheese cubes and start assembling the kabobs – a quarter of the sandwich then a piece of fruit and repeat until the skewer is full. I like to use the smaller skewers for this one but the larger ones hold more. Kids probably can hand the smaller ones more easily.
