PB&J Roll-Ups {Crazy Easy & Fun!}

This is seriously the only way I can get my youngest to eat a sandwich. It's basically a deconstructed and then reconstructed {with a twist} peanut butter & jelly sandwich. Something about making it into cute little rolls makes these disappear a lot quicker. 

Trim the crusts off of two slices of bread and then roll them as flat as possible {without tearing the bread or wearing it too thin} with your rolling pin.

Apply a thin layer of peanut butter to each slice.

Then top that with a thin layer of jelly.

Then take each piece and begin to roll them up {jelly-roll style}, nice & tight.

You'll probably have a little jelly ooze out by the time you have it completely rolled. That's okay, I'm sure you'll figure out what to do with that {wink, wink}.

I like to use a sharp, serrated knife to cut my "logs" into three pieces. The serration will give you a nice, clean cut and won't squish the "log" down in the process.

And there you go! 

Perfect in a lunch box, for an after-school snack or even at a kid's party.
