A Simple Twist for Your Everyday PB&J

You mean...peanut butter and jelly? Yes that's right!

My first PB&J was way back then, when I started to live in the states,
Believe it or not,
There's no such thing in Asia (well, at least not as common and most of the time, it can be a rare find).

Who would have thought mixing peanut butter together will fruit jam can create such a balanced and addictive flavor profile,
So I, once a little Asian girl, fell in love with it right after that very first bite.

And here's my take on PB&J,
The basic taste remains, but in a cuter/rounder form.


Minimum of 2 slices milk toasts/white toasts/or whole wheat toasts
Creamy peanut butter
Strawberry and guava jam (or any other kind of preferred jam)
Chocolate sauce


Just like how you make peanut butter and jelly,
Let's spread the peanut butter on one toast, jam on the other,
Stick them together with the peanut butter and jam sides in the inner part. 

With a medium round-shaped cookie cutter,
Or you can substitute with any circular shaped objects,
Guess what did I use?
Wine glass!

So press the cutter down,
You might want to twist it around in order to cut through the toasts.
Now you have a perfectly round shaped, semi-finished PB&J,
Go ahead and seal the edges by pressing the toasts down with your fingers.

Once done, heat up a skillet and toast both sides of the bread for a wee bit,
Before serving, simply transfer the tiny PB&J to the plate,
Drizzle some chocolate sauce over to make it even better!

Please enjoy.
