Well, today we take PB&J out of the bread and turn it into dessert. A parfait, to be exact. Peanut Butter and Jelly Parfaits. Parfaits sound very fancy, and well, it IS fun to be fancy sometimes. Feel free to wear your tiara while eating them.
Oh! Let me tell you about this crunchy little topping. It's made from Nutter Butters and salted peanuts. Hello! We decided that this would also be an EXCELLENT ice cream topping.
(Unfortunately, we ate the remainder of the Nutter Butters before we could try it.)
The peanut butter cream is made with peanut butter (bet you guessed that), butter, sugar, and marshmallow creme...heavenly.
You'll also need jelly. I love this squeezable strawberry fruit spread, but feel free to just stir some lemon juice into your strawberry jelly to thin it out a bit.
You'll just layer the peanut butter cream in the bottom of a cute little jar (individual jars: also fancy), add the jelly, then the topping. Repeat.
Peanut butter and jelly...I promise to never take you for granted again!
