Welcome to the second week of Mini Chef Mondays back to school month! All month we’re sharing back-to-school themed recipes for Mini Chef Mondays. This week we created a super easy sandwich you can make together or as a surprise for your kids lunch box- smiley face PB&J! If you’re school doesn’t allow peanut butter, you can use just jelly, sub in an appropriate nut butter or use meat and cheese!
Simply use a circle shape cookie cutter to cut the bread, two circles for each sandwich. Make the faces on half of the bread circles. Use a straw to cut the eyes by pushing it through and a press a spoon into the bread to make the mouths. Spread peanut butter and jelly on the bread without the face cut out and then put the two sides together.
Smiley face PBJs are a cute surprise to add to your kids lunch box for back to school and easy to customize with whatever kind of sandwich your kids enjoy! You can also use all different shapes of tiny cookies cutters to make funny faces, like stars for eyes or hearts for a nose! Get creative!
Worried about what to do with the extra bread from the circle cut outs? Why not save it in a baggy to make homemade croutons or take to the lake to feed the ducks?
