What to Serve with Peanut Butter and Jelly Graham Crackers
Of course, these graham cracker sandwiches are perfect with a glass of milk. They also make a great dessert for a sandwich-themed lunch or meal.
- Be gentle when spreading your peanut butter and jelly. If you press too hard, you'll break your crackers.
- Make these just before you're ready to serve them. If they sit for too long, they'll get stale and soggy.
If you make your peanut butter and jelly graham crackers too far in advance, the moisture from the peanut butter and jelly will seep into the graham crackers, causing them to become soggy.
Smooth peanut butter is the easiest to spread, but if you're careful, you can use crunchy.
The one you like the best! That being said, Jif, Skippy, and Smuckers hold the top spots among food experts.
