How to Make a Cute Bunny Rabbit Sandwich

My son is OBSESSED with Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches. While I don’t mind sending them to school with him each morning (on wheat bread, of course), I often get worried that I’m being a “lazy mom” by not making it interesting or mixing it up enough. Of course my rational self says thats what he WANT to eat and it’s really just ME that needs to dress things up – but still. I can’t help but imagine his little squeal when he opens up his lunch box to find cute Bento characters waiting for him inside.

So when I was given the opportunity to try Welch’s Natural Spreads, I was thrilled to accept. When the jars arrived in the mail, the first thing I loved about them is that they come in a plastic jar, because of course the first thing I did was drop it. Phew! My favorite flavor has always been strawberry, but since grade school I’ve always been a bit of a Strawberry Jam snob. I used to always make sure I was at a certain friend’s house on the weekends during lunch time because her mom would make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. But these weren’t ordinary jelly, she made her own strawberry preserves from scratch and it was absolutely delicious.

Twenty years have gone by and I have yet to find a jam/jelly/spread that tasted like that. Well, that is until now. I swear Welch’s stole Mrs. D’s recipe for their new Strawberry Spread. It must be because, like Mrs. D’s yumminess, Welch’s Natural Spreads contain no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors or colors, and no preservatives. Whatever it is, I’m hooked and can honestly say this is the only spread I will be buying from now on.

In honor of the upcoming Easter holiday, Whistler and I decided to share with you how we like to make one of our favorite PB&J sandwiches – the Bunny Rabbit!

*note* in the video we used blueberries for eyes. In the picture above, we used grapes. The facial features often vary according to what we have available that day so don’t be afraid to experiment!

    I love the Bunny shape. I used to do the same thing. don’t worry about being a lazy mom. My son took PB&J to school everyday until high school. He turned out fine.

    I like my PB&J sandwiches with a little more variety and creativity these days since I’ve had those darn sandwiches far too many times growing up. I should try this new combo with Welch’s Strawberry Spread instead of traditional grape jelly and even create a cute rabbit! It would definitely make eating PB&J more fun and exciting!
