These are for the kid in everyone! Mini Peanut Butter and Jelly Cups. This is a quick easy treat that will have you thinking about memories of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches from the cafeteria tables as a kid to a midnight snack of a toasted PB+ J sandwich. One memory comes to mind for me, I recall my brother making some really yummy cocktail and naming it a PB+J, hmmm….I will have to ask him about that one again. It’s been about 20 years since I had one. In the meantime I’ll just have to have another one of these.
