Creamy PB&J Dip Recipe #MyPBJMoment
Disclosure: This is a sponsored post brought to you by Smuckers and Mom It Forward, as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own 🙂
This week my daughter entered the 2nd grade. All I could think was that it seems like just yesterday I was teaching her how to walk. How does time go by so fast!? Anyways, every year I nervously wait to see my daughter hop off the bus (hopefully in a great mood) and run in the house to tell me all about her first day of school. We usually sit down at the dining room table and have a snack as we talk about her day.
I think taking the time to share special memories brings you back to who you were. I can remember my mom sitting with me and me eating my PB&J. I also remember the first time I made my own. It had bananas I had to have them in there I insisted that they were necessary so my mom got me one and she helped me slice them. I lined them up so the bread wasn’t showing. I made sure every inch was covered with PB & J. I guess that is why I like to make this dip to make sure every square inch is covered!
Here is how to make my Back-To-School PB&J Dip Recipe:
You Will Need:
- 2 Cups Jif Peanut Butter (I like the creamy, but if crunchy is more your thing, go for it!)
- 1 Cup Smucker’s Concord Grape Jelly (You could use any of the delicious flavors offered by Smucker’s)
- 8 oz Cream Cheese (softened)
- 2 Tbsp Honey
Step 1: In a stand mixer add all your ingredients to the bowl. Mix on medium for about 30 seconds or until smooth.
Step 2: After you have blended your dip into soft creamy peaks, try not to eat it all as you transfer it to a bowl. Let it chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Step 3: Sprinkle some peanuts on top of your dip and serve with graham crackers (or fruit!) for a perfect back-to-school snack.
How do you celebrate the first day back-to-school?
