- Peanut Butter
- Jelly (or honey)
- Bread Cutter (to remove the crusts and create a circular sandwich)
Directions: Spread two slices of bread with peanut butter, putting peanut butter on both sides will keep the jelly from making the bread soggy. Spread jelly on top of peanut butter on one side; put two halves together. Press outer edges of your bread cutter into sandwich to cut off excess. Press down crimper to seal edges. Remove crustless sandwich from middle of bread. Wrap the sandwiches in plastic wrap, place in gallon zip-top bag, and store in freezer.
