Are you are a “choosy mom” who has an even choosier child who thinks Sushi is Yucki? Jif has a three ingredient, three step, and three minute recipe she will find yummi.

This week’s Recipe For Fun is brought to you by, you guessed it – Jif.  We had so much fun making our own kid pleasing Sushi.  Who likes crusts anyway?  The chopsticks though, they will take a while to master.  Hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as we did.


  • 2 tablespoons Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 tablespoons jam, jelly or preserves of your choice
  • 2 slices bread


  1. REMOVE crusts from bread. With a rolling pin or large soup can, completely flatten bread.
  2. SPREAD 1 tablespoon peanut butter and 1 tablespoon fruit spread on each slice of bread
  3. ROLL each slice into a tight spiral. Cut each spiral into 4 pieces.

Give this a try and please share with us your opinion. So, okay then, you still think Sushi is Yucki?.
