Ingredients

  • 4 graham crackers
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp jelly

Graham Crackers From Scratch

  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cup wheat flour
  • ½ cup milk

Chocolate For Dipped Sandwiches

  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Prepare your graham crackers by laying them out.
  • Using your peanut butter and jelly in bags, squeeze each one over the crackers into whatever design you desire. Place an additional cracker on top to form a sandwich. 

Crackers From Scratch

  • In a mixing bowl, add ½ cup butter and 1 cup brown sugar. Beat until it begins to get creamy. Stop mixing. Add in 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp baking powder, ½ tsp salt, and mix together just until it is combined. Add in 1 cup all-purpose flour, 2 cups whole wheat flour, and ½ cup milk. Mix well after all ingredients have been added. Your dough will be very thick. 
  • Roll your dough into a ball and then slightly flatten it out. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least four hours or overnight. 
  • Preheat your oven to 350F and then pull the dough out of the fridge. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface until it is about 1/8 inch thick. 
  • Cut with a pizza cutter into squares or rectangles. Place squares onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Use a fork to create indents and sprinkle the top of all crackers with granulated sugar. 
  • Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until the edges begin to turn gold. Allow for cooling to room temperature. 

Chocolate Dipped Sandwiches

  • Create pb&j sandwiches and place them on wax paper or plastic wrap in the freezer. Allow them to freeze for four hours or until solid. 
  • In a bowl, add ¼ cup heavy cream and microwave until it just starts to boil. Pour into a bowl with ¾ cupchocolate chips and allow to sit for three minutes. After three minutes has passed, stir until cream and chocolate are completely combined. 
  • Take your frozen sandwiches and dip them into the melted chocolate. Place your sandwich that is now covered in chocolate on wax paper and allow to set. You can also place your finished crackers in the fridge or freezer to speed up the chocolate hardening process. 
  • You are all set to enjoy your pb&j graham crackers, made just the way you like them!
