Last week, I posted this Insta photo about a project that I photographed back in January for National Peanut Butter Day (which was Jan 24th).
I never hit publish on it for the blog because I wasn’t super happy with how it turned out. BUT there were so many comments on IG, from people saying they wanted to make their own, I figured I’d post the rest of the photos here. Just in case you are as crazy about donut sandwiches as I seem to be.
So…It’s peanut butter, jelly time. Make these peanut butter and jelly donut sandwiches with any kind of donut and your favorite pb and j combo. They’re right up there with donut ice cream sandwiches in the decadent desserts department. But a lot less messy.
Just cut a donut in half (donut croissant, glazed, maple, sprinkles, etc) like a hamburger bun. Add peanut butter to the bottom ‘bun’ and your favorite jelly to the top ‘bun’. Smoosh them together and dig in. It’s kind of like a filled jelly donut, only with the added bonus of peanut butter.

I may be completely insane for making these. The verdict is still out. But it’s becoming more and more clear that I don’t shy away from decadent dessert ideas. So, at least it’s becoming part of the norm around here.
Curious to know what you think of these. What kind of donut do you think would work best for this type of sandwich?
