  • 2 Separate bread slices. Spread 1 tablespoon peanut butter on bottom slice of each. Top with 1 teaspoon jelly, 3 banana slices and top slice of bread.
  • 3 Place remaining tablespoon peanut butter and teaspoon jelly in small resealable food-storage plastic bag. Seal bag; gently knead to mix peanut butter and jelly. Cut 1/8 inch off 1 corner of bag. Squeeze RIP (rest in peace) on each "casket" sandwich. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Expert Tips

Feel free to use a spreadable fruit or other jam or preserves in place of the jelly.

Flavored peanut butter is also a tasty filling for these "coffin-wiches."
