"Coffins" fashioned from bread and filled with peanut butter and jelly make the perfect Halloween lunch for your little skeletons!
Updated Oct 2, 2008

Ingredients

  • 16 slices bread
  • 9 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 9 teaspoons grape jelly
  • 1 small banana, cut into 24 slices

Steps

  • 1
    Place 1 piece of bread on top of another. Cut 4-inch by 2 1/2-inch "casket" shape from longest part of bread slices. Cut 1/2 inch off both corners of top of bread slice. Repeat with remaining bread slices for 8 "caskets."
  • 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.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Feel free to use a spreadable fruit or other jam or preserves in place of the jelly.
  • tip 2
    Flavored peanut butter is also a tasty filling for these "coffin-wiches."
