PB & J Recipe Roundup
PB & J. A beloved, universal sandwich. It's no wonder that people's obsession with it have lead to other peanut butter and jelly creations. In this latest Curbly Roundup, we decided to delve into the subculture of PB & J to see what's out there. Ready? Let's start the tour!    

From Taste of Home comes a recipe for a Peanut Butter 'N' Jelly cake.

Milkshakes more your style? Then you'll want to see this concoction courtesy of the 50s Prime Time Cafe at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

As they say, candy is dandy but liquor is quicker. The PB & Jelly cocktails from BarMeister will surely go down fast. There are 3 versions to choose from, including PB & J #1, PB & J #2 and PB & J #3.

And finally, we have this...a PB & J Jell-O Shot courtesy of My Science Project:

3 oz. package grape Jell-O
8 oz. (1 cup) boiling water
8 oz. vodka
Peanut Butter:
1 envelope plain gelatin
8oz. (1 cup) cold water
2 Tbsp. peanut butter 
2 oz. Bailey’s Irish cream
2 oz. Amaretto
2 oz. butterscotch schnapps or hazelnut liqueur
Sprinkle gelatin powder over cold water in top pan of double boiler. Let sit for a few minutes. Heat gelatin in double boiler over hot water until it liquefies. Add peanut butter, heat and stir until peanut butter is completely melted into gelatin. Remove from heat, let cool to room temperature, then add combined liquors. Fill cups halfway with peanut butter mixture, chill for 2 hours, then top with grape mixture and chill again.
