Today, April 2nd, is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. Why is this even a holiday? Apparently the average American will eat over 2,000 PB&J sandwiches by the time they graduate high school. Peanut butter and jelly are a superhero duo, a national treasure, and a celebration of childhood and all things nostalgic.
While classic PB&J never gets old regardless of your age, you can make the pairing more adult (aka more boozy) with these 5 liquored-up peanut butter and jelly desserts.
I don’t know who Jeanette is but homegirl knows how to make a milkshake- and that’s with strawberry ice cream, creamy peanut butter (although I’d be tempted to try crunchy?) and 3 shots of bourbon. But don’t get too excited, the three shots are meant to be spread out across 4 servings. Theoretically, at least…
Boozy Peanut Butter and Jelly Tart Recipe
There is absolutely nothing in this recipe that I am not 1000% on board with. We’re talking a peanut butter cookie crust. A Frangelico and peanut butter filling. A raspberry jam AND raspberry liqueur topping. Top to bottom, beginning to end, all of this is ultimate boozy perfection.
Deep Fried PB&J Cupcakes
Okay this just makes me laugh because the only thing that makes this boozy is a shot of pb&j vodka literally placed in a shot glass on top of the cupcake. But it gets the job done, so no complaints here.
Boozy PB&J Milkshake
Yes this is the second boozy milkshake on the list, but hear me out. Consider re-freezing the shake and making it the middle of a peanut butter and jelly ice cream sandwich, sandwiched between 2 peanut butter cookies, like this heavenly recipe does. You’ll thank me for posting two milkshake recipes, I promise.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Shot
If you drink this Frangelico and Chambord liqueur PB&J shot after dinner it definitely counts as dessert.
