Kids young and old love these PB&J treats. Using refrigerated crescent roll dough, they're a fun snack for hungry youngsters to assemble. Parents just have to help with the baking. Plus, they're easy to vary using different jelly flavors and nuts to suit each child's taste. -Lisa Renshaw, Kansas City, Missouri

"These are amazing... I've made them numerous times and they're pretty much gone before they have time to cool! I usually double the recipe and fill half of them with nutella and half with pb&j. My kids LOVE them!"

"For Shmeena, I wonder if you could do cream cheese and jelly? I think I'll try that instead of the peanut butter. Also, Nutella spread is made with hazelnuts if that's allowed...we like our Nutella with bananas! Give it a try!"

"I dont know about in the US, but here in Ontario where I live Peanut Butter and peanuts are not allowed in schools. So all these great PB recipes are great, but not for school lunches. It would be nice to have some recieps that do not include peanut butter but that the kiddies will still LOVE to eat."
