When it comes to holiday recipes, I like to keep it simple. Minimal prep time, limited ingredients, and the ability to make things ahead of time are all things I look for when planing out my holiday desserts. There Frozen Peanut Butter Sandwiches meet all of those requirements and happen to taste ridiculously good. All it takes to make these are a a few Honey Maid Graham Crackers, some Skippy Peanut Butter and some Cool Whip. Add some sprinkles and after a few hours in the freezer you have an amazing and refreshing holiday dessert. And since the weather here in South Florida is still in the high 70's, refreshing is still very necessary.
I don't know if I have been living under a rock or something but I have never combined peanut butter and whipped topping before. Apparently it is a pretty common thing. I cannot believe how much I have been missing out on my whole life. Justin and I could barely restrain our selves from eating it on graham crackers right out of the bowl while I was assembling the sandwiches.
Peanut butter and graham crackers are always a winning combination and recently we had my family over for a little holiday decorating fun and we had a friendly competition of building graham cracker and peanut butter "gingerbread" houses. I love that I didn't have to bake anything for these and could just unwrap some graham crackers and put a jar of peanut butter on the table. To put it nicely, my family is not cut out to be architects but we did have a lot of fun making some not so inhabitable looking structures.
The one exception to our structurally challenged family would be my brother who made this amazing graham cracker and peanut butter version of the Hancock Center in Chicago where he lives. He took this family activity very seriously and clearly his work reflects that. He used chocolate graham crackers and angled them with a sharp knife. He leaned them together with peanut butter as the glue and added antenna made from broken candy canes. He referred to it as a "movie set" building since the back is open but he found that it stood up better when leaned together without a back. The peanut butter made for the perfect glue and the building stayed upright for a few days.
As you can see below the rest of our family made some creative things as well. Our friend Aaron made a little dog house for her dog, Quincy. Justin's Aunt Lindzey made an adorable chocolate house and my Aunt Maria made what appears to be the cottage from Hansel and Gretel.
