Check out this terrible peanut butter sandwich hack that will make your life so much more complicated
If you find yourself hungry, really craving a peanut butter sandwich, why not take three and a half hours to make one just like Bev from Food Network did?
Meet Bev, the sandwich maker expert.
She’s here to teach us how to make peanut butter slices and she’s very excited about it.
First, you need peanut butter and some parchment paper. And three hours of you damn time. Did we mention that? Once you have those three items, spread a block of peanut butter onto the paper to create your slice. Normally, at this point, you’d be spreading it on bread and you’d be more than halfway done, but not in Bev’s hack!
Get ’em, Bev!
Bev suggests to make three big “gluggies or dollpies, whatever you want to call them but be sure to put a an ‘ies’ on the end cause it makes it cute.” Yes, because that’s very crucial to the recipe.
After you’ve wasted more time deciding on what to call your peanut butter, fold the parchment paper over and use a rolling pin to flatten it.
Then put the spread into the freezer, and maybe spend that time remembering that you were only supposed to be making peanut butter sandwiches here.
Wait three hours, hoping you don’t starve to death.
Assuming you’ve survived those hours or by “the next morning” if you’re feeling like a brave soul, you will find your peanut butter frozen.
You will need then need shears (not a single peanut butter sandwich I’ve ever made has required shears) to cut them into a slice. Does that sound like too much work? Bev sure doesn’t think so!
Once you’ve cut the peanut butter, you can put it on bread. BUT, you have to wait more time until it becomes room temperature and becomes actually edible.
If you’re fast enough, you might have enough time to add toppings to your slice.
Viola! After what feels like forever, you are finally done making a peanut butter sandwich. The best part is your kids wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between that and a normal sandwich that would’ve taken you five minutes to make.
Everyone in the comments section seems to feel strongly about this genius idea.
One Facebook user said, “Because nothing is easier than spreading peanut butter on waxed paper, rolling it flat with a rolling pin, freezing it overnight, then cutting the frozen sheets of peanut butter into bread sized squares and using them to make your honey and peanut butter sandwiches…..”
“I made this recipe, it was great. I cut out a few steps though and just spread the peanut butter DIRECTLY ON THE BREAD. Life changing!” read one sarcastic comment.
While some are left with questions.
“I tried this and spreading the peanut butter tore the wax paper. Do you have an additional recipe to help save time when trying to spread it onto wax paper?”
They’re really eager for answers, “What if I wanted my peanut butter, honey, and chocolate sprinkle piece of bread now, Carol??!!! What’s your amazing life hack for that eh?”
Meanwhile Bev seemed to inspire someone with her hack, “Love this…since having kids I had to quit my job due to the amount of time I needed to spread peanut butter each day…maybe now I can go back to work part-time!”
