This is exactly something I would do. Everything is better when deep fried. Fortunately for me, DudeFoods already found the problem areas and how to implement this correctly, so that means even less work for me.
I actually prefer the idea of having the jelly as a dipping sauce instead of mixed directly into the fried bread balls. This means controlling exactly how much sweetness gets added each time and there’s the added bonus of choosing some nutty, fried goodness without any jelly at all.
And then there’s the added bonus for someone who is as indecisive as I am and who loves using different sauces: I could easily have 3 different jams or jellies out with these and then pick and choose which to dip in!
Peanut butter and jelly is really not something I mess with. I might try a new flavored jam. Or I might mix it up with crunchy versus smooth. I may even cut a mass set of sandwiches into different shapes or use the peanut butter and jelly combination in a different dish (like for PBJ cupcakes).
I don’t really stray from just peanut butter and jelly together, though. You won’t see me adding bananas. And while honey works well with peanut butter, that’s an entirely different combo entirely….and it won’t be put on my bread and eaten as if it’s an alternative to PB&J.
I do find the above a bit interesting, but I don’t have much interest in eating it….especially since it seems to me like some of the sections have way too much spread (I’d cut that Nutella layer in half!).
Having a different taste for every bite is a cool idea….9 different combinations possible!
Jam + chunky peanut butter
Jam + Nutella
Jam + smooth peanut butter
Honey + chunky peanut butter
Honey + Nutella
Honey + smooth peanut butter
Marshmallow spread + chunky peanut butter
Marshmallow spread + Nutella
Marshmallow spread + smooth peanut butter
It’s the grey area that has me curious (disgusted?) though. What happens when you can’t get all of a particular combination into a single bite and the rest start mixing together?
What does chunky peanut butter, Nutella, honey, and jam end up tasting like? Or honey, marshmallow spread, and chunky peanut butter?
Maybe it’s amazing! Or maybe it’s an overload of sweet condiments that are better served in desserts than on bread.
