Peanut Butter and Jelly Sundaes: A Sweet Taste of Early 20th Century America

The early 20th century must have been an exciting time in America for foodies with a sweet tooth. In a period of less than 15 years, all the components would be in place which — more than 100 years later — would combine to make today’s spectacular treat.

1903 – Dr. Ambrose Straub invents a process for making peanut butter

1917 – Paul Welch patents a process for making grape jelly

1918 – The George & Thomas Cone Co. begins operation, eventually becoming Joy Cone

If you love peanut butter and jelly and you love deliciously sweet and crunchy Joy Waffle Bowls — and who doesn’t? — then you’ll love our latest amazing culinary combo: Peanut Butter and Jelly Sundaes.

Here’s how easy it is to make this scrumptious helping of American history.

What you’ll need:

  • Joy Waffle Bowls
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Jelly/Jam Sauce
  • Honey Roasted Peanuts
  • Whipped Cream
  • Cherries


To create jelly sauce, place 1 cup of jelly into small saucepan. Add two tablespoons of water and heat over low-medium burner setting. Stir until jelly/jam melts into smooth sauce. Add more or less water, depending on your preference for a thinner or thicker sauce. Place in refrigerator to cool.

Add peanut butter to small bowl and microwave 30 seconds or until melted.

Place one Joy Waffle Bowl onto plate. Add a large scoop of vanilla ice cream. Next, drizzle melted peanut butter onto ice cream. Remove jelly sauce from fridge and spoon desired amount over ice cream. Crush honey roasted peanuts and sprinkle over top. Finish with whipped cream and cherry to garnish. Enjoy immediately!

*Take caution when dealing with heated liquids on cooking surfaces and microwaves as they will be hot.
