Peanut butter battle in NYC

Each year, Jif holds its "Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest," in which kids from all over the nation cook up concoctions with--what else?--yummy, gooey peanut butter. This Friday, the five finalists will present their creations to the judges, and the winner will take home $25,000 in scholarship money. (The four runner-ups will walk away with $2,500 each--not too shabby for sandwiches!). The final five treats are shown below, and they all look quite delish. Check back on Friday, when we'll announce the winner and share his or her recipe so you can create some PB perfection in your own kitchen. See how these kids thought outside of the jar after the jump.
