Jabari Parker Makes 'Jabari Bars' For Duke Students, Uses Comical Amount of Butter

By DJ Byrnes on March 5, 2014 at 11:44a

Jabari Parker is a star basketball player at Duke. That is until after this season, in which he will turn pro and make millions of dollars as a likely Top-3 (at worst) draft pick.

Until then, he's still a college student, which means he knows what it takes to cook up a great dessert made out of everyday items you'd find in a college kid's pantry.

Enter the Jabari Bar, a famous dessert from the star's own recipe Rolodex. Using an amount of butter that would make Betty Crocker blush, Jabari whipped up a batch of his famous treats and hit the Duke campus to pass them out the Cameron Crazies.

I wish bad things to Duke and their basketball team, but this Jabari kid seems to be a pretty cool dude:

He is a class act.  Too bad he went to Duke.

Seems like a nice kid.  Stories like this make it worth while following college athletics.  Kids being kids.

I don't get all the Duke hate, and the wishing bad things for Duke.

Coach K is a class act.

Now, Boeheim (& Syracuse) -- I could understand people really disliking that guy. He's pretty slimy.

Some of us have hated Duke for a long time, with good reason.  Hard to just drop it.

But Parker is an ok kid.




Go Bucks!

Go Bucks!

He seems like a great person. If only he could call himeself a Buckeye... It would be great on the court and off the court for him at Ohio State. If only I could have one. Well, Good Luck, Jabari.

My Dad made the same recipe when I was growing up (it's right out of the Betty Crocker recipe book), with the only difference being that my Dad cut out the walnuts and the coconuts.  We absolutely loved them!

I don't think that he is for sure going to the draft.  Doesn't he have to do a 2 year mormon mission still?
