Brownies with Peanut Butter Icing!
I finished up my Spring Thirty One season on Friday with a great party from a new hostess of mine. She served some AMAZING food and my favorite was the dessert. I have to admit that I normally try not to eat, or just eat very little at my parties. Most of the time I don’t have time to, but there are occasions when the food is just too good to pass up. And this was one of them.
I tried this dessert which looked like chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. Come to find out that it’s BROWNIES! I love me some brownies but every time I make them at home my husband has them gone by next morning and the most I usually get to eat is 1-2 plus the batter I licked from the spoon after I got them in the oven. Can you relate?
I asked the hostess what the recipe was and I was shocked at how simple it was and totally excited that I had all of the ingredients in my cabinet at home!
- 1 box Brownie Mix (prepared as directed on box)
- 1 Container of White Icing (I used cream cheese icing and it was delicious)
- 1 scoop Peanut Butter
That was it!
So I come home that night, eager to try this recipe once I got my son in bed only to discover that I’m missing brownies AND peanut butter …
So… 3 days later when I finally make it to the store I can finally make this!
I baked the brownies in a 13×9″ baking pan and then let cool on a wire rack.
Meanwhile, I emptied the icing into a bowl and added a HUGE scoop of Peanut Butter. As I’m mixing, I turn around to find my 2 1/2 year old with his whole hand in the Peanut Butter jar. Oh, the joys of motherhood with a toddler I live for those moments though.
Mix the icing and peanut butter until it’s well blended. It will be a tan/light caramel color when finished.
Once the brownies have cooled somewhat, spread the frosting over the top, cut, serve and ENJOY! These are so good while the brownies are still warm. Try to resist the urge to eat the whole pan….as I tell my husband
