Brownies & Strombolis

A few days ago my mother in law called me for a peanut butter icing recipe she could put on brownies. I found her the recipe and found me craving them!  So I grabbed a box of brownie mix at the store and got cooking. For the icing, I started to follow the recipe and then stopped because I thought it was already perfect. I mixed one stick of softened butter with one cup of peanut butter. Then I added the first of the two cups of powdered sugar the recipe called for. Once it was mixed in, I tasted it before adding the second and it was delicious!  So I just stopped. I didn’t add more sugar or the milk to thin it out. I didn’t need the milk because I didn’t use more sugar. So, my simple peanut butter icing recipe is:

  • 1 stick of softened butter
  • 1 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar

Also this week we had easy, yummy, strombolis.  These are so easy and fun to make.  The kids like to put theirs together. They have fun filling them up. You can add whatever you like to them.

Here is what I use:

  • Crescent rolls
  • Shredded cheese (mozzarella, cheddar. . .)
  • Sliced black olives
  • Sliced mushrooms
  • Tiny pepperoni

What you do it take 2 of the crescent rolls together (so they are a rectangle) and arrange your stuff on one side. I don’t put the sauce inside mine, I just like to dip them. Then fold them over and pinch them closed. I bake them at 350 for 10 minutes then flip them and bake for another 5. You don’t really have to flip them, but I like them browned evenly.
