Peanut Butter Brownies Recipe – Easy Brownie Mix Hack


Please remember that I don’t eat this stuff so I did not test this recipe. I’m just posting so you can try it!

Peanut Butter Brownies Recipe

Check Out My eBay Store!

INGREDIENTS:
check for ingredient coupons here
Brownies
1 box (16 oz) Betty Crocker Supreme original brownie mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on brownie mix box for cakelike brownies
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
1 egg
Peanut Butter Frosting
3/4 cup Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting (from 16-oz container)
1/4 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
1 to 2 teaspoons milk
(see my tips below)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!

DIRECTIONS:

1:  Heat oven to 325°F. Grease bottom of 9-inch square pan with shortening or cooking spray. Make brownie batter as directed on box for cakelike brownies. In small bowl, reserve 1/2 cup of the brownie batter and set aside. Spread remaining batter in pan.

2:  In small bowl, mix brown sugar, 1/4 cup peanut butter and 1 egg. Spoon peanut butter mixture by tablespoonfuls evenly onto brownie batter. Top with random tablespoonfuls of reserved brownie batter. Cut through batter several times with knife for marbled design.

3:  Bake 35 to 38 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 1 1/2 hours.

4:  In small bowl, mix Peanut Butter Frosting ingredients, until smooth and spreadable. Spread frosting over brownies. Cut into 5 rows by 4 rows. Store tightly covered.

Darlene’s Tips: Want a quick treat that looks homemade?  Pick up some store-bought brownies (like Little Debbie) and top them with the peanut butter frosting. That frosting would be delish on chocolate cake too! You could also sprinkle some peanut butter and chocolate morsels on top of the frosting. For extra peanut buttery frosting, try using equal parts of peanut butter and frosting. Add a few more drops of milk if necessary to get the consistency you want.  You can also make the frosting very light to use as a glaze. Just keep adding milk a few drops at a time.  Too thin?  Add some powdered sugar. Ohhhhh… you can add peanut butter to chocolate frosting too!  Yummers!

Apple Pie & Cheddar Bars Recipe

Check Out My eBay Store!

INGREDIENTS:
check for ingredient coupons here
1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 1/2 cups finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (6 oz) SAVE $
2 large apples
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
(see my tips below)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!

DIRECTIONS:

1:  Heat oven to 350° F. Line 8-inch square (2-quart) baking dish with cooking parchment paper, leaving paper overhanging on two sides.

2:  Using pastry blender (or your hands), mix 1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury sugar cookie dough with 1 1/2 cups finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (6 oz) until evenly incorporated. Press about two-thirds of mixture evenly in baking dish.  Bake 12 minutes then remove from oven.

3:  Meanwhile, peel and thinly slice 2 large apples. Toss apples with 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar in medium bowl. Spread apple mixture evenly over crust in baking dish.

4:  Add 1/4 cup all-purpose flour and 1 tablespoon sugar to remaining cookie dough mixture and combine until evenly incorporated.  Sprinkle crumbled chunks of cookie dough mixture on top of the apple layer.

Bake about 40 minutes or until top is light golden brown.  Cool 2 hours then cut into bars or squares.

Darlene’s Tips: You could add some chopped nuts to the top layer of cookie dough.  You could also add some spices to the apple mix like cinnamon or apple pie spice.  You can also serve warm with a side of ice cream.

Bisquick Banana Bread Recipe


Please remember that I don’t eat this stuff so I did not test this recipe. I’m just posting so you can try it!

Bisquick Banana Bread Recipe

Check Out My eBay Store!

INGREDIENTS:
check for ingredient coupons here
1 1/3 cups mashed very ripe bananas (2 large)
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 eggs
2 2/3 cups Original Bisquick mix
Optional: 1/2 cup chopped nuts
(see my tips below)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!

DIRECTIONS:

1:  Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom of 9x5x3-inch loaf pan.

2:  Stir bananas, sugar, milk, oil and eggs in large bowl. Stir in Bisquick mix (and nuts if desired). Pour into pan.

3:  Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool 10 minutes. Loosen sides of loaf from pan and remove from pan and place top side up on wire rack. Cool completely, about 2 hours, before slicing. Wrap tightly and store at room temperature up to 4 days, or refrigerate up to 10 days.

Darlene’s Tips: You can freeze this bread, either the whole loaf, or individually wrapped slices, and grab when needed.  Add banana extract for extra banana flavor especially if your bananas are not ripe enough (very ripe bananas give more flavor).

Copycat Almond Roca Candy Recipe


Please remember that I don’t eat this stuff so I did not test this recipe. I’m just posting so you can try it!

Copycat Almond Roca Candy Recipe

Check Out My eBay Store!

INGREDIENTS:
check for ingredient coupons here
1 1/4 cups chopped almonds, divided
1 packed cup of light brown sugar
2 sticks (16 tablespoons) butter
2 cups semi sweet, dark or milk chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vegetable shortening
(see my tips below)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!

DIRECTIONS:

1:  Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle 3/4 cup chopped almonds on bottom of the pan.

2:  Combine brown sugar and butter in a saucepan. With a candy thermometer clipped on the pan, heat mixture over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Use caution and keep stirring, and be careful mixture doesn’t begin to smoke or burn. It should take about five minutes to heat. Watch temperature climb to 290°F. Remove from heat and pour candy mixture over the almonds in the baking dish, using a silicone spatula to scrape all the candy from the pan. While candy sets, melt your chocolate.

3:  Place chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt the chocolate in microwave for 90 seconds at 70 percent power. Stir and continue to microwave for 30 second intervals, then 15 second intervals, until fully melted and smooth when stirred well. Pour chocolate over the candy. Grease the back of an off-set spatula or spoon with shortening or butter and use it to smooth the chocolate evenly. Sprinkle remaining almonds over the chocolate.

4:  Let the candy set 2 hours in the refrigerator, or overnight at room temperature. Cut into 2-inch square pieces. If the candy is refrigerated, let the candy come to room temperature before cutting.

Darlene’s Tips: Sounds a bit complicated but might be worth the effort!  I’ve never even heard of this recipe so I’m clueless.  I think you can give it a try and not worry about being so exact with the directions.  It if ends up too soft, freeze it and eat as a frozen sweet treat.
