This is my “tasty tuesday” post for the week, although it is Monday. I have a pending craft project to post for tomorrow, but I just couldn’t wait to put this up! This is hands-down one of the most delicious things you’ll ever eat: Broiled Peanut Butter Frosting (my grandma’s recipe). Usually, I put this on cake, but this time I went with brownies. It was a mess, but it was SO DELICIOUS. Now, I don’t usually give out this recipe (usually I just say “trust me, you don’t want to know what’s in this), but today is your lucky day. Now it is up to you to guard people from knowing the secret to your baking-mastery.
Grandma’s Broiled Peanut Butter Frosting:
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup Crisco (yep, told you that you wouldn’t want to know…)
Use an electric mixer to mix it up until it’s baby-bottom smooth. Let your cake/brownies cool, then spread it on. Broil in the oven for only a minute or two–I usually just keep a very close eye on it. it can go from nothing to burnt very quickly. If I had a little torch, I would use it.
And voila! A sticky, peanut butter chocolate mess. YUM.
