I am almost certain that ,thanks to Pinterest, I can pull off almost anything on a moments notice.
Or at least I think I can. On that note, the biggest problem that I see with Pinterest, is that so many people are on it. I mean when you think you are all creative and make something to go to a party, people will say 'oh, I saw that on Pinterest'. Sort of takes a little something away.
Anyway, we were invited to a pool party last night. Whenever we are invited anywhere, the biggest dilemma I have is making sure there will be food that will be safe for String Beane's allergies. I had the dinner part all planned out, but dessert had escaped my attentions. Enter Pinterest.
I saw this post by Cookies and Cups and thought it would be easily adapted for milk allergies. I pinned it. So, about 2 hours before the party started, I started working on a dessert to take.
I made these cute little Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Bites. They were GOOD!. They were simple and they were fast. And, I made them without milk!
One box of Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge brownie mix and ingredients called for on the box. (This is milk free)
1/2 cup butter, room temp (1 stick) (I used Fleishmann's unsalted margarine - milk free)
1 cup creamy peanut butter
6 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk (you can add more if your prefer a creamier frosting) (I used Almond milk)
Optional Garnish of chopped peanuts and chocolate syrup.
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix up your brownie mix according to package directions.
Line a mini muffin pan with pretty cupcake liners and give it a spray with cooking spray.
I used a cookie scoop to fill the cupcake liners about 2/3 full.
Bake for 12 minutes. I wanted these to be a little gooey, so do not over cook.
Allow to cool for about 10 minutes and then move them to a cooling rack and let completely cool.
While the brownies are cooling, make your frosting.
Dump the margarine, peanut butter, powdered sugar and almond milk in a bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and fluffy. Add more milk if you needed to make the frosting the consistency that you like.
When the brownies are cool, pipe some frosting on the top of each one and look at your pretty work.
Garnish with some chopped peanuts and a drizzle of Hershey's Syrup. If you have any leftovers, store them in the fridge.
Take one more look at them.
They are so good. Make yourself some.
