Mmm mmm Monday~

Brownies...yum.Here is a super easy/fast recipe for brownies. Grab a box of brownie mix (told you it was easy!) Instead of using the 2/3 cup of oil that the recipe called for on this box, I used applesauce. You cannot even tell the difference--honestly! Anywho, cook according to the box. I used a 13"x9" pan so it took me about 25 minutes to cook.

Once the brownies have cooled completely..... whip up this yummy frosting to add on top. This frosting is more on the "peanutty" side rather than the "sugary" side....so if your needing something sweeter, this isn't the frosting for you.

Peanut Butter Frosting~
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or creamy)
5 Tbs. butter (not the real stuff)
1 tsp.vanilla
mix all that together-- then add up to 1/3 cup of milk depending on how thin or thick you want this frosting to be. NOTE: do not add all the milk at once or you'll end up with a thin/runny frosting.... pour a little milk in at a time so you can control the thinkness of the frosting. I prefer thicker.... so I added only about 1/4 a cup of milk. It made the frosting very thick & fluffy, almost like a meringue. Then just smooth the frosting on top of the cooled brownies in the pan and cut into squares.
