Recipes from Open House - November 3, 2019

Our 23rd annual Christmas Open House was absolutely fabulous! Every year I think it can't get better - but it usually does. This year we changed up the food a bit. I challenged my aunt and mom to come up with three recipes that only have a few ingredients and are stress free. They did it!



Buckeye Brownies


* 1 box 9 x 13 brownie mix plus ingredients on box

* 2 cups powdered sugar

* 1/2 cup softened butter

* 6 tablespoons softened butter

* 1 cup creamy peanut butter

* 1 cup milk chocolate chips


*In a 9 x 13 pan, make and bake brownie mix according to box instructions. Let cool.

*In a bowl add your powdered sugar, 1/2 cup butter and peanut butter. Mix well. Spread with fingers over the brownies and pat down (it has a consistency similar to playdough).

*Melt together chocolate chips and remaining butter in a saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally. Spread over brownies second layer. Let cool and enjoy!

Peanut Butter Pan Squares


* 1/2 cup butter, cubed

* 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

* 1 and 1/2 cups sugar

* 1 cup all-purpose flour

* 2 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten

* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


*In a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter and peanut butter; stir until smooth. Combine sugar and flour; gradually add to butter mixture and mix well. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

*Spread into a greased 9 x 13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees until lightly browned and edges start to pull away from sides of pan, 28 to 32 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

Nougats


* 2 tablespoons butter

* 2 bags mini marshmallows (250g per bag)

* 2 bags white chocolate chips

* 2 cups gumdrops


*Melt/microwave the butter, marshmallows and white chocolate chips together until smooth. Mix in gumdrops. Spread on parchment paper lined in a 9 x 13 pan. Chill overnight in fridge. Cut into squres.

** Can be stored in freezer

Hints and tips: Use baking gumdrops but could use jujubes also (they wouldn't be as chewy). Can use nuts and cranberries instead of gumdrops. Allow to warm up a bit after taking out of the fridge - they are easier to cut.

My contributions to the food table? Making it look pretty and doing a bit of charcuterie style table.
