Peanut Butter Roll - Tis the Season.....

For sweetness.
The edible kind!

At my house, the holidays mean extra baking and whipping things together.
Lots of things. Lots of sweet things.

Sometimes during the holidays it is nice to have a quick easy recipe to go to when you 
don't have a lot of time for real baking.

Today I made a Peanut Butter Roll. Fairly simple, quick and few ingredients. 
The perfect sweet treat for the Holidays.

Here's the ingredients that I'll need....

You'll want to let your stick of butter set out for a little while so that it can soften and 
be easier to mix with the powdered sugar.
After you mix your powdered sugar, butter, milk and vanilla; sprinkle your surface with powdered sugar.
I used parchment paper on top of my cutting board and sprinkled the parchment with powdered sugar ...

Now sprinkle your mixture with powdered sugar and roll it out to the thickness you want.
Throw about 3 or 4 tablespoons of peanut butter on there and spread it. 
I have found that it is easier to start spreading from the middle.

After the peanut butter is spread, pick an end and start rolling. 
Be gentle so that it doesn't fall apart.

Once it's all rolled up, you'll want to refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes so that it can firm up....

After it has chilled, slice it and enjoy. My husband is out of town for work and I just had to 
tease him with the following looks so perfect....

I love peanut butter and this has always been a family favorite, especially around the Holidays 
because it is easy to make and convenient for parties and get-togethers. 
Not to mention it is super sweet and yummy!

Peanut Butter Roll

peanut butter - I used about 4 tablespoons but you use however much you like
extra powdered sugar for sprinkling surface and mixture

Mix softened butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and milk until well combined.
Sprinkle your work surface with powdered sugar, dump the mixture onto powdered surface, 
sprinkle mixture with powdered sugar and roll out the mixture.

    Thanks for stopping by.
    I ventured over to your blog, very nice by the way, and shared this recipe. Thanks for the invite.

  6. It looks sooooooooo GOOD
    Definitely my kind of treats :)

  7. My great grandmothers recipe calls for the use of corn syrup instead of milk. I have tried both milk or corn syrup and I like them both just the same. In place of the peanut butter you can use peppermint flavoring and a little green dye and then roll up. I always cut mine up after staying cold for a half hour and put the slices between wax paper. We just called them rolled candy. Thank goodness they are so easy to make because I usually have to make several containers for everyone.

  8. Wow! What an easy recipe! I can see myself making some of this and probably eating it all myself too!

    Thank you for linking up to the In and Out of the Kitchen party! I look forward to seeing what you bring next week!
