Monday, January 11, 2010
I have a great group of girlfriends that I love to get together with and play cards. Once upon a time we used to meet weekly for dinner and games-but things have changed as we have gotten married and had kids. Our New Years resolution for 2010 is to have Girls Night Out at least once a month. I hosted this past weekend and we had such a fun time! We munched on veggies and dip and a hot spinach/artichoke dip. For dinner I made a roast beef roll that was delicious. (It is a Pampered Chef recipe that I hadn't made in a long time) After dinner we got into our card game and passed around a big bowl of kettle corn - which is a staple for Girls Night in my opinion. I also tried out my own creation - a peanut butter s'mores dessert.
Here's a picture of my two best friends...my sisters. I couldn't have asked for better sisters or friends!
And here are some pictures of my creation...
Peanut Butter S'mores
1 pkg. chocolate cake mix
2/3 c. crushed graham crackers
1/2 c. softened margarine
Mix all ingredients together, except egg. Add egg when crumbly. Press into ungreased 13x9 pan. Bake 14-16 minutes.
1+1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/3 c. powdered sugar
Mix together until smooth. Spread over warm chocolate crust. Sprinkle mini-marshmallows and crushed peanut butter cups. Broil 10-20 seconds until toasty brown.
