If you are not a fan of stuffing awesome food into more awesome food, this post is definitely not for you.
For the rest of you (a.k.a. America), welcome! Today your peanut butter will be served in the middle of a light fluffy roll. With a Hershey bar piece on top. Why? I don’t know. It just seemed like a good idea at the time!
You know what also seems like a good idea? Digital downtime. You know, spending time away from the phones and iPads (I love you, iPad, don’t listen to me right now) and social media. But maybe that’s just because I’m afraid of social media.
You have to believe me: when it comes to social media, I am completely incompetent. There’s something that everyone else gets about making friends online and being popular that I just…don’t. I’m not sure what it is. Maybe my ability to make friends is restricted to real life alone. You know, because then I can win them over with my fun facial expressions and quick wit. Online, I don’t stand a chance.
In some ways, being on social media is just like being in middle school, only worse. People are constantly checking to see who likes them. Er, I mean, their posts. But it’s very much the same thing. That constant reassurance is, I am firmly convinced, unhealthy. If I didn’t run a baking blog, you can be sure I would not be on social media.
But that’s probably why I suck at it. I’ve never been comfortable with it, and that must be shining through somehow. I love baking, I love writing, I love people, and I love sharing. But all the rest of it just makes me feel like the kid who didn’t get invited to the party. Deep down, I think we’re all still 10 years old.
When I was 10, I ate peanut butter on fluffy white rolls pretty much every day. I did that for years. And sometimes, feeling like a kid can be a good thing. These rolls are one of those times.
This recipe is as basic as they come. You put a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter in between two refrigerated biscuit rounds, pinch the ends together, and bake. Unless you want to press a Hershey’s chocolate piece on the top first. I had to. I like a little chocolate with my peanut butter!
This is basically the best roll ever with a peanut butter surprise in the middle. It’s really great for snacks when you want something that isn’t quite a meal, but is halfway in between. I recommend.
As for the whole social media thing, I don’t know what to say about that. If you want to help me become better at it, I welcome you! Until that happens, I remain confused. With baked goods in hand!
Stuffed Peanut Butter Rolls
1 tube refrigerated biscuits, any brand (I used Trader Joe's)
1 cup peanut butter
1 Hershey bar
- Preheat the oven to 350. Line an 8-inch square pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Set aside.
- Open the refrigerated biscuits according to package directions. Peel them apart until you have 18 circles.
- Fill half with a tablespoon or two of peanut butter. Press the other half on top and seal the edges. Repeat the process with all nine rolls.
- If desired, press a single Hershey bar piece into the center of each roll.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes until the rolls are puffed up and golden. Serve warm or at room temperature.
