symphony brownies.....





I feel kinda stupid posting this "recipe" because its not really a recipe and its so simple. We had a baby shower to attend 2 weeks ago, so I whipped these up( along with muffaletta sandwiches) the night before. Just use your favorite brownie recipe for an 9 inch square pan( or a mix which is what I did). Ghiradelli makes a great mix, but its not sold in Canada. I used a Duncan Hines family size 9 x 13 mix, but baked it in a 9 x 9 square pan( so they're thicker). I subbed out coffee for the water and part almond oil for some of the canola oil. You could even use melted butter instead of oil.

Pour out half your batter and then layer in 2 family size Hershey Symphony Chocolate bars( I dont know if they're sold in Canada, I bought them for 1.00 each at Walgreen's in MI). In the picture above, you see a little square of chocolate missing. I took a little taste. Symphony comes in two flavors. Plain and an almond toffee. You want to use the almond toffee so you gets bits of both of those flavors. Pour the other half of the batter over the top and bake as directed. I refridgerated them overnight for easing cutting. They were polished off within a matter of minutes. They're really good and super easy.

Those look delicious! I love ideas on how to "dress up" box mixes. Sometimes you don't have time to make it from scratch, but with a little imagination you can make something amazing from a mix.

These look really good, I love symphony bars. There's a bakery around here that sells brownies with toffee in the middle, it's a similar concept.

How come you always make stuff look so great and easy? I have a request for brownies from some kids at a homeless shelter where my assistant is a volunteer. I would need to make 2 pans (9 x 13) each to have enough for all the kids there :(

Do you think that the recipe would be OK if I just multiplied it x 2 in each 9 x 13 pan?

Yes, double it. I just wanted them thick so I used a 9inch pan. I used a family size( 9x 13) mix, you can double that or make them thinner.
