Symphony Candy Bar Brownies

Symphony Brownies

My husband is kind of funny . . .

I love to bake desserts and I am always looking for the next yummy recipe to try.
However, he just likes to stick to the basics.
Like really basic.
Like his favorite dessert that I make for him are plain brownies.
I am not even kidding!
So every once in a while, when I don’t feel like baking up a storm or I need him to do me a favor, I will whip up a batch of boxed brownies.
I stumbled across this recipe to jazz up plain ol’ boxed brownies and I knew I had to try it.
It was so easy to make and my husband was thrilled that it used brownies from a box. :)
If you feel like being domestic, you could use your favorite homemade brownie recipe and they would probably taste even more amazing!

Symphony Brownies
1 box of brownie mix for 9×13″ pan (or your own homemade brownie recipe)
Ingredients called for on brownie mix
3 large (4.25 oz each) Symphony candy bars with almonds and toffee chips


Mix the brownies according to box directions.  Spray a 9×13″ pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Pour 1/2 the brownie mix into the pan (it won’t seem like very much!).
Unwrap the 3 candy bars and place side by side on top of the batter in the pan.  Don’t break or chop up the candy bars – they will be whole.
Pour the remainder of the brownie mix over the top.
Bake according to directions on the brownie box.  Let cool, cut, and serve.

    The other day I saw a recipe that used York peppermint patties instead of the Symphony bars. I’m thinking the possibilities are endless! Good thing I buy brownie mix by the case. And brownies from a box happen to be my husband’s favorite dessert too.
