I had to dig deep into the archives to find this recipe. I originally shared this recipe only a few months after starting my blog, almost 8 years to the date on Nov. 25, 2007. The post was short and sweet and there were no photos with the original post! It was totally in need of a redo!
Here is what the original post said:
“Several of you have asked me why I started a blog. Well – six months ago I had no idea what a blog was until I visited the website of a friend of mine. My friend had started an online yarn store specializing in sock yarn. Now I am not a knitter and didn’t even know there was such a thing as sock yarn but I love visiting Sheri’s website and blog -not because I’m a knitter (but if you are – this is an awesome site) but because I love reading Sheri’s blog where she shares her life, ideas and on Fridays she always shares a recipe! I make sure I always visit on Fridays to check out the newest recipe. So Sheri was my inspiration for starting a blog – and sharing recipes!”
One of the recipes she featured on her blog is the one I am sharing with you today for Symphony Brownies. It was actually the first brownie recipe I ever shared on the blog. This recipe is a quick one as it uses a brownie mix and candy bars! Fast, easy and so many calories!! Yum!! Mix up your brownie mix according to the directions on the box. Spread half of the batter on a greased 9 x 13 pan (line with foil first to make removal easier). Then place the 3 Symphony candy bars on top of the batter.
Spread the remaining batter on top of the candy bars and bake.
Every time I have made these brownies they disappear. You use Symphony candy bars – I used the one with the toffee bits and almonds but they can also be made with the plain milk chocolate version.
The Cookie Jar – Symphony Brownies and True Confessions!
- 1 box of brownie mix for 9 x 13 pan
- 3 Symphony candy bars with almonds and toffee chips
- Mix the brownies according to box directions (I use the cakelike brownie instructions).
- Line a 9 x 13 pan with tinfoil and spray with cooking spray (makes for easy clean-up).
- Pour 1/2 the brownie mix into the pan.
- It is not much.
- Place the 3 candy bars(wrappers removed of course) side by side on top of the mix.
- 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.
- Let cool and lift the tinfoil out of the pan.
- Cut and serve.
