Symphony Brownies

There is no better way to finish off a busy week than with a weekend full of baked goods!  At work we saw the passage of two major pieces of legislation on the Hill, I handed in my final paper for one summer course, I celebrated my birthday, and then I celebrated a friend's birthday.

Paula Deen provided just what I needed...a chocolate crowd pleaser for my friend's b-day that didn't take much time which meant I could concentrate on my other more complicated recipe (will be posted soon).  This recipe is so easy I have confidence that even those afraid of the kitchen would be able to make it.  If you prefer not to use a box brownie mix you can simply substitute any homemade brownie recipe, but if you're in a time crunch using the box mix still produces an amazing result!    

Symphony Brownies
adapted from Paula Deen


1 box brownie mix (or any other brownie recipe)
3 (6-oz.) Symphony candy bars (with toffee and almonds)


Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan.  

Prepare the brownie mix according to the package directions.

Pour in half of the brownie batter and spread out to make sure it covers the entire pan.  Place the candy bars side by side on top of the batter. Pour in the remaining batter and make sure all candy bars are covered.

Bake according to package directions.  Let cool completely before slicing.
