Symphony Brownies

I am a huge fan of chocolate; the more chocolate the better in my opinion.  I was over at a friends house the other day when she showed me these brownies she had made.  Right when she pulled the cover off of the container my jaw dropped; they were the thickest brownies I think I've ever seen.  Not only was the brownie mix Ghirardelli, to top it off there were candy bars in the middle of the brownies.  I knew from the site I would be in heaven when I tasted them. 

From the first bite I was in awe and very addicted to these tastey treats.  Later on my husband came over and I was telling him about them; he just went on and on about them and how awesome they were.  He said they were some of the best brownies he's ever had.  This really means something coming from him because he's usually not a big fan of "rich" tasting desserts.  He seriously could not get enough of them. 

Since I have tried these brownies I've been on a kick of making them.  I went to visit my parents and when I told my mom about them we immediately went to the store to get the ingredients to make them.  It was love at first taste for my parents!  After we made them at my parents I made them to take with me and my husband to his birthday weekend...they were a hit there as well. 

This has to be one of my new favorite desserts.  It's so easy to throw together and so quick too.  Now that these have been tested on people of all "sweet" likings I figured they are very much "fan approved"!!!  Not that they wouldn't be a hit, because the recipe originated from Paula Deen.  Would we expect anything less than something so rich and tempting?  Now don't be shocked, there is no butter in this recipe anywhere but she definitely keeps up her reputations for rich and savory desserts by adding 3 Symphony bars! 


Symphony Brownies:


2 Boxes Ghirardelli brownie mix (I chose the double chocolate mix by Ghirardelli...made for a 9x9 pan)




3 Symphony Bars (I used the ones with almonds and toffee bits


Preheat oven to temperature indicated on box. 

Mix 1 box of brownie mix and pour in prepared 9x13 pan.  Unwrap the 3 candy bars and place on top of brownie mix in pan.  Mix the other box of brownies and pour over the candy bars. 

Place in oven and cook for 20-25 minutes, turn/rotate them and cook for additional 20-25 minutes. 

Recipe adapted from a friend and Paula Deen
