Two brownie recipes within one week? Let me explain. Do you ever get in a funk? Ya know when everyone and everything pretty much annoys you for no apparent reason. Well, I have been in this funk for about a week and the only cure I could come up with was… chocolate.
More specifically rich brownies with a milk chocolate toffee candy bar baked into the center. Yeah, Symphony Brownies will cure a mood like no other.
If you frequent My Baking Addiction on a regular basis, you may recall that I’m not especially fond of chocolate, but there is something about these brownies that makes me swoon. I’m pretty certain that something is the ooey gooey center that is imparted by the Symphony candy bars. These Symphony Brownies couldn’t be easier and I’m guessing the only items you’ll have to pick up from the market are the Symphony candy bars.
So, here’s to a good a week! Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
