Hmmm, so this is the 2nd batch of what I call, "The Symphony Bars". I was reading Mandy's blog and she featured Blondie Bars however she didn't have the recipe - therefore I searched for the recipe and was SO excited to find it. The pictures of her making it made my mouth water and I needed, REALLY needed to make this treat. The recipe I found was for just a Blondie Bar, no additions such as chocolate or nuts, so I added my own flare, Symphony Chocolate Bars, hence the name. This is SO easy to make and the ingredients should already be in your pantry. I suggest when you make this, eat it right after you pull it out of the oven with a scoop of Vanilla ice-cream. Yes, girls, it's THAT good.
Enjoy and thanks for the inspiration Mandy!
8 tablespoons of butter, melted (Iused margarine this time and there is a HUGE difference, so use the real stuff)
1 cup of brown sugar
1 egg, room temp if you can
1 teaspoon of vanilla or 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract
pinch of salt
1 cup of flower
8x8 pan, buttered
Add vanilla and beat again.
Add salt and flour.
Take two Symphony bars and break up into big chunks with a knife.
Add to the batter.
I had walnuts in my pantry, so I added a handful to the batter as well. This is optional.
Pour into the 8x8 pan and bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until set in the middle.
Serve with ice-cream or eat alone with a glass of cold milk.
