Chocolate Toffee Brownies


My family went to Rocky Pointe about a month ago. My sister in law Jennifer told me that a friend of theirs that came with them made like 3 different kind of brownies and that she had been eating them all weekend. Of course I was dying to get the recipes. Next to cookies, brownies are my best friend (sorry Jen...my BBFF (bloggin best friend forever), food will always win out over you) Did I just blog that out loud? So after much stalking, and text messages, I got my sister in law to tell me the recipe for the toffee brownies. You guys are going to be blown away at how easy these are...I know I was. And they were to die for.

I sent most of them to work with my hubby and he said that pretty much all the guys' reactions were "death by chocolate"...hhmmmmmm, is that good or bad? Well, whatever, I liked them and I'm the one that counts so here ya go. I would not recommend eating these if you plan on getting into a bathing suit anytime soon...since I don't plan on doing that in the near future, I ate like half a pan of these. (Well actually I leave for the beach in approximately 5 weeks...OMG...what was I thinking making these!!!?)


Chocolate Toffee Brownies

2 boxes of Brownie mix
(all the ingredients to make the brownies...oil, water, eggs, I'm sure you've all made a boxed brownie so you know the drill)

2 giant size Symphony bars (the ones with the little toffee bits in them) or 3 if you want eat one of them while your brownies bake...that's totally fine too







Mix your brownie mixes according to package direction (in seperate bowls)







Next line a pan with foil and spray it with cooking spray (this makes clean up a breeze and helps to get those gooey brownies out of the pan. Now, you want to pour your first brownie mix into the pan.



After you have scraped the bowl clean and pretty much licked it dry, layer the candy bars all together across the top. The best part about this...two of those little rows of chocolate didn't fit into my pan...oh bummer (munch munch munch)...okay, now where were we?






You know that second box of brownies you made? Well that batter wasn't for you to eat while this was cooking...so if you ate it, go make another box. Pour that batter mixture over the top of the candy bars.





Okay, at this point I would tell you how long to bake this for and at what temperature but of course stupid me threw away the brownie box and have no clue what the starting point was baking these or what the temp was. I wanna say 325 for 28 minutes but honestly...I have no clue.

So here's the dealio...look on the box for the 13x9 glass pan baking time and temp and bake for that time but add 15 to 20 minutes. Take them out and let them cool for like a good hour before you cut them because they are gooier than all get out, but if they are still not done in the middle, just eat out of the pan with a spoon...they're still good and I'm pretty sure the eggs are almost salmonella free...so you're good!

These are my girls favorite brownies! They beg me to make these constantly. They are really rich and delicious!

okay a few things...

#1 I could die right after eating one of them and be perfectly content with that being my destiny

#2 Symphony is my favorite candy bar (store bought candies anyhow)

#3 I think if we up'd the brownies to my favorite boxed kind...the triple chocolate ghiridelli (sp?) type...they'd be so rich...somebody might die from them

#4 and lastly...cut them after they've cooled completely with a plastic disposable knife and they will be the most perfect square goodies ever

Thanks! I'll be making these for sure...
