Tasty Tuesday: My Hubby's Favorite Dessert

While I am a lover of pies, cakes, and cookies, my hubby is not. I can make the most wonderful dessert, he will eat one piece, and then it would sit there until it grew a beard on it.

I, on the other hand, might let him finish his one piece and then devour the rest in the next three of four days...okay, okay, that same night.

This was true in our home until Symphony Brownies came on the scene. Another wonderful Paula Deen recipe that made my hubby FINALLY have a favorite dessert.

Here is what you need:

1 Family Size Brownie Mix (you can use any brand or flavor you like)
3 Symphony candy bars (I prefer the ones with toffee and almond chips in them, but you can also use the plain chocolate ones.)

First, make the brownie mix according to the package directions for cake-like brownies (usually that means just adding an extra egg).

Mmmmm...brownie mix, so chocolatey and good!

Next, line a 13x9 baking dish with aluminum foil and spray the foil with cooking spray.

Pour half of the brownie mix into the baking dish.

Next, lay the three Symphony candy bars on top of the brownie mix.

Yep, you know where I'm going with this, don't ya? Now pour the rest of the brownie mix on top of the candy bars.

Bake according to the package directions. Then lift the aluminum foil out of the dish and let cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes.

Cut into pieces and serve.

That added layer of chocolate makes ordinary brownies into something AMAZING!

Just ask my ambivelent dessert-eating hubby.

Plus, practically no clean up. Just throw that aluminum foil away...unless you are my grandmother who still washes aluminum foil and keeps it in a drawer in her kitchen and reuses it until it tears. The result of living during the Depression, I assume. Does anyone else's grandmother do that? (Sorry, rabbit trail there.)
