Symphony Bar Brownies

a friend told me this recipe for Symphony Bar Brownies a couple of years ago and it has been a huge hit every time i make them. i love the gooey-ness of the brownies & the candy bar center.
i showed them on Instagram a little while ago but never shared the recipe so i thought today would be a good day to share some sweet, chocolately goodness!

here's what you need: 
+ 2 brownie mixes {or you can make them from scratch if you are feeling brave :)}

preferably 3 Symphony bars {I accidentally only bought two last time I made them but it still worked.  But usually you need 3 for a 13x9 pan}

1. preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. mix first brownie mix according to the instructions on the box. pour into 13x9 pan.

3. layer Symphony bars on top of the first brownie batter.

4. mix together second brownie mix according to box instructions. pour batter on top of Symphony bar layer.

5. cook brownies in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes or until the middle is cooked through. you can check by inserting a knife or a toothpick in the center and it should come out clean.

6. while brownies are cooking, relax and lick the batter off the spoon :)

7. take brownies out of oven and let them cool for about an hour so the Symphony bars can harden a little bit in the middle. if you want them meltier, you don't have to wait as long.

when they are done, they will look something like this: {except I couldn't take a good picture of them cause I stink at food picture skills}

if you try this recipe i would love to hear what you think of it! or if you have any other candy bar suggestions to use instead of Symphony bars.
