Baking Sweet Melodies

There’s beautiful music being made in the kitchen today and it isn’t coming from our budding artists or the radio. Our oven contains a crescendo of yumminess that it’s heard before, but this time it has a whole new tune. We’ve changed a few notes of a classic to produce Melody Bars – Symphony Bars with a kick! These mocha toffee brownies will have you humming with satisfaction and glee! Yippee!

1 box dark brownie mix, plus ingredients on the back of the box

1 Starbucks Via

2 large (4.25 oz) Symphony candy bars with almonds and toffee chips

1 cup Heath bits

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom of an 9×13 baking dish.  Make brownie mix according to the directions on the back of the box. Stir in the Starbucks Via packet. Spread half of the batter into a prepared pan and place the candy bars side by side on top.  Cover with the remaining batter, smoothing with a spatula.  Sprinkle Heath bits evenly over the top and bake for 40-45 minutes.  Cool completely in pan on wire rack before cutting.

Sweet Spring?

What’s up with this weather? Yesterday it felt like summertime and now we’re back to winter. Guess we can’t hang up our parkas yet. One thing we never hang up is our aprons because Saturday means baking anytime of the year. And anytime is a great time to get creative with our standard oatmeal cookie recipe. Our Butter Brickle Oatmeal Cookies have just become our new favorite way to change things up. Maybe they will be your’s too!

Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Make the above recipe except substitute Heath Brickle for Heath Bits and leave out the chocolate and frosting. Sprinkle with sea salt (optional).
