Combining Some Sweets

When asked what would you choose if you were stranded on a deserted island and could only have one thing to eat, we first clarified that this is a deserted island and not a “dessert” island. Nonetheless, our answer is ultimately the same. BROWNIES! We love us some brownies. And even more, we love experimenting with our brownies by adding in different ingredients to make them just a bit more rich and delicious. This Saturday we are trying a combination of Hershey’s Cookies and Cream candy bar bits and Symphony candy bar pieces. White chocolate, Oreos, milk chocolate, almonds, and toffee mixed into our most favorite treat of them all. Here’s to being stranded in our kitchen baking this scrumptious treat!

Combined Candy Bar Brownies 

Ingredients
2 boxes of your favorite brownie mix (plus ingredients on the back of the box)

1 large Hershey’s Cookies and Cream Bar 

1 large Symphony Bar

Directions

Make both brownie mix boxes according to directions on the back of the box. Pour half into a 9 x 13 greased pan. Sprinkle broken pieces of the Cookies and Cream Bar and the Symphony Bar on top of the brownie batter in the prepared pan. Pour the remain brownie batter over the top of the candy bars. Bake  brownies for 35-45 min according to how gooey you like them.

Getting Nutty is Sweet

We’re at it again…we’re doctoring up a box of brownies. This time we are using Trina’s husband’s favorite go-to sweet treat, Nutella, or Nut-Ella as we like to call it around here (inside joke, totally not worth going into!). For years we were opposed to the stuff. Not sure why. BUT once we finally gave in, there was no stopping us from dipping, spooning, and creating with this pure deliciousness in a jar! This is surely one of the easiest recipes we’ve ever made. Simply mix up a box of brownie batter, pour it in a pan, and drizzle Nutella all over it. The more the better we say! How about going even crazier and topping with Heath Bits and broken pieces of Symphony Bar before baking.  Then finishing it off with ice cream, and whipped cream. We’re NUTTY  like that!
