The Recipe How-To

Step 1: Preheat Oven and Prep Baking Dish

Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9×13 inch (23 x 33 cm) baking dish with cooking spray or butter. This will prevent the brownies from sticking to the bottom of the dish.

Step 2: Make Brownie Batter

In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 boxes of fudge brownie mix, 3 eggs, 1 and 1/4 cups (312 ml) of water, and 1/2 cup (125 ml) of vegetable oil. Mix everything together until you get a smooth batter.

Step 3: Add Symphony Bars

Unwrap 3 Hershey’s Symphony chocolate bars and break them into smaller pieces using your hands. You can also use a kitchen knife for this task.

Step 4: Layering

Pour half the brownie batter into the greased baking dish and even it out using a spatula. Then add a layer of Symphony chocolate pieces, making sure that the bars cover the entire layer of brownie batter. Pour the remaining brownie batter on top of the Symphony candy bar layer and evenly spread again.

Step 5: Bake

Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the baking dish.

Step 6: Cool and Serve

Once cooked, remove from oven and let cool down completely before cutting into squares. Serve your thick & chewy Symphony Brownies with a sprinkle of powdered sugar on top, whipped cream or along with a delicious scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Substitutions and Variations

Let’s face it, brownies are a favorite for many people, but sometimes you just want to switch things up. That’s where substitutions and variations come in handy. Here are some suggestions to take your Symphony brownies recipe to the next level:

– Toffee Candy: A great addition to the Symphony candy bars. The crunchiness of the toffee complements the chewy texture of the brownies. Try replacing some or all of the chocolate chunks with almond toffee or even popcorn.

– Mix-Ins: Looking to add more flavor to your brownies? Consider mixing in some extra ingredients. Dark chocolate chips, walnuts, caramel bits, or white chocolate chunks all make excellent choices.

– Nut Butters: If you’re a fan of peanut butter cups or other nut butter treats, why not create that flavor in your Symphony Brownies? Swirl some creamy peanut butter into the batter before baking.

– Frosting: Add an extra layer of decadence by frosting your Symphony Brownies with fudge icing, cream cheese frosting or any other frosting of your choice.

– Gluten-Free Alternative: For those who require a gluten-free diet, consider using gluten-free flour instead of regular flour. Also be sure to check that your brand of boxed fudge brownie mix is gluten-free.

No matter what substitutions and variations you make, just be sure to have fun experimenting with these Symphony Brownies and come up with a combination that you love best!

Serving and Pairing

I’ve never been one to hold back when it comes to serving up a sweet treat, and these Symphony Brownies are no exception. They’re rich, indulgent, and oh-so-decadent, which makes them perfect for sharing with friends, family, and even co-workers.

When it comes to pairing these brownies with a beverage, there are a few options that I think work particularly well. First on the list is a piping hot cup of coffee; the bitterness of the coffee complements the richness of the chocolate in the brownies beautifully. Alternatively, if you’re more of a tea drinker, I’d recommend brewing up a pot of Earl Grey or Chai tea; both have enough flavor to stand up to the intense sweetness of the brownies.

If you really want to go all-out with your Symphony Brownie serving game, try topping each brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream just before serving. The cold creaminess of the ice cream is the perfect contrast to the thick and chewy texture of the brownies, making for an unforgettable dessert experience.

No matter how you choose to serve up your Symphony Brownies, I promise they’ll be a hit. So go ahead and get baking – your taste buds (and possibly even your loved ones) will thank you.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

For those who love to plan ahead, these Symphony Brownies make the perfect make-ahead dessert. Once baked and cooled, these brownies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

If you want to store them for a longer period of time, you can freeze them for up to 1 month. Simply wrap the brownies tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil before placing them into a freezer-safe bag. When you’re ready to enjoy them again, leave them at room temperature for a few hours.

When it comes to reheating, there are a few options available. One way is to reheat individual portions in the microwave for 10-15 seconds, depending on how many brownies you’re reheating. The microwave method is ideal if you prefer soft and gooey brownies.

Another option is to reheat the entire pan in the oven. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C), cover the pan with foil and bake for around 10-15 minutes until the brownies are warm and slightly gooey again. This method is perfect if you’ve stored your brownies in the fridge or freezer and want to bring them back to their fresh out of the oven goodness.

Regardless of how you choose to store and reheat your Symphony Brownies, they’re sure to be a crowd-pleaser every time they’re served up. Pro tip: Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of each warm brownie for an extra tasty treat!

Tips for Perfect Results

To get the perfect symphony brownies, it’s important to keep in mind some tips that will help you achieve a delicious treat. From the mix to the symphony candy bar, here are my top tips for creating these thick, chewy, and fudgy brownies:

Firstly, when adding the water to your brownie mix, start with a small amount of water and gradually add more as needed. The goal is to make sure the batter is thick and not too runny. The consistency should be just pourable.

Secondly, when mixing the eggs, don’t overbeat them. Just mix them enough to break up the yolks and whites. Overbeating can result in a tough brownie that’s not as tender and moist as it should be.

Thirdly, use vegetable oil instead of butter in this recipe. Vegetable oil will give you fudgier brownies than butter. Butter produces a cake-like texture that does not work well with this recipe.

Fourthly, after adding half of the batter to your baking dish, place a single layer of Symphony bars on top. Then, cover the entire layer with remaining batter. By doing this, you’ll ensure that the candy bar layer is evenly distributed within each slice.

Fifthly, preheat your oven before baking! Preheating will ensure that your oven reaches the desired temperature before you put your brownies inside.

Lastly, don’t overbake your symphony brownies because they will dry out fast. Check them at 25 minutes by inserting a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean, remove the pan from the oven immediately!

By following these tips, you’ll get perfect symphony bar brownies every time. Enjoy!

In conclusion, the Symphony Brownies recipe is a must-try for any baking enthusiast or dessert lover. With its combination of rich chocolate flavor and delectable almond toffee candy, these brownies are sure to become a crowd favorite.
