This recipe came out of one of the local papers. Easy to make, and you will come home with an empty pan every time.

Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! This recipe is delicious! A keeper in my book...and my husband loved it, too! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because putting the remaining brownie batter on top of the chocolate chips, toffe pieces and rolos was next to impossible. Next time I will put all the batter on bottom with the rest of the yummy ingredients on top. I also added chopped pecans. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!
