This brownie is always a big hit and is easy to make. I use two Duncan Hines Turtle Brownie mixes with the caramel packet. I mix the first batch (according to the fudgy brownie option), put it in the pan, then place 4 "license-plate" (the largest available) size Symphony bars with toffee and almonds side to side across the 9 x 13" pan, filling in any cracks. Then, cover with the second brownie mix, squiggle the caramel over the top and pull a serated knife down lengthwise to make a fun pattern. Be careful not to overbake. Will need to cool completely before cutting into small squares with sharp knife. Enjoy!

These should be illegal they are so good!! I used 2 1/2 symphony bars with toffee and almond pieces and used a Betty Crocker supreme brownie mix with hershey's syrup. Crazy delicious!!!

Truly delicious! It is surprising that you can get such a wonderful brownie by doctoring a brownie mix. I substituted 1/3 c buttermilk for the water and 1/2 cup melted butter for the oil. I also added 1 t. of vanilla and used a Pillsbury fudge brownie mix instead of Betty Crocker. My brownies were done after cooking for 35 minutes. I do not really like brownies that much...just made these for a book club meeting, but these are outstanding!

This is hands down my husbands favorite brownies in the whole world. It's so crazy rich that only a tiny bite is all you need to be satisfied!

I made this recipe using a dark chocolate brownie mix and also added in one can of cherry pie filling on topy of the candy bars before adding the final brownie layer. Dark chocolate brownies with milk chocolate and cherry filling. Yum! Thanks for posting!

Can't say enough superlatives for this recipe. I've probably overlooked this suggestion, but if not -- Symphony Toffee and Almond bars make a "hard to believe" grand slam in the bottom of the 9th impact on this simple recipe. One suggestion -- they are so rich than be cut in half the normal size of brownies and still be dazzling.

After a friend gave me this recipe I had to check and be sure that it was posted some where as it was so good! The only changes to the recipe that I made were I used 3 of the seven oz bars and I used a ghirardelli brownie mix with walnuts in an 11x13 pan. It doesn't look like enough batter but it bake up perfectly! They were the first dish gone at this yr's Holiday gathering!
