Well I must say with all of this bad weather and being stuck inside, I’m thankful we made our freezer meals ahead of time! We’ve had the food we’ve needed and are so blessed to be safe. Many have lost so much and others have lost everything, due to Harvey. Fortunately we did not and have not lost power. We took care of the Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup, Ranch Chicken Tacos, and Chicken Enchiladas in our freezer.
Along with Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup I brought to work, I also brought Symphony Brownies! So tasty with a hint of crunch from the toffee bar. How much more simple can you get than a box of brownies with 2 chocolate bars in the middle?
2 Symphony chocolate bars
1 box of fudge brownie mix
1. Make brownie mix according to directions on back of brownie box.
2. Fill half of pan with brownie batter.
3. Break Symphony bars into squares and spread evenly on top of brownie batter.
4. Pour remaining batter on top of bars and be sure the bars are covered completely.
5. Bake according to directions on box. Allow time to cool, the cut.
1 box brownie mix
10 Oreos, crushed
1/4 cup royal icing
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
1 piping bag or ziploc bag
1. Bake brownies according to directions on back of box.
2. In the meantime, crush oreos, chop walnuts, and make icing. (I like to have icing in the fridge on hand.)
3. After taking Brownies out of oven, top with Oreos and walnuts, then drizzle icing on top by placing icing in bag and cutting small hole in corner of ziploc or at end of piping bag.
4. Allow time to cool and icing to harden before cutting to serve.
Enjoy! Top with vanilla ice cream for extra deliciousness!
For special occasions, you can make Oreo brownies look stunning for gifted baked good with cookie cutters. I’ve made them for Valentine’s Day before using a heart shaped cookie cutter, and they turned out so cute! I would make thinner brownies to do this by using a more rectangular pan than a square 8″x8″ or 9″x9″.
