The Best Brownines Ever
It was a library book so I didn't have it and I have been on Weight Watchers now for 8 weeks so I didn't even write any recipes down just in case I was having a weak day.
Friday we were having company and I thought it would be safe to make them as there were going to be lots of people here. Since I could only sort of remember the recipe this is what I did.
I bought a box of brownie mix. I followed the directions on the box. I put half of the mix in a 13 by 9 pan. Then on top of the brownies, I took two large Symphony candy bars and laid them across the brownie in the pan. Now I had only bought two and I remembered that I needed at least 4 to cover the whole pan. But thinking about this I took out a whole package of peanut butter chips and sprinkled them on the top of the candy bar. I then took the rest of the brownie mix and put it over the top of the candy bar and chips.
I had to bake it for 40 minutes because it was thicker.
Next time I would just use my own recipe for brownies. I was in a hurry so I bought the mix. I don't normally like mixes but with the additions of the candy bar and peanut butter chips, you couldn't taste that it was a mix.
They are very rich so I cut them in smaller pieces than I normally do, and being so rich tasting you only need a small taste. They are wonderful with coffee. Oh and yes, I did sample them. They are dangerous I admit.
I want to give credit to Joanne Fluke, it is her recipe. The book is called the Cream Puff Murder. I just finished the whole set of books. They are addictive, just like cookies. If you are on Weight Watchers I hope this doesn't make you stumble if you are not, then Happy Eating. :)
