Mid Day Week Snack - Molten Lava Toffee Brownies

Who doesn't love Paula Dean? One weekend I was having a lazy morning and just decided to lay in bed and watch the food network.. and Paula was making her favorite BBQ meal... well its a good thing that I continued to watch even though I don't care for BBQ sauce because I watched her make my "go-to" dessert... its simple, easy and SIMPLY delicious!!!

Here is what you will need

Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix, which calls for
  • oil
  • 2 eggs
  • water
3 Large Candy Bars - we always use the Symphony Toffee Bars, but you can use anything you would like.

Mix the box just as directed

Spray a pan with cooking spray, and place half of the batter down in the dish
Then place the 3 large candy bars side by side in the dish

And then take the rest of your batter and spread it out on top

Follow the directions on the box for the baking directions. I think this one is 27-30 minutes at 350 degrees.

And when you cut into these delicious brownies this is what you get
If you serve this brownie warm it tastes like molten lava cake... its delicious! My favorite part about serving this to people is their reaction when they realize there is a toffee candy bar in the middle... and when I tell them how simple it is to make they are even more excited about the dish! ENJOY!

**a little side note - did you know that you should always cut bar cookies with a PLASTIC knife? it glides through the bar so much better than a metal knife ever would!**
