Toffee Brownies~

Who doesn’t love a blog giveaway????  Especially when you WIN!  I have been the lucky recipient of some fabulous treats lately…you will hear about each of them in future posts. Not long ago, I won an Amazon gift card from my friend, Susan, who writes the lovely blog Create Amazing Meals.  We became friends through our French Fridays with Dorie posts…be sure to check out her posts as she always has something delicious cooking in her kitchen.


With my gift card, I purchased Bake! by Nick Malgieri, the baking guru.  When trying to decide which brownie recipe to use for these Toffee Brownies, I went to Nick’s book and quickly decided on his Florida Brownies…his take on Maida Heatter’s Palm Beach Brownies.  They did not disappoint…and if they aren’t rich enough for you, try adding a layer of chocolate bars in the middle…definitely sublime…

One brownie recipe for a 9 x 13 pan (homemade or box mix…I used Florida Brownies from Nick Malgieri*)
3 6-ounce Symphony chocolate bars, with almonds and toffee chips (I used 4 as I think the size has changed)

Line 9 x 13 pan with aluminum foil.  Grease foil with cooking spray. 

Prepare brownies as recipe or box states.  Spoon half of batter into prepared pan.  Smooth  batter to cover bottom of pan.  Place the candy bars side by side over batter.  Cover with the rest of the brownie batter.

Bake as directed on box or in recipe.  Cool completely, then remove from pan using foil to lift.  Cut and serve.

Brownies…adapted from Nick Malgieri’s Bake! 

8 ounces (2 sticks) butter
8 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
5 eggs, at room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 3/4 cups sugar
1 2/3 cups flour


Preheat oven to 375º.  Line 9 x 13 inch pan with non-stick foil or use regular foil and spray with cooking spray.


Melt butter and chocolate together in microwave…use 30 second increments, stirring frequently as to not over heat chocolate…till melted and smooth.  Set aside.


Combine eggs, vanilla and sugar in large bowl (add a large pinch of salt if using unsalted butter).  Using mixer, beat on high, scraping a few times, till very light and fluffy, for up to 10 minutes.  Add chocolate and mix in on low, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.  Sift flour into bowl and mix till just combined.

Scrape batter into prepared pan and bake for about 35 minutes…till toothpick inserted comes out with only a few moist crumbs.  If using for toffee brownies, this test won’t work due to the gooey chocolate in the middle.
