The BEST brownies with this secret ingredient…

bestbrownies, fourth of july recipe

The trick to the best brownie recipe ever is using:

*Hershey Symphony Bars*

Honestly these are the most delicious brownies ever. After learning this brownie hack I will never go back to making brownies without using symphony bars. 


1 pack of brownie mix 

4 Hershey Symphony Bars

1 pack of Brownie baking cups, you can use standard ones like these, or cute ones like in the picture above, I got mine at Tuesday Morning.

Vanilla Ice cream or vanilla frosting 

Handful of Blueberries and Strawberries for decoration


Make brownies according to the box directions. Pour brownie mix into baking cups. During the last 10 minutes of baking, top brownies with squares of Hershey Symphony Bars. After brownies are done baking, let sit until warm. Top with scoop of ice cream and garnish with blueberries and strawberries. If using icing instead of ice cream, let brownies cool completely before topping with icing. Icing brownies can be made ahead of time and served later. Ice cream brownies need to be served immediately.

Alternative Recipe:

Cook in a standard baking dish. Pour half the brownie batter in the pan. Layer Hershey Symphony bars on top and then pour the rest of the brownie batter on top, then bake. These are the absolute most delicious brownies!

I love to serve these delicious brownies on my favorite MacKenzie-Childs tray as seen in the picture above!
