Fudge Brownies with the Volume turned up

Made a batch of brownies.  This is a very fudgy brownie from the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook with lots of yummy stuff mixed in.  I actually didn’t taste these, but everyone in my house did and they had rave reviews.  When you combine the best chocolate (callebaut), heath bar, toffee pieces, pecans and white chocolate, what could be so terrible?

The recipe makes a huge pan, which I always love, because it feeds a crowd.  I hate those brownie or bar recipes that calls for an 8 x 8″ baking pan.  Why go to all the effort and trouble for such a small batch.  I like to bake, create, package and give away.  8″ x 8″ – Pish Posh!

Make these and get creative. I have thin mint girl scout cookies in the freezer- can you imagine?  Be on the look out for something with a mint cookie accent!

I like to put in fridge before cutting.  It makes it easier and cleaner!
