Symphony Brownies AKA Bybeth's TO DIE FOR BROWNIES

I think I told you that my dear great-aunt passed away this summer.  She was a precious little Cadillac-driving, country club-dining, feisty Texas LADY.  A true lady.  I'm pretty sure she never owned a pair of jeans.  She did her gardening in slacks.  Although I did not inherit her green thumb, I am proud to say that she and I shared a love for reading, cooking and entertaining.  I was fortunate enough to spend a few days with my cousins the week of her funeral.  We had a good time looking through photos, and reminiscing about our childhood.  Let's just say a beer and a glass of wine or two might have been consumed.  My cousin Amy's friend Bybeth graciously brought over some snacks and smartly advised us to "hide the brownies until the company was gone."  She wasn't kidding.  These are the best brownies I've ever had.  She said they were named Symphony Brownies, after the candy bar they are filled with.  We unanimously agreed they should be re-named Bybeth's To Die For Brownies.  They are surprisingly simple, but seriously to die for!

Trust me, these brownies are
To Die For!
Prepare both boxes of brownie mix. 
Layer half of batter into a greased
9x13-inch pan.
Top with the three candy bars.
Layer remaining batter over candy bars.
Bake.  Allow to cool completely
before cutting into squares.
I made these to take to my mother who had pneumonia,
my mother-in-law who broke her ankle,
and my aunt just because I love her.
Along with homemade chicken noodle soup.
I could not have an entire batch of these
delicious brownies just sitting around the house!

Too Tempting!  Thanks a lot Bybeth!
