The time is always right to do what is right ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
I awoke to a strange noise this morning. OK, it was 8:00 a.m but I was still hoping to sleep in a little longer. It turns out the noise was the sound of a "do not park" sidewalk sign being collapsed and thrown in the back of a truck over and over. The Sony Open was on this weekend near my house and I guess they were doing a little housekeeping.
After a quick breakfast I decided it was a great day for baking. I always have a list of recipes I want to try but today I was asked to bake brownies by one of my daughters. To make them a little different I though I would add a layer of Kit Kat chocolate bars. I purchased the two of the King Size Kit Kat's that contain 12 bars per packet. For a 9x13 pan I used 16 individual Kit Kat bars. After covering the bottom of the brownie pan with non-stick baking paper I added a layer of brownie mix. I then added two even layers of Kit Kats, and topped them with another layer of brownie mix.
Now for the confession. I used a box mix to make these brownies. A friend of mine used to own a coffee shop and she had the most incredible brownies for sale. I asked her one day what the secret was to her moist, chocolaty brownies and she confessed that she bought the Ghirardelli mix in bulk from Costco. From that time on I also purchased the Ghirardelli Chocolate Triple Chocolate - Semi-Sweet, Milk, Bittersweet - Brownie Mix from Costco to make my brownies. It works for me but please feel free to substitute your favorite brownie recipe.
So, there is no official recipe for these brownies but here is what I did. I used two packets of brownie mix so that I could have enough to make a bottom layer and to cover the top layer of Kit Kats, and followed the directions on the box. As I mentioned above I used one and a half packets of the King Size Kit Kat packets (16 sticks). They baked for 50 minutes and they were pretty darn good, even if I do say so myself.
