"I'm a 'nut' for sweet and salty, so I go for toasted pecans, coarsely chopped, stirred into the mix plus thick caramel sauce and crunchy pretzels. Pronto - a turtle brownie!"

"Lots of nuts! I also love adding extra chocolate chunks. I'll even just chop baking bars; they make little pockets of ooey-gooey goodness."
"We created these brownies for Betty Crocker's 2010 Fall Baking Magazine. They're full of cashews and chunks of dark chocolate candy bars...so good!"

"I love coffee, so I stir in a tablespoon of espresso powder into the brownie mix. It brings out the rich chocolate flavor. For extra indulgence, I'll add chopped nuts and bittersweet chocolate chips."
"For a quick chocolate and java fix, try Creamy Coffee Filled Brownies. You can cut them into one or two-bite sized squares or triangles for a tasty addition to a dessert buffet."
