- Preheat oven to 350. Prepare, bake and cool brownies according to package directions. Cool completely and cut into squares.
- Heat vanilla and chocolate glaze according to bottle directions. Pour chocolate glaze into a shallow bowl wider than the brownie squares.
- Dip top surface of each brownie into chocolate glaze.
- Immediately pour thin horizontal lines across the brownie with vanilla glaze.
- Take a toothpick and drag it perpendicularly through the piped vanilla lines to create the Napoleon design.
- To create the Napoleon pattern, both chocolate and vanilla glazes need to be at the same temperature, right out of the microwave.
- You can also reverse the Napoleon pattern by dipping the brownie in vanilla glaze and piping chocolate lines over it.

What's your favorite thing about the recipe for the Napoleon Brownies?
I had never thought of creating that Napoleon-type swirl effect. The thing I was most thrilled with was that it's so simple!
What else would you do to dress up a brownie?
There are a lot of things you can do with brownies. You can give hints of orange flavor with orange extract to the actual brownies mix. So you have a chocolate-orange flavor. Or when putting the prepared brownie batter in the pan, use only about half of the batter. Lay chocolate bars in the middle; they can be white chocolate, or they could be filled chocolate. Then place the remaining batter on top, so that the chocolate bars are sandwiched in the middle. I have to tell you, they're unbelievable outrageous!
