Tri- Level Brownies

As requested by Michelle!

Tri-Level Brownies

Bottom Layer:
1 1/2 c. flour
3/4 t baking soda
3 sticks melted butter
3/4 t. salt
1 1/2 c brown sugar
3 c. rolled oats (uncooked)

Mix together to form a "meal" and press into a greased jelly roll pan Bake at 350 degrees for ONLY 10 min.

Middle Layer:
3 1oz square unsweetened chocolate melted
1 1/2 c butter, softened
3/4 t. baking powder
3/4 t. salt
2 1/4 c sugar
3 egg
2 c flour
1 t. vanilla
1 1/2 c chopped walnuts (if you like that sort of thing!)

Combine chocolate, butter and sugar. Add egg and beat well. Add flour, baking powder, salt, and vanilla. Mix well. (Add nuts now if using them). Spread over bottom layer and return to oven and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Top Layer:
If you have a favorite chocolate frosting then go with it. If not this one turns out great!

4 1/2 c powdered sugar
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 c butter, softened
1/3 c milk
2 t vanilla

Combine all together and top when the 2nd layer has completely cooled. You will have left over frosting, this you can freeze for other baked goods!

***A few notes!***

This recipe is TRIPLED! So it makes for a great thing to take for larger groups! You can reduce it easily (if you can remember fractions from 5th grade), and bake in a 9x13 pan.

Always keep an eye on your baking when trying a new recipe so that you don't over/undercook and these delicious brownies turn out to be a failure!

ALSO to make any recipe a real HIT use real vanilla extract...not the imitation stuff. I REALLY like Watkins Brand extract, and I can find it at Wal-mart usually cheaper than the other stuff!

ENjoy and good luck!
