Prep 15 mins Bake 35 mins
Trilevel Brownies
  • 1/2  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1  cup  quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1/2  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/4  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/2  cup  butter, melted
  • 1  egg
  • 3/4  cup  granulated sugar
  • 2/3  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  cup  milk
  • 1/4  cup  butter, melted
  • 1  ounce  unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1/4  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/2  cup  chopped walnuts
  • 1  ounce  unsweetened chocolate
  • 2  tablespoons  butter
  • 1 1/2  cups  sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon  vanilla
  •  Walnut halves (optional)

1. For bottom layer, stir together oats, the 1/2 cup flour, the brown sugar, and baking soda. Stir in the 1/2 cup melted butter. Pat mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 11x7x1-1/2-inch baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree F. oven for 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, for middle layer, stir together egg, granulated sugar, the 2/3 cup flour, the milk, the 1/4 cup melted butter, 1 ounce melted chocolate, the 1 teaspoon vanilla, and the baking powder until smooth. Fold in chopped walnuts. Spread batter over baked layer in pan. Bake about 25 minutes more or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Set on a wire rack while preparing top layer.

3. For top layer, in a medium saucepan heat and stir 1 ounce chocolate and the 2 tablespoons butter until melted. Stir in the powdered sugar and the 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in enough hot water (1 to 2 tablespoons) to make a mixture that is almost pourable. Spread over brownies. If desired, garnish with walnut halves. Cool completely on wire rack. Cut into bars. Makes 32 brownies.
