Triple Layer Brownies



These brownies are a triple treat with three layers of flavor and texture. The crunchy, buttery, oatmeal cookie-like crust is the perfect compliment to the tender, fine-crumb brownie inside. A soft, smooth, fudgy frosting gives a deeper layer of chocolate for a delicious finish.






Triple Layer Brownies


Crust layer
1 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Brownie layer
2/3 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs, slightly beaten

Frosting layer
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch salt



1. (Crust) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9" square baking pan and set aside. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the crust except the butter. Stir to combine. Drizzle melted butter over and stir to combine completely, mixing with hands if necessary. Press mixture evenly into bottom of greased baking pan and bake for 10 minutes. Remove to cooling rack.

2. (Brownie) In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir to combine. Set aside. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan over low heat, melt butter and chocolate, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in sugar, milk, vanilla, then eggs. Gradually stir flour mixture into chocolate mixture, 1/3 at a time, until smooth. Pour over crust.

3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the middle is set, and the edges start to pull away from the pan. Do not overbake. Set pan on wire rack to cool.


4. (Frosting) When brownies are cool, combine frosting ingredients in a medium bowl and beat with a hand mixer on medium until smooth. Smooth frosting over cooled brownies. Keep leftover brownies in an airtight container.
