    Sharlene~W's Note:

    A goodie Betty shared with the group at our annual rughooking retreat. Recipe originally came from the back of a Duncan Hines brownie box, but she decided she liked a Betty Crocker boxed brownie mix better. Cook time does not include time to cool. I thought the oatmeal layer might detract from the brownie, but it was a wonderful compliment.

      Excellent! These are rich, delicious, and easy. They slice cleanly so look pretty served on a tray or right out of the pan. I ended up cutting them a little larger than bite size for a dessert tray of asst bar cookies. Thank you for sharing a recipe I will use again!

      Thanks for sharing this recipe. This recipe is a nice change from the same old brownie.

      These are a nice, more-than-the-sum-of-its-parts dessert to have at home to take to someone's house. I used a jarred frosting that I wasn't too happy with; the next time I make these I will use a homemade frosting. And maybe some toasted coconut in the oatmeal layer!
