    Karen67's Note:

    My mom made these brownies when I was a kid. They have a great oatmeal crunchy layer on the bottom topped off with frosted brownies. They look great on dessert tray too!

    4. 4
      Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. At this time, the crunchy layer will not be completely baked.

      Brownie Layer:.
    6. 6
      While the crunchy layer is in the oven, prepare the brownies as directed on the package (either fudge or cake style). The water, oil & eggs listed with the brownie layer here were for the Duncan Hines fudgy brownies. Adjust the ingredients to match your brownie mix.

    12. 12

      These were very good - a different twist on a brownie. It is hard to get the bottom layer out (and I even greased the pan) - but the crunch is worth it. I used 2, 20 oz pkgs of Hershey's triple chocolate brownie mix (just because it said to use two for a 9 x 13 pan) and I followed the package directions for mixing - the brownie turned out nice and high. In the original recipe, the amount of butter was missing (thank you Karen for emailing me back and editing the recipe) - so I guessed - wrongly- on the amount of butter and had to add more powdered sugar to thicken it up - but it turned out ok anyway - It's nice to get a different twist on a brownie.
