Frosted Double Decker Brownies

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling


3 dozen

I love to take the grandchildren searching for walnuts in the woods around our house. These bars are real people pleasers, especially among men.


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons whole milk


  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in walnuts.
  2. Divide batter in half. Stir chocolate into one portion; spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Spread remaining batter evenly over top.
  3. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool on a wire rack.
  4. In a microwave, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Stir in the confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to reach spreading consistency. Frost brownies; cut into bars.
