Years ago, my children and I came up with these bars by combining two of their favorite treats. With a crisp cookie crust and a fluffy frosting, these brownies are the most requested treats at our house.
With a perfect creamy frosting and just a touch of almond flavor, these easy-to-make brownies really are something special. Keep a can of chocolate syrup on hand for this delectable treat! —Didi Desjardins, Dartmouth, Massachusetts
"Now that I'm retired and a new grandmother, I'm always looking for special treats to serve my grandchildren," says Bobi Raab of St. Paul, Minnesota. "These brownies have a rich chocolate taste and yummy brown butter frosting."
Decorated with names or not, LaTressa Allen's treats have rich fudge flavor and a gooey marshmallow layer that'll surely be a hit with your family. "Mine, for one, absolutely loves chocolate," she chuckles from Fort Worth, Texas. "I'm constantly trying new desserts with that ingredient—and have found these brownies please young and old alike."
Some of the strawberry jam I put up every year makes its way into these brownies. I like to bake up a batch as a special treat for the learning-disabled students I teach. My husband and three sons enjoy them, too. —Teresa Jansen, Advance, Missouri
These scrumptious brownies get dressed up with a delicious browned butter frosting. The combination is delightfully different and assures they vanish fast around the house or at a party.

"I came up with these fudgy peanut butter brownies when I ran out of ingredients I needed for my usual recipe," relates Marcella Cremer of Decatur, Illinois. "They take less than 10 minutes to mix up."
