TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 package fudge brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size)
  • FROSTING:
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 2-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons hot water
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Stir in butter until combined. Press into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 10-11 minutes or until puffed and edges are lightly browned.
  • 2. Meanwhile, prepare brownie mix according to package directions for cake-like brownies. Spread batter over crust. Bake 25-30 minutes longer or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • 3. For frosting, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Immediately stir in the confectioners' sugar, 2 tablespoons water and vanilla until smooth. Add remaining water; stir until smooth. Immediately spread over brownies. Cool on a wire rack until firm. Cut into bars. Yield: 3 dozen.
