With a creamy frosting and crunchy topping, these rich three-layer brownie bars are a decadent treat. “They're a cinch to assemble, but irresistible,” Annmarie Savage attests from Skowhegan, Maine. “Whenever I make them for someone new, they always want the recipe.”

"this is a great recipe! although I did make a couple changes, we don't often have cream cheese frosting on hand, so I took 1 (8oz.) cream cheese stirred until smooth and than added some powdered sugar and 1 container cool whip. I didn't add nuts either. These were great! definetly would make again!!"
