"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."
Whenever I taste these rich, delicious layered bars, I think of my childhood. My parents were missionaries in Thailand, and Mother was able to get these common ingredients there - the squares reminded us of the candy bars back home.

I teach in a school with 3-4 teachers per grade. I bake this cake in small springform pans so that each group can grab a cake before school and divide it among themselves later. Sometimes I slice the cakes into 3 or 4 slices and fill one layer with strawberry preserves or cherry pie filling.—Carleen Johns, Brownwood, Missouri
This scrumptious elegant cake is not tricky to prepare since it starts with a boxed mix. With its sweet syrup and fluffy chocolate frosting, it's very rich, so you can cut small slices and still satisfy a crowd.
