Frosted Double Decker Brownies

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

    As the recipe's title suggests, these do go over very well with boys and men. When I made them, that is not to say they were not enjoyed by everyone. :) After taking them to a friends house, I was asked for the recipe.
