Double Brownies

We love brownies :) But it took me a while to find a recipe that wasn't just chocolate. I've made this one many times, and we quite enjoy it. Don't always add the icing - it doesn't really need it. Do you have a favorite brownie recipe you might want to share? :))

DOUBLE BROWNIES
2 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup butter or margarine

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Chocolate Layer: Beat 2 eggs until foamy. Add granulated sugar, flour, nuts and salt. Melt cocoa and butter together in saucepan over low heat. Add to egg mixture and blend well. Spread in greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Set aside.

Butterscotch Layer: in clean bowl cream butter with brown sugar. Add 2 eggs and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Add remaining ingredients. Stir. Spoon over chocolate layer in small blobs. Spread as best you can. Bake in 350F oven for 30 minutes until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool and frost.

ICING:
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
3 tbsp. milk
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
Bring butter, brown sugar and milk to boil in saucepan. Simmer for 2 minutes. Cool Stir in icing sugar, adding more sugar or milk if necessary to make consistency for easy spreading. Spread over cooled squares.

  3. I love nuts, but hubby isn't a fan. Solution? Make TWO pans!

  4. Oops!
    Forgot to mention - I don't usually add the nuts either - hubby has a slight allergy to them.
    The brownies are still really great without the nuts.
