Really good and liked the oatmeal "cookie" bottom. A new twist on the traditional brownie. Perhaps I was doing something wrong with frosting, however. Was not able to "drizzle" it as the recipe suggests. In fact, it was so dry and crumbly I had to add milk, then just spread it on with a spatula. Still quite good and will make again.
Okay, I only made the bottom layer and put regular brownie mix on top, but the bottom layer itself was too bland for my taste. The butter flavor overpowered the oatmeal, and it tasted like, well, buttery oatmeal, instead of that nice caramel-y oatmeal cookie flavor I look for. I would add some cinnamon, or carmelize the brown sugar with the butter before mixing with the dry ingredients.
There is one thing missing from the icing recipe and that is to add enough hot water (I boil some) to make a spreading consistency. My family love them and I take them everywhere I am asked to bring a dessert.
Great variation on the basic brownie. However I agree with the last reviewer that the glaze is not a true glaze as it's hard and crumbly. I added 1 tablespoon of milk at a time until I got a runnier consistency.
When I think of brownies, I think soft choclate. These were not either. Not completly bad though.
These were pretty good. Again, the frosting is not frosting at all, but they are still good without it. I'd add some chocolate chips or something though, I need more in my chocolate fix :)
What happened to the icing? It turned out a crumbly mess. I ended up adding more melted butter and part of a hershey's bar to thin it out. Even then, it was more of a chocolate spread. This was ok though, it satisfied my need for chocolate.
They were ok. The topping needs work.
