I like brownies. A lot. So much that I have at least 5 different brownie recipes that I alternate and make pretty frequently. Now I'm going to have to add one to this! These were awesome. I brought these to a moms' meeting I went to, and they were devoured. Husband even had one and loved it, and he's not a huge fan of all things chocolate. These were also super easy to make, so I highly recommend them. Big chocolate taste, fudgy texture, and frosting - you just can't go wrong with these brownies!! Seriously, you can slap chocolate frosting on just about anything and it will taste awesome.
Hershey’s Best Brownies
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts(optional)
CREAMY BROWNIE FROSTING(recipe follows)
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 9-inch square baking pan. Or, make an aluminum foil sling for your pan, and grease that (makes frosting and cutting the brownies a little easier).
2. Stir together butter, sugar and vanilla in bowl. Add eggs; beat well with spoon. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to egg mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in nuts, if desired. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan.
3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Prepare CREAMY BROWNIE FROSTING; spread over brownies. Cut into squares. About 16 brownies.
