What's Good With A Glass of Milk? (Brownies)!

I've been in the baking mood lately and was thumbing through my old wooden recipe box when I came across a recipe that sounded good. Brownies are always a treat and and this recipe came off the back of a Hershey's Cocoa package that I had torn off years ago. It's so easy and tastes even better than the pre-packaged box mixes. Very moist and chocolatey! They are great with a cold glass of milk too - or a cup of hot tea or coffee. Enjoy!

1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 eggs
3/4 Hershey's Cocoa
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Heat over to 350 degrees. Grease 13x9x2 inch pan. Microwave butter at high for 2 to 2-1/2 minutes or until melted. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add cocoa, flour, baking powder and salt; beat until well blended. Stir in nuts, if desired. Pour batter into pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides. Cool completely. Makes about 36 brownies.

Guess what? I couldn't wait to eat one so cut them when they weren't quite cool enough!


  1. This sounds like a delicious recipe. I'm going to pin it to my recipe board, so we can try it later. I like that it makes enough for a 13 x 9 pan. My brownie recipes only make enough for a square pan.

  2. Thanks Brenda! I think your family will like them. They are moist and makes a lot of brownies.
