Hershey's Best Brownies

These really are the best brownies. I have been making the Deep Dish Brownies recipe from allrecipes, with some adjustments, for a while now and they had been my favorite. But I think they have been replaced. [EDIT: After making my Deep Dish Brownie recipe several more times, as well as this one, it has been decided that my Deep Dish Brownie recipe reigns supreme. Althought these are pretty yummy too :-)] I found the Hershey's recipe on Jessica's blog and I made them exactly the way she did. They were chewy and fudgy and wonderful. I made a second batch to take to my aunt's house yesterday and they were a big hit there as well. So here's the recipe the way Jessica (and I) made them.
Hershey's Best Brownie
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa (I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts(optional) (I did not add these)
  • CREAMY BROWNIE FROSTING(recipe follows) (I did not use the frosting)
  • as per Jessica's alterations, I also added about 2 tbsp of Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and about 1/3 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 9-inch square baking pan.

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 into 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.

Jessica used a 9" round pan. I did this as well, since I didn't have a 9" square pan

Oh, and here's a link to the original.


  1. Wow, those things look sooo chocolatey! Yum, I will have to give them a try.

  2. Mmm those look like a chocoholics heaven!

  3. Those look amazing! I'll have to fix some to take to my Mom for her birthday.

  4. I finally tried these! They are pretty darn good but I have to say, the deep dish brownies are still my favorite!
