Hersheys Best Brownies

mmmmmm. It's Labor Day weekend and even though we've had no plans I am making brownies right now and crockpot french onion soup next :)

The brownies baked perfectly! Next time I might double it all so they turn out thicker. They are moist but not too sticky and the edges arent too crispy. Yum. I already have sampled one and we haven't had dinner yet.

Hersheys Best Brownies
from the Hershey website

Best Brownie

* 1/2 cup (1 stick) of 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
* 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I did not use)

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 9-inch square baking pan.
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.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan (I only baked about 18 minutes). Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into squares.

There is frosting that goes with these but I'm not making any frosting.
