Hershey's Best Brownies

Hershey's Best Brownies

I found this recipe on the back of a pack of Hershey's cocoa powder (unsweetened). Made a batch for our church harvest festival, and it was a smash hit! The recipe couldn't be simpler. The brownies turned out to be dense, fudgy and with a lovely crust on top. I'm sure it would've tasted absolutely heavenly fresh out of the oven with a scoop of ice-cream, toasted nuts and drizzled with chocolate syrup.
