Easy, Winner Brownies by Emily
They were really good and simple, which is key for me. Thought they might be a good candidate for the brownie bake off =)
Easy, Winner Brownies
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa or HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Cocoa
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
We stirred in some semi-sweet chocolate chips.
1 Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9x2-inch baking pan.
2 Place butter in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until melted. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with spoon after each addition. Add cocoa; beat until well blended. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat well. Pour batter into prepared pan.
3 Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Frost if desired. Cut into bars. About 36 brownies.
Note from Barbara: I made a batch last night to distribute to tasters. The only change I made was to use Dutch processed cocoa versus Hershey's. They came out great. Very similar to Tom's box version. Even Tom rated them a "10". Emily could have a winner!
