Ultimate Brownies

Ohh, I made the most awesome brownies today to take to a Super Bowl Party. They are from the “Hershey’s Best Loved Recipes” cookbook. I have made several recipes from this book it is a good book to have around when you get that chocolate craving. You will need a glass of milk to drink when you eat these brownies.

Here is the recipe:
Ultimate Chocolate Brownies
¾ c. cocoa
½ tsp. baking soda
2/3 c. butter, melted and divided
½ c. boiling water
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 c. flour
1 tsp. vanilla
¼ tsp. salt
1 c. chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease 13x9x2 inch baking pan
Stir together cocoa and baking soda in large bowl, stir in 1/3 c. butter. Add boiling water; stir until mixture thickens. Stir in sugar, eggs and remaining 1/3 c. butter stir until smooth.
Add flour, vanilla and salt; blend completely.
Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake 35-40min. until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan.
Cool and frost with chocolate butter cream icing.

Cocoa Butter Cream Icing
6 Tbsp. softened butter
2 2/3 powdered sugar
½ c. cocoa
4 – 6 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Beat butter in bowl add powdered sugar, cocoa and vanilla alternately with milk, beat till you have a spreading consistency.

There is a bit of story about this batch of brownies. Sometimes my head isn’t attached. I add a cup of water to the cocoa and had to double the batch but my daughter will be here later to help eat the second pan.

Have a great day and I hope your team wins the game .
