Hershey’s Best Brownies

I’ve been hanging on to an empty Hershey’s cocoa container for far longer than I care to admit simply because I didn’t want to lose this recipe. So long, plastic container. And thank you to the good folks at Hershey’s.

  • 2 C sugar
  • 2 t vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 C flour
  • 3/4 C cocoa
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 C chopped nuts (optional)
