Hershey's Best Brownie

We had company coming, dinner was taken care of but....dessert?  To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title.
 All the Petite Macaroons Cups with Almonds were just about gone.  I needed something quick, delicious and FAST!  This brownie recipe filled all those requirements.  I didn't have my square 9 inch baking pan available. Since moving to Kentucky some of my baking pans are still being stored, so I made this in a round pan.  With only two of us in the house, I was happy this recipe was just our size!  My husband isn't crazy about chocolate, but Hershey certainly won him over with this recipe. He loved it! The brownie is very moist and chocolatey, the frosting is outrageously good!  I don't think I've ever made a Hershey Chocolate recipe I didn't like.   The recipe comes together fast, perfect for a last minute dessert.  Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays.

Just tried this over the weekend thanks to pinterest. They were gone the day I made them! We had friends over for dinner and my husband had to ”share”. He is requesting them again and its only Monday! Ha! I used Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa instead of Hershey since its what I had on hand. Thank you for the recipe!
