Have looked at brownie recipes galore and didn't find this posted. If I didn't find it please excuse.These brownies are fudgy, creamy and just wonderful! They are also very easy to make. These can be made with walnuts or pecans. Source: Courtesy of Diana's Desserts, April 2, 2003 and Courtesy of Hershey' Cooling time is not included.

Wow! I don't like chocolate, but I licked the bowl clean. These are the best brownies I've ever had. I found this recipe in Hershey's Facvorite All-Time Recipes...100 Years of Hershey's Favorites. Highly recommended. Thanks for posting!

I found this recipe on the Hershey's website. We have made these a few times and hands down-these are the best brownies ever. With or without the frosting!! They are dense, chewy and fudgey brownies. I prefer them with nuts but have made without. Also, the hershey's special dark cocoa is very good in this recipe.(my fav) These brownies are SO awesome, I have given as gifts. People just flip over them. They are THAT good. ABSOLUTELY A 10 STAR RECIPE! :) Thanks for posting Di!
