Fudgy Brownies

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Eagletown

I have used this recipe forever. I think it came off an old Hershey's pamphlet I got in the mail (all that is left is the cutout recipe!) I like this recipe because I usually always have cocoa in my pantry. The recipe uses 2/3 cup total vegetable oil, but I listed it as 1/3 cup twice since it is added at different times in the recipe. My family loves it! I hope you enjoy it, too.
