I have made these for over 25 years. Only ones I like. Very easy to make moist and perfect. The recipe used to be on the Hershey's can. Y handwritten copy is so faded and stained. I had to check online for no of eggs because I couldn't read mine

I've made this brownie recipe for years. I got it off the back of a Hershey's cocoa tin; the original recipe called for oil instead of butter--I think butter sounds better!! Anyhow, it's a great brownie.

These are really good! I'd never made brownies using boiled water before, so thought I'd try something new! They're so easy to put together with everything on hand, which is a plus for me! I made these to take to a friends house for a BBQ and they were gobbled up! I also used a 9" pan instead of the 9X13 for a thicker brownie and bake time was only about 5 minutes longer. I frosted them and put crushed pecans on top which made a nice presentation. Thanks for sharing this really good and easy recipe!
