I have been looking for this recipe! I have used it for years, and love it! My grocery store stopped carrying Nestle's brand cocoa and I miss it. Thanks for posting it, IrishEyesNYC!
I've used this so many times. It really is the best recipe. It's dairy free too! I also make mine with more cocoa in it anywhere ranging up to 1 cup of cocoa. It tastes better this way. =)
I make this recipe alot as everyone loves these brownies. I have used hersheys cocoa many times. Its about the same taste.
