Hershey's Brownies with Icing

"I searched for years for a brownie that was more ooey gooey than cake like and here it is. I make it in a 9X13 pan and it dissapears FAST. I found this on the back of a Hershey's Cocoa can and the icing is from a friend."

Ready In:
36 brownies




  • For brownies heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with non stick cooking spray.
  • In large microwave safe bowl place butter and microwave until melted.
  • Stir in sugar and vanilla.
  • Add eggs one at a time, hand beating well with spoon after each addition.
  • Add cocoa; beat until well blended.
  • Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat well.
  • Stir in nuts if desired.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 30 - 35 minutes (I underbake mine for 25 minutes).
  • Drop icing on hot brownies and spread with a rubber spatula as icing melts. Cool completely and cut into bars.
  • For icing. Melt butter then wisk in the cocoa, butter and powder sugar. Icing will be thick but will melt when placed on hot brownies and make like a thin chocolate coating. The brownies are still good without the icing but what the heck, go for it!

  1. bake these for only 25 minutes and they were more like a cake not gooey at all. definitely a great chocolate cake recipe though.
  2. I made these without the topping and the nuts but I threw in an entire bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, making them the best brownies I've made yet.
  3. These are delicious! I've had this recipe for along time on a Hershey's Cocoa recipe card. Very easy to make and it's a good thing too, because they disappear fast! I used the creamy brownie frosting recipe that came with the brownie recipe card. Listed on the Zaar as recipe #43891
  4. Awesome recipe!! I baked them for 25 minutes. They were super moist. I just topped with chocolate chips before putting in the oven. 37 weeks pregnant & can say me & baby approve ??

  5. Brownies are delicious! They were just a bit crumbly but I think more butter will help with that! I will also try sifting....that me help


  1. I've use this recipe as the base for two different versions. Version 1: Dark chocolate chips in the batter. Sprinkle chocolate toffee bits and course sea salt on top before baking. Version 2: Milk chocolate chunks in the batter. Spread half the batter in the pan. Dollop real peanut butter and spread evenly (I used about 2 cup). Then spread the remaining batter on top. Both versions were huge hits!!
  2. I ran out of butter, so didn't make the icing this time, but will definitely try it next time!
