MY REVIEW

"If I could give these brownies 10 stars, I would! Easy to make, quick, common ingredients, & a 9x13 pan of super-delicious treats that made everyone in my family happy! Satisfied the chocolate craving of two kids. Moist. I cut the sugar to 1 2/3 cups, & used a 12 oz. bag of semisweet chocolate chips. Will make these often!"

"Easy to make and delicious. Always have these ingredients on hand except the chocolate chunks. I used a heaping cup of chocolate chips as I alway have those in my pantry. Will definitely make again."

"I've been making these since around 1980 - when they were published on the Hershey's can! Back when it used to be in a can. I lost the recipe for awhile, but found it on their website. These are out favorites, but there is no way these make 3 dozen! They're also on my blog as they are a family favorite."

"Delicious brownies! I don't like super sweet so I used 1 1/2 cups sugar and substituted half of the butter for coconut oil and they came out great!"
