1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks)
1 3/4 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups Hershey's syrup. (regular or dark!)
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chopped nuts (optional, of course)
Preheat oven to 350
Grease a 13x9 baking pan, set aside
In the bowl of an electric mixer cream butter and sugar until well blended. I do this for about 10 minutes.
Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well. Add syrup, beat until well combined
Stir together flour, cocoa and baking soda
Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, mixing well. Stir in nuts.
Spread into prepared pan.
Bake 35 minutes. Remove from oven and add sprinkles. LOTS of sprinkles! Return to oven and bake another 10 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Makes about 36 brownies.
These are the brownies I took to the fire station when the Tiger Scouts went on their GoSeeIt.
