::hershey's best brownies::

so i've never posted this since i feel like plain brownies are pretty basic and generally unexciting to post on a foodie website proporting new, inventive or interesting recipes. however, this has proven to be a great and easy recipe that i have whipped up a lot at the last minute either when taylor asks for some sweets or when we have guests and i need a good dessert with ingredients i already have. it only requires one bowl, which i really like, and comes straight from a little hershey's recipe "board book" cookbook i got while we were engaged. i add chocolate chips and half it each time. i always receive lots of compliments so here's to the girls, k and m, who've asked about it! :)

{hershey's best brownies}
adapted from here
1 stick butter
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla extract
1/2 cup flour
a scant 1/2 cup cocoa powder {technically, half of 3/4 cup so i think that's 1/4 c and 2 tablespoons}
1 cup sugar
1/4 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
3/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

oven to 350. grease a 9x9 pan. melt butter in microwave safe mixing bowl, about 1 min. mix in sugar, vanilla. whisk in eggs individually. stir in flour, powder, salt. mix in chocolate chips. bake for 25 -28 min. allow to cool before cutting and serving. i take them out at 25 or so min before a "toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean" and store the leftovers wrapped well in foil in the fridge. they stay chewy and the chocolate chips get crunchy. so good cold the next day!
