Hershey’s brownies

I’ve been craving brownies a lot recently. It didn’t help that I somehow screwed up making brownies with my Ghiradelli brownie mix. I don’t even know how I messed up. So I decided to make some brownies from scratch with an easy recipe.

I’m still searching for a recipe that is both chewy and fudgy. I’ve gotten a couple of suggestions and I plan on trying them out really soon. For these brownies, I used Hershey’s Best Brownies recipe. It was easy to follow and the brownies came out very fudgy but they weren’t very chewy.

I used a smaller baking pan than recommended so that I could get big fat brownies.
