I've never fancied myself to be much of a baker but there is one big exception, this chocolate brownie recipe!
There are certain fond memories I want my young son to have, and they do not include him remembering that his mom was a terrible baker.
That's why it's important to me to master a recipe that is simple and tasty!
I have always found that to make the richest brownies you have to use a good base.
In the case of chocolate brownies, the base is obviously going to be your chocolate!
I have always been a fan of the classics so I tend to stick with what I know, and in this case it is Hershey's.
If you really want the best results in your chocolate baking, in my opinion, Hershey's cocoa powder is the perfect choice.
Ingredients you will need are:
The one thing my mother always told me is that when it comes to baking you want to be as exact as you can with the measurements because baking is indeed a science!
Now when you think of brownies what comes to mind? For me I think of gooey, warm, soft, chewy, sweet and square!
Here comes the kid approved part. My son and I collect cookie cutters. We have mini ones, that are roughly the size of one brownie square.
Once the brownies have had a little time to cool, I let him pick a shape (these days he likes the dinosaurs!). I spray a touch of non-stick spray onto the cutter and quickly press the shape out of the brownie, and it's a hit for both him and I!
I truly feel like this chocolate brownie recipe is simple enough for anyone to do at home but has such rewarding results.
