The Perfect Brownies (great GF & dairy free options too!) aka “Hershey’s Best Brownies”

We LOVE these brownies at our house and it’s kind of dangerous how easy they are to whip up.  Takes only 1 bowl and a few minutes and you’re on your way to fudgey, chocolatey brownie heaven…

Ingredients:
-1 cup (2 cubes) of  Butter (Olive Oil & Coconut Oil both work too to make these dairy free!)
-2 cups of Sugar
-2 tsp Vanilla
-4 Eggs
-3/4 cup Cocoa
-1 cup Flour *If making these Gluten Free, replace with any GF flour of your choice)
-1/2 tsp Baking Powder
-1/4 tsp Salt

Directions:
1-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2- Grease a 9×13″ pan and set aside.
3-Melt the butter in a large microwave safe bowl.
4- Stir in each of the rest of the ingredients by hand until everything is well mixed.
5-Pour into the greased pan and spread it out evenly.  The batter will be thick.

6-Bake for 28 to 30 minutes, until the brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan.)

7-Let them cool for about 10 minutes (if you can wait that long and enjoy!)

**There are a lot of awesome things you can do with these brownies.  One of our favorites is to sprinkle chocolate chips over the top right after the come out of the oven and leave them for 5 minutes or so and then when they are melted spread them over the brownies like a lovely ganache or frosting.  Super easy and delicious.

Sprinkle chocolate chips (or any chocolate candy!) over these brownies when they are right out of the oven and wait 5 minutes and then you can spread them over the brownies for a very simple, delicious frosting!

*These are the best gluten free brownies I’ve ever tasted and feed them to gluten eating people all of the time with no complaint!  You can also make them dairy (CF) free by subbing coconut oil or even olive oil for the butter and they are amazing!

      This makes me so happy! “We’ll never buy boxed (insert any item here)” again is music to my ears, yay! I will warn you that these brownies are a slight bit addicting! 😉
