Late Night Treat

Some would not consider 7:30 late, but for my littles it is time to get ready for bed. 
 Instead, we are playing games and waiting for hot, chewy brownies!  
While they are baking, I thought I would share the recipe.
Simple, chocolate goodness!

Chewy Cocoa Brownies
1 2/3 cups of granulated sugar
3/4 cup melted butter
2 Tbs. water
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup baking cocoa~I happen to have Hershey's
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup chopped nuts~love pecans, but left them out tonight
Powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350゜F.  Grease 13 x 9 baking pan.
Combine sugar, butter and water in large bowl.  Stir in eggs and vanilla extract.  
Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl; stir into sugar mixture.  
Stir in nuts.  Spread into prepared baking pan.

Bake for 18-25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out slightly sticky. 
Cool completely in pan on wire rack.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Cut into bars.
Makes 2 dozen brownies.

ABSOLUTELY delicious with vanilla ice cream! 
Recipe compliments of Nestle Toll House Cocoa~my dear friend, former roomate and HOME EC teacher calls me the "bag lady".  Why not use the recipes that are tried and true!  Found this recipe a few years ago on my box of cocoa and my Sweetheart and littles LOVE them!
Good Night and SWEET Dreams!


  1. Yum! That sounds like something my handsome husband and kiddos would LOVE.

    Thank you for sharing.


  2. We use a similar recipe that also came off a box of cocoa. :) Those recipes are often the best. Thanks for sharing.
