We all love brownies at my house but I don’t always have boxed mixes in my pantry when the kids come calling for brownies. Thankfully I have the Hershey’s Classic Recipes cookbook that my grandma gave to me years ago with a delicious recipe for homemade brownies. These delicious, fudgy made from scratch brownies made with cocoa powder are sure to be a huge hit!

Bake and serve!! My Le Creuset 9″ square pan is my absolute favorite! Nothing ever gets stuck to the bottom of it which is great news for brownies, because you want every last bite!
I love the sweet note from my grandma in this cookbook! I think cookbooks are some of the best gifts you can give because you’ll be remembered each time you create something from it!
