Hershey's Best MIni Brownies
1 cup ( 2 sticks) butter or margarine melted
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
4 eggs ( one at a time)
1 3/4 cup hershey cocoa
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sa1t
1 cup chopped nuts (I like walnuts) ( optional)
1 cup raisins/ dried cranberries ( optional)
use a tablespoon to mix everything:
mix first 3 ingredients.
add one egg at a time beating well with a spoon after each addition
in a separate bowl combine cocoa, flour, baking powder and salt to sift onto the egg mixture ( i just put all these dry ingredients on a sifter directly)
pour onto 24 mini muffin cups about 2/3 full. carefully "bury" 2-3 nut pieces and 1-2 raisins/cranberries on each cup making sure its not buried too deep or exposed too much ( might burn the nuts/raisins)
bake in 325 F oven for 20 mins.
Pairs Well With
found this at hersheys.com. made it many times already. i have tweaked the original recipe to fit in mini cupcake molds/ paper .halving the recipe will yield 24 mini brownies ( yes 24!) because i always put extra nuts and even cranberries/raisins.
