Make it Monday! All Dressed Brownies!

SO... I love a good brownie but I rarely ever have a package or boxed mix on hand (for some reason I always forget to buy them) and it aint easy to make them from scratch (Ive tried.... lots of times) But I know it can be done as best friend makes them... and they are to die for! so I have been in search for a great brownie recipe and I found it! 
Here it is!

This one came from the Hershey website and boy oh boy is it yummy!


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 9-inch square baking pan.
  2. Stir together butter, sugar and vanilla in bowl. Add eggs; beat well with spoon. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to egg mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in nuts, if desired. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan.
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Prepare CREAMY BROWNIE FROSTING; spread over brownies. Cut into squares. About 16 brownies. 
When I made mine I wanted to dress them up (as the title suggests... ) so here is what I did!
I added caramel ice cream topping
and swirled it around with a knife so it would be sweet and have the caramel flavor all through the brownies.

Then I added skor bits, and mini chocolate chips before baking.

Looks yummy just like that if you ask me!
I baked for 20 mins or so and they were perfect still a little bit of a fudge texture but cooked through.
Once baked they looked like this!
Tip: With this recipe watch them for the last few minutes and just when the brownies pull away from the pan a little take them out!
And the finished product!
Supper yummy and certainly hit the brownie spot!
