How to make brownies without a box of mix
Based on the Hershey's recipe.

Grease and flour a 13x9 pan; preheat oven to 350.

Sift together:

1 cup flour
2/3 cup alkalized cocoa powder (e.g. Dutch processed cocoa powder)
1/2 tsp baking powder

(If using unsweetened cocoa powder as a substitute for alkalized, use the same amount of cocoa powder but add 1/4 tsp baking soda since unsweetened cocoa is acidic, and the baking soda balances it out.)


In a mixer bowl, cream:

1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
8 oz. butter, softened
1/2 tsp salt

Add and beat on medium:

2 eggs
2 egg yolks

Add reserved dry ingredients and mix on low until combined.

Optional: fold in 2/3 cup chocolate chips into batter.

Add to pan; bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick removed is mostly dry.
