This chocolate syrup brownie recipe has been our family’s go to brownie recipe since I was a child. It is the only brownie recipe my mom ever made and my go to brownie recipe. I always keep a can of Hershey’s chocolate syrup on my pantry shelf so that I can make these Hershey Syrup brownies whenever the craving strikes. Thanks to the chocolate syrup, these brownies are the perfect balance between a cake like brownie and fudgey brownie and the chocolate level is perfect. They are definitely Best Brownies. I can call them this because this is my mother’s recipe and our last name is Best! But I can also call them that because they are divine!
Hershey Syrup Brownies
The only chocolate you need for these brownies is one can of chocolate syrup and then a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips for the frosting, no cocoa powder required. My mom will put nuts in the brownies sometimes but I am not a fan of nuts in my baked goods so I always leave them out.
How to Make Hershey Syrup Brownies
- Cream together you butter and sugar.
- Add in eggs one at a time. Mixing the eggs in one at a time ensure they mix in with the butter and not just with each other.
- Add in remaining ingredients and mix until combined.
- Spread brownie batter into a 9 x 13 pan that has been coated in baking spray.
- Bake at 350 degrees F. for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
- After the brownies have cooled, use a knife or offset spatula to spread frosting evenly over the brownies.
- Allow frosting to set up before cutting brownies into squares.
Brownie Making Tips
- Beat batter just until all your ingredients are incorporated. Over beating creates air in the batter and will give you more of a cake like brownie. These brownies are more fudgy.
- Rotating the pan half way through the baking time will help with more evenly baked brownies.
- Don’t over bake and dry your brownies out. Brownies are done when the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and the center is set, not wiggly. When you insert a toothpick there should still be a smear of brown color on the toothpick, but not wet batter. These brownies are fudgy so if the toothpick comes out totally clean they are probably over baked.
A good brownie recipe is a must have for every cook so if you don”t have one- now you do!
