If you were to go to your favorite bakery or coffee shop, a brownie there could be up to 500 calories or more! Try these; I know you will love them! I make them all the time for my family and friends. My daughter loves baking these when her friends come over. Sometimes they go so fast they need to make another batch!

- 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp Hershey’s chocolate syrup
- Extra syrup for garnish, optional
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Spray an 8 x 8 pan with cooking spray and then line with parchment paper or tin foil. Leave some hanging over two sides for easy lifting.
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
- Add in the cooled chocolate/butter mixture.

- Pour into prepared pan and spread out to the edges of the pan. Make sure it’s even all around.
