Favorite Brownies

On the Menu Today~
Favorite Brownies

This is one of our favorite brownie recipes.
We have been making Hershey's Best Brownie Recipe
for as long as I can remember.
It's a dependable recipe because
the brownies always turn out and
they are delicious.

A few weeks ago,
While I was grocery shopping,
I spotted this new frosting...
Betty Crocker Peter Paul Almond Joy Frosting....
I heard it calling my name...try me, try me....
Hershey's Best Brownie recipe immediately came to mind.
Of course, I decided to make brownies and
 frost them with this "new" frosting.

Let me tell you,
this frosting is absolutely delicious and
highly addictive...
When I started eating this frosting..
by the spoonfuls...
right out of the container..
I knew this frosting was going to be dangerous!

One of my biggest weakness is
frosted brownies....and
one of my favorite candy bars is
an almond joy..
This frosting spells: T-R-O-U-B-L-E.
