Hersheys Syrup Brownies

Hershey’s Syrup Brownies

This recipe calls for a 16 oz can of Hershey’s syrup. I’m not sure you can get this in a can any longer, so this recipe might be from someone bunker baking during the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1920. In any case, it sounds rich and delicious!

4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 c all-purpose flour
16 oz Hershey’s syrup (calls for one 16 oz can)
