Looking for the brownies of my youth in the 50s

rainey | Oct 22, 201108:31 PM

I think the recipe probably came from the back of a tin of Hersey's cocoa. I've been to the Hershey's site but they must have 4 dozen recipes and that makes it really difficult to isolate the one I'm looking for.

I remember that it used cocoa powder not chocolate and I believe that it used a shockingly scant amount of flour. It *may* have been mixed in the same 8"x8" pan they were baked with.

I can't remember if they were best described as cakey or fudgy. What I remember best about them is that they formed a crackly crust on the top. It's the crunchy crust I'm after.

Anyone know what I'm talking about or got a recipe handed down from the 50s? Thanks in advance.
