I would be grateful if anyone could give me a really nice recipe for chocolate brownies, chocolate chip cookies and muffins too. Thank you.

All of my recipes are still in storage.
But I remember having a lot of success with the brownie recipe on the can of Hershey's (powdered) cocoa.
I also used to use their recipe for chocolate cake; it came out dark, rich and moist.
For chocolate chip cookies, I used either the recipe on the Nestle's chips bag or the Mrs. Fields recipe.
I am sure the Mrs. Fields recipe is online.

I use the Nestle's Toll House recipe with pecans added. Also like the Hershey's chocolate recipe although haven't made a cake for awhile. I have a recipe for marble cheesecake brownies which I usually make (will supply on request). In a pinch I use Trader Joe's Brownie mix. It's pretty good.

Look under the post "Appetizer or Dessert for 50th Wedding Anniversary" - I posted my two favorite brownie recipes.

Thanks to you all. I don't think we have Hershey's powdered cocoa or even Nestle's chips but I'm sure I can google something.
I love it when we come to the US and stay in a B&B and they serve those wonderful baked goods like bran and carrot muffins,banana bread and other things. I would have an American B&B breakfast over any other breakfast any day ! I never have breakfast except in American B&Bs !

I have to make about 100 or so brownies for a fundraiser. Just to make certain this is the recipe I remembered, I just tried out a batch on the neighborhood kids. The kids gave the brownies a big thumbs up! Here's the Hershey cocoa recipe from their 100 year cookbook. I double it and use a 15x10x2 aluminum pan which i think is considered a baking sheet pan.

1/2 cup (1 stick butter or margarine, melted
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 hersheys cocoa
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Heat oven to 350. Grease 9-inch square baking pan. In medium bowl, stir together butter, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs; with spoon beat well. In another bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add to the egg mixture; beat until well blended. Stir in nuts if desired. Spread batter into greased pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.

Extra treat, before baking, insert unwrapped choc. kisses.

If you can't find the hersheys cocoa in your area, i would think any unsweetened cocoa powder would work.
Enjoy!

I used to make my own brownies with semi-sweet chocolate but I found that it was much cheaper and easier and tasted about the same with the mix.

I have two really good ones, one is called Texas brownies and the other is called Mississippi Mud brownies, both are to die for. I will dig up the recipes and post them here.

When this elderly relative died, her daughter in law, put all her recipes onto CD's so she can share them easily...

My mom makes a Texas sheet cake which is kind of like a brownie, I wonder if it is the same thing. You bake them in a cookie sheet.
