Race Car Brownies

March 28, 2019Teresa

Race Car Brownies are irresistible. My cousin gave me this recipe about 30 years ago, and it’s a keeper. They used to make up a batch of these delicious brownies every time they went to NASCAR races. Thus, the name, Race Car Brownies. These jewels have Hershey’s syrup in the batter and use Hershey’s chocolate chips in the fudgy icing. Yes, they are everything you want in a brownie.

We had the young adult group from our church over for lunch in January. I made up two fabulous Pizza Casseroles, Fried Green Beans, Creamy Sweet Corn, Greek Salad, and Oreo Cookie Dessert. I also made this lovely brownie dessert. We had a large turn out of kids. What didn’t get eaten up initially, got sent home in care packages. They were very pleased. 🙂

I baked these brownies in a cookie sheet rather than a baking dish. The brownies aren’t as thick that way. But they’re so rich it works out just as well. The icing is smoothed over top rather quickly while the brownies are still hot. It’s thick, chocolaty and fudgy.

This terrific dessert should be on your menu. Whether you’re going to Nascar races or just soccer practice down the street, these are the brownies to take! Everyone will want one, and you’ll be left holding an empty pan. Enjoy.
