Does anyone know how many ounces are in a can of Hershey's chocolate syrup? I want to make the brownie recipe, but I have the larger bottle and need the comparable measurement. Thanks.

To clarify: what I stated is from the Hershey site:

* One 16-oz. can HERSHEY'S Syrup contains 1-1/2 cups syrup.

In this case I believe the 16 oz measurement is by WEIGHT, not by 'liquid volume'.


>>> Weight:
The two most commonly used units of weight (or mass) measurement for cooking in the U.S. are the ounce and the pound. Do not confuse the ounce of weight with the fluid ounce, because they are not the same; there is no standard conversion between weight and volume unless you know the density of the ingredient.

If you look at the picture of the can below you will see that the 16 oz is NET WT, not fluid oz. (Affiliate Link)

If you are still unsure about what amount to use you could call the Hershey toll-free number on Monday.

My recipe called for a can of Hersey Syrup. I used two cups and my bars turned out just fine. On and one half cup would not have been enough.
