Brownie option 2: fudgy and also made with plenty of butter. This time with a (completely not) secret ingredient: sea salt! (Trust me, it works.)


  • 3 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup (1 stick, 4 ounces) unsalted butter
  • 1⅓ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp flaky sea salt or ¼ teaspoon table salt
  • ⅔ cup flour

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease an 8" square baking pan.
  2. In a double boiler (or heatproof bowl over pot of simmering water water), melt chocolate and butter together until almost completely melted (a few bits left). Remove from heat and stir until melted and smooth. (You can also do this in bursts in the microwave).
  3. Whisk in the sugar, eggs (one at a time), vanilla, and salt. Stir in flour and spread into the pan. Bake 25-30 minutes, until toothpick comes out without batter on it.
