When you think of fudgy brownies, salty isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Traditionally, you add salt to the brownie batter so that the salt helps accentuate the chocolate flavor. This time, all of the salt is sprinkled on the top. This creates a crunchy and salty crust on top of the brownies.
This is a very good idea. Trust me.
Homemade brownies are always so much better than boxed mix, but adding this layer of salt to the tops just pops. It reminds me a lot of the dark chocolate almonds with raw sugar and sea salt that Trader Joe’s sells. So good!
Have you ever tried a salted fudge brownie?

- 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
- 2 ounces dark chocolate (I used 90%, but you could also use baker's chocolate)
- 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (I used Hershey's special dark)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 350F. Set aside a parchment paper or non-stick foil covered 8" x 8" pan.
- In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and dark chocolate together. Once melted, remove from heat and whisk in the cocoa powder.
- One by one, whisk in the sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and flour until combined. Pour into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the top evenly with the sea salt.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes until cooked on the outside edges and still fudgy if a cake tester is inserted. Allow to cool for at least 1 hour before cutting.
