sea salt

I tried to get over here all day. What happens to some days?  
Sea Salt Brownies were last week's cookie of the week...this week's cookie too.
I made them again today.  These photos document the first batch.
Chopping 0ban wafers; completely unnecessary. 
Buying cocoa rouge powder from a fabulous local confectioner; necessary.
Sampling the delicious batter;  completely necessary.
Using sea salt; necessary.    
Having the last bite for breakfast; completely necessary.
 Three pieces from your second batch saved for your children's lunches; necessary.

sea salt fudge brownies:
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter :: 2 oz unsweetened chocolate finely chopped :: 1/4 cup + 2 TBLS unsweetened cocoa :: 2 cups sugar :: 3 large eggs :: 1 1/2 t vanilla :: 1 cup flour :: 1/2 tsp sea salt
Line a 9" pan with foil, draping over the edge.  Lightly butter. 
Melt butter and unsweetened chocolate.  Transfer mixture to a bowl.  Whisk next ingredients in one at a time, except for sea salt.  Pour into prepared pan.  Sprinkle sea salt evenly over batter.  Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Center will be a bit soft.  Let cool in pan for 1 hour.  Refrigerate 1 hour until firm.  Peel off foil.  Cut into 16 squares.  (In our case, 9)
I must warn you, they are a bit different with the salt on top.  Sweet but salty.

Jane said...

Sounds delish! Will have to try them. Thanks! BTW, Where do you get those niffy wax bags?

Seanna Lea said...

I'll have to try these. My local chocolate shop has really delicious caramels with sea salt, so I've grown to love the taste!

The A.D.D. Knitter said...

Mmmm, I just had sea salt caramels and loved them! The salt is the perfect foil to the sweetness...

peaknits said...

I have to try this - they look and sound delicious! Thank you for sharing.

nova said...

The thought of these brownies make me very happy. I like sea salt...I like chocolate...yummy.

Stacey said...

what a perfect combination!!!!

kim said...

Those sound completely decadent and delicious!

Denise said...

super yummy as always, the salt sounds an interesting touch. I've never heard of Oban Wafers? is it just chocolate? It looks like chocolate buttons (as we call them in England!)

Julie said...

They look delicious... and I love the cowl that you made!

Theresa /t does wool said...

mon ami...yes...a necessary place...these WILL be made over here...thank you for sharing...

emily said...

oh holy moly leslie! they look so good they make me nervous.

Marie said...

I've never tried sea salt in my brownies. It really makes a difference? Hmmm. Well, of course, I have to give it a try now.
I'll taste the batter in advance just to make sure. =)

I love salty sweet, so this sounds like a great recipe for me. My favorite treat is salted caramels from a local chocolatier...

Romi said...

Yum!!! :)

Are you in Pittsburgh? I went to school there for a couple of years. I have very very fond memories of the people and the city.

Amy said...

Oh my god these look good. It is so wrong that I saw this within minutes of returning from my (routine) pregnancy glucose test. ;-)

Mo said...

Oh My Heavens!! These look and sound TDF. I will be making them this week. TFS!

Philigry said...

oh wow! perfect for those out of control cravings! yummy!

I have just discovered your blog and everything I see on here inspires me: knitting, cooking and being a Mom. I have two daughters and I love all you creative ideas and your presentations. I just wanted you to know that you are providing lots of us with a little sunshine and inspiration. Thank you!

Julie @ Letter9 said...

My bell just quivered a bit in jealousy. Whoa. Holy batter.

Rachel said...

Oh good lord! Why do you have to do this to me while I am in the midst of a kitchen redo and have no over?

kristin said...

incredible. they sound insanely good!

iknitipurl said...

Sounds like a yummy brownie. Definitely will try it. Love the sweet but salty combination.

magnusmog said...

these look far too tempting :)

ash said...

Oh dear.
Those look yummmy.
Must bake brownies!

Caroline said...

Sounds Delicious! Much better than my version of "salt" fudge that I accidentally created when I was around ten. I thought the recipe said 1/2 cup of salt instead of 1/2 a tsp.! It was so sad because they LOOKED so good, but tasted sooooo awful.

Amanda said...

Oh my goodness! they look scrumptious! tagged you btw...in between theme parks!

MadMad said...

I can't wait to make these. My husband LOVES these oatmeal cookies we buy on Cape Cod that have sea salt on them - they're awesome.

ali said...

Oh, my, goodness... what are you doing to me? That yummy breakfast-y cookie cake thingy with berries was a huge hit with both my husband and my children (um, yeah, me too), and now you have me thinking of going out and buying unsweetened cocoa? That's not something I usually stock... yet...
Sea salt I do have...

Enough about such sweetness,
happy knitting-
ali

Jess said...

WOW, these look like the yummiest cookies of the week yet! I am totally bookmarking this recipe. If I weren't out of town, I would be off to whole foods for the ingredients right now! mmm. Thanks for sharing.

Alisha said...

Mental note: Must buy sea salt.

Elinor said...

Oh and you had to go and give the recipe, right? You couldn't just leave it at, "I made brownies. Check it." I even have some good chocolate in the house. GAH! I will definitely be trying these this week.

Tricia in Colorado said...

Yum! This is a great recipe, thank you for sharing. (Is it from a cookbook I need to own?) Along with good chocolate, I used coarse fleur de sel instead of finely ground sea salt. Great results and it looks pretty with the salt flakes on top. I've been searching for a new and improved brownie recipe and this fits the bill!

Sissel said...

gotta try theese!
Just need to metricifi first.
Have a great weekend!

Mary Sarah said...

OMG! Brownies are my favorite and these look fantastic! Thanks for sharing!

BONGI said...

That looks delicious!! I just have to try to make those. One question; how many grams is 1 1/2 sticks of butter? I will try to make Swedish Sea salt brownies...Hopefully they will be just as delicious as the ones you are making!!!

rosie said...

I think I am glad you don't garden, because then I would be envious of your knitting, baking AND gardening skills!! Those brownies look divine.

SMF.sportychic said...

Oh such a good combo, salt is amazingly necessary with a good chocolate! Yummo Leslie! I would love one for breakfast, thank you!

emily said...

about to make the second batch...

raining sheep said...

Welcome back to 'regular' life; vacation is so much fun but I have to say there is something calming about routine. The brownies are a wonderful way to settle back into your days.

molly said...

on this week's to do list...

yum!

Laura said...

Thank you for sharing this recepie. I made these last night and they are delicious! I had to bring them in to work so I wouldn't eat the whole pan myself.
