Baking || Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Brownies

Father’s Day is coming soon, and when we were little my brother and I (i.e., my Mom) used to always bake my Dad something as a gift as he is a sugar fiend. Since we are world’s apart, I won’t be baking him anything this year, but if I were to then brownies would be my gift of choice. Because who doesn’t love a brownie?  

Whenever you read brownie recipes, they typically call for the poshest chocolates that you can afford. You really can taste the difference between an okay chocolate and an awesome one in baking recipes. Here I used Lindt’s extremely dark chocolate (99%) and their dark chocolate and sea salt (phenomenally good, I think more of it went into my stomach than the recipe.)

  1. 1 cup of butter
  2. 2 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  3. 170 g Lindt darkest chocolate (I used a 99%)
  4. 4 large eggs
  5. 2 teaspoons of vanilla
  6. 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  7. 2 cups of flour
  8. 1 bar of Lindt sea salt, broken
  9. sea salt, to sprinkle
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F. Melt the butter and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat. Once everything is thoroughly melted, remove from heat and stir in the sugar. Pour the mix into a bowl and beat in the eggs and vanilla. Whisk in the flour and sugar. Lastly stir in about half the bar of your broken sea salt chocolate bar. Pour the batter into a pre-greased 9Γ—13 baking dish. Press the remaining chocolate chunks into the top of your batter.
  2. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Then set aside on a wire rack to cool. Lightly sprinkle sea salt all over the top of your brownies before they cool completely and are set.

  • Chocolate and sea salt, a winning combination!

  • These look so yummy! Brownies are my favourites! x

  • I use the bbc food chocolate brownie cake recipe for brownies, with slight modifications. They always turn out amazing. Except the time I used organic chocolate and discovered it does weird things when you melt it!

    • Ohh, what does the organic chocolate do? x

      • It goes really liquidy and separates so it ends up looking more like a muddy puddle than melted chocolate.

        • Hmm… it must be something about the transfats in non-organic that helps hold it together. Interesting! x

  • These look so good! And I love Lindt chocolate. Do you think you the Dark Orange Intense flavour would work well in brownies?

    • Ohhh! Yes, I love chocolate and orange desires . (My favourite Ben’s Cookie is the chocolate and orange.) x

    • Lindt even recommends working up to the 99%! Starting with the 80% and getting used to extremely dark chocolates. I can’t eat the 99% straight….the 85% is delicious to me though! x

  • Well if this isn’t just perfection! I think I just found the next recipe I need to try!

  • They look good who doesn’t like brownies…………..ok I have a daughter who says they are like cake and she doesn’t eat cake, the girl is strange…………..just saying and I can she is my daughter and I love her even though she is strange.

    • I guess some brownies can be quite cake-y (these are) and others are more fudge-like, so I can kind of see her point. But I think both are delicious! x

  • I like the dark chocolate taste blending with the flavour of sea salt. Thank you for the lovely recipe.
