Kate Krader has been making these fudgy, sweet-salty brownies since she was 10 years old. As a kid she used regular table salt; now she recommends a flaky sea salt like Maldon, because the flavor is less harsh and it melts so nicely into the batter, accentuating the chocolaty sweetness. The salted fudge brownies can be refrigerated for up to 3 days, and frozen for up to 1 month.

Recipe Ingredients for Salted Fudge Brownies (Food & Wine)

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt, Maldon flaky sea salt

Recipe Directions for Salted Fudge Brownies (Food & Wine)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Line a 9-inch square metal cake pan with foil, draping the foil over the edges. Lightly butter the foil.

  2. In a large saucepan, melt the butter with the unsweetened chocolate over very low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Whisking them in one at a time until thoroughly incorporated, add the cocoa, sugar, eggs, vanilla and flour. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Sprinkle the salt evenly over the batter. Using a butter knife, swirl the salt into the batter.

  3. Bake the fudge brownies in the center of the oven for about 35 minutes, until the edge is set but the center is still a bit soft and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out coated with a little of the batter. Let the brownies cool at room temperature in the pan for 1 hour, then refrigerate just until they are firm, about 1 hour. Lift the brownies from the pan and peel off the foil. Cut the brownies into 16 squares. Serve at room temperature
