Hazelnut Cocoa Brownies with Sea Love Sea Salt
When the occasion calls for something chocolate, gooey and salted—look no further. While brownies from a box work fine, brownies from scratch are the bomb ... and almost as easy as box brownies.
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 8 ounces (2 sticks) melted butter
- 1¼ cups cocoa
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- ½ cup flour
- ¼ cup chopped hazelnuts
- ½ teaspoon Sea Love Sea Salt (more for sprinkling on top)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour an 8-inch square pan.
In mixer, beat eggs at medium speed until fluffy. Add both sugars. Add remaining ingredients and mix to combine.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 40–45 minutes.
At about the 35-minute mark, take the brownies from the oven and sprinkle Sea Love Sea Salt on top.
Insert a toothpick to check that they are done. If it comes out with batter on it, try baking for 5 minutes longer. A clean toothpick means the brownies are baked.
