Okay, so since the oven was already on from another order of Disney Frozen cupcakes, I figured what the heck. I really wanted something chocolatey and salty so I set out to bake some brownies from scratch. I have never made these before and I was feeling adventurous so I went for it. This is a modified recipe found on allrecipes.com. I figured adding the sea salt would satisfy my cravings and give the brownies an extra kick. They turned out pretty yummy. I hope you enjoy them and it’s really so easy! I doubt I’ll ever buy a box of brownie mix again.
Original recipe makes 16 brownies-
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
sprinkling of coarse sea salt to top

- Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
