Salted Fudge Brownies

by jenna on February 7, 2011

I thought since it’s Monday and all, y’all might be able to use another sweet dessert to get through the mid-afternoon slump.

These are every bit as gooey, fudgy and delicious as they look, and instantly were deemed “the best brownies EVER” when I brought them to my church group last week.

They would be the perfect Valentine’s Day treat (and yes, I plan to bake them again next week)!

Hop on over to The Tasty Kitchen Blog to see my step-by-step photo recipe post. I’m thrilled to now be a contributor in such a passionate and enthusiastic cooking commmunity!

Oh man anything with “salted” in the title gets me every time. These look amazing!

Congrats on joining the TK contributor community! I am so excited to start seeing you over there!

And, those brownies look phenomenal. And I would go bake them right now, if I hadn’t JUST finished making a batch of Trifecta Cookies…

Oh my–maybe you should open an online bakery so we can all buy your treats??

Those brownies look like they are literally beyond moist. (and i hate that word but there is no other word for those!) Or maybe underbaked….but seriously they look amazing. Beyond delish!

I need to have those. Now!

Thanks for teasing me :)

Reply

jenna February 7, 2011 at 12:34 pm

I hate that word too!!! Adam and I were just laughing about that the other day. Sometimes you just gotta say it though! And yes, these brownies are (gulp) super moist. ;)

Reply

Abby February 7, 2011 at 5:29 pm

I have yet to meet someone that likes the word “moist.” At first I thought I was a weirdo because of it, but then I found out a bunch of other people hate it too (so I suppose I’m a weirdo for other reasons, eh?)

Moral of the story? The brownies look deliciously lubricated. Okay. That’s even worse. They look great ;)

OMG, OMG, OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you send me a couple now please? Or a dozen?!!

In the “old days” I never would have wanted to try this…but I recently had some dark chocolate truffles with sea salt and they were A-MAZING!

sea salt makes everything better!

MM I love anything that adds a little salt with sweet. I can’t get enough of those Salted Caramel Hot Chocolates from Starbucks! I will definitely have to try these.

Kim @ Wallet Friendly Wellness February 7, 2011 at 12:22 pm

I just saw these on Tasty Kitchen and fell in love with the pics. I actually have everything I need to make them too! I hope to surprise the boyfriend with them for Valentine’s Day :)

Congrats on Tasty Kitchen! I can’t wait to see more of your submissions.

Jenna!! Lol stop making these ridiculously amazing things! I’m trying to diet here! But seriously keep making them.. I’ve already made the Oh Baby Bars and they were a hit. =D

You know when you quickly open your eyes so wide that your contacts almost fall out? That just happened when I saw the brownies.

Reply

lol! I love it! (that happens to me all the time)

Marie February 7, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Congrats Jenna, that is so exciting! And these look amaaazing. I love Lindt’s dark chocolate with sea salt so I will absolutely be making these– thanks for passing the recipe along!

Reply

Ann February 7, 2011 at 12:36 pm

These look amazing! A little salt with sweet does so much to bring out the flavors! Sadly, my husband doesn’t like chocolate (crazy, I know), so I might just have to make these and give them out to passerby on the street.

Reply

Laura February 7, 2011 at 12:37 pm

These look incredible! I want to make them and bring them with me to an event on Friday night but am swamped all week! Do you think if I make them on Wednesday night they will still taste yummy on Friday?

Reply

jenna February 7, 2011 at 12:42 pm

Yep! Just bake ‘em and throw them in the fridge. They’ll keep for a few days there! Remember to bring to room temperature though before serving!

1) These brownies look dangerously outrageously super good – must make ASAP! 2) Congrats on the Tasty Kitchen Contributer gig – so exciting!!! Your recipes have definitely got me back in the kitchen cooking & baking and I’m the happier for it.

AllieNic @Frisky Lemon February 7, 2011 at 1:36 pm

Wow. Those look crazy-good! Sea salt and chocolate could be the best combo ever…Have you ever had the dark chocolate, sea salted caramels that they sell at Whole Foods? Unbelieveable…

Reply

Laura @ prettylittlewords February 7, 2011 at 1:42 pm

I literally just drooled all over my keyboard….YUM.

Dark chocolate + sea salt is probably the best combination in the world. When you add gooey brownies to the mix….oh man…

Reply

Amber K February 7, 2011 at 1:43 pm

I hate the taste of salt (I’m now officially the weirdest person ever), but I’m DOWN for brownies!

Woah. They look so divine and fudgy. And salted! I love chocolate and salt. Especially together.

Reply

megan February 7, 2011 at 3:02 pm

oh my gosh. those brownies look so decadent. i love my brownies extra gooey and chocolatey- so i can only imagine how amazing those are! and the salt… ! the look of them reminds me of barefoot contessa’s peanut butter swirl brownies…those had to cool for 1 hour in the fridge too. it was so tough to be patient and wait!

Reply

Katie February 7, 2011 at 3:04 pm

Those look absolutely perfect, I have always struggled to find a good brownie recipe that’s fudgy and cakey – and these look just right! Can’t wait to try them!

Reply

Karen February 7, 2011 at 3:07 pm

It’s like you created the perfect dessert just for ME! I love salted desserts. Like the Lindt with sea salt- I am now an addict upon your recommendation (except, weirdly, I can only find it at Walgreens, of all places). I will definitely be making these!

Amy @ What Jew Wanna Eat February 7, 2011 at 3:12 pm

These look freaking fantastic! They almost look raw in the last photo- I mean that in a good way. Mmmm chocolate.

Okay Jenna…where the heck is mine? You are such a tease!!! lol! Those are fudgiest looking brownies I have ever seen! I wish I could reach through my computer screen and eat one of these!!! Yummmo!

Hey Jenna – I made these this weekend (there is only one left and I’m trying to talk myself out of going back to the kitchen for it) but I was just wondering – did you add more salt after pulling them out of the oven? Mine didn’t have adorable salt crystals left on top by the time they came out of the oven, but were still totally delish.

Reply

Kari@Loaves and Dishes September 18, 2012 at 4:52 pm

My favorite chocolate is Lindt Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt, I’m thinking Salted Fudge Brownies are gonna be my new favorite brownies!
