Not all recipes need to be complicated. Sometimes, it's fun to take a box mix and fancy it up. Here, we have our favorite brownie mix from a box. There are a lot of "hacks" to make them even better like using melted butter instead of oil, swap in buttermilk for regular milk, or adding extra cocoa powder, espresso powder or chocolate chips to kick up the flavor. Try chopped nuts, or dried fruit and take it in another direction. We've added vanilla paste in our recipe below.
ESPRESSO + FLAKY SEA SALT BROWNIES made with Norwegian Flake Sea Salt
1 box of your favorite brownie mix, prepared but not baked
1 tbsp vanilla paste
Salty Provisions Espresso Sea Salt and/or Salty Provisions Norwegian Flake Sea Salt, for sprinkling
Preheat the oven as instructed on the box.
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl with an electric mixer. Spread into a prepared tin. Bake as instructed. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with Salty Provisions' Espresso Sea Salt and/or Norwegian Flaky Sea Salt.
Let cool completely before cutting.
Serve alone, drizzle with your favorite salted caramel sauce or keep it simple with just a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yum!
You'll love getting salty with Salty Provisions!
