Sometimes it’s tough to be a food blogger. I have to ask difficult questions like, “can brownies be too fudgey”? Because these are the most fudge-like brownies I’ve ever made. I used Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate Chips, cocoa powder, and Trader Joe’s 72% cacao Dark Chocolate. That’s some serious chocolate power! These brownies not only have a rich texture, but they also have an interesting flavor with the addition of crystallized ginger and sea salt.
I was not entirely sure that I was happy with how the recipe turned out. Of course, that didn’t stop me from bringing them to a party. It also didn’t stop me from eating the brownie edges. (You know, the pieces that weren’t suitable to bring to the party.) These are not classic brownies, but rather like squares of ginger and sea salt fudge. Once your taste buds know what to expect, they’ll be happy indeed.
