  1. First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper.
  2. Melt butter in a microwave-safe bowl.
  3. Stir chocolate chips into melted butter.  Stir until completely creamy.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, add sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract.  Whisk vigorously for 2 minutes, until light and frothy.
  5. Then, pour in the melted chocolate mixture.  Stir to combine.
  6. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, and sea salt.  Stir until a thick batter forms.
  7. Transfer brownie batter to the lined pan.  Smooth into one even layer.
  8. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out with only moist crumbs.
  9. Finally, remove from oven.  Allow brownies to fully cool before slicing and serving.

  • Brownies are done when a toothpick inserted comes out with only moist crumbs.
  • Allow brownies to fully cool before slicing into.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
