I made these brownies, wow! The only thing I didn’t add was the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, I thought it would be overkill. I think I was right. I roasted 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts, mmmmmmhh! They were devoured by the family. The umami salt flavor is subtle, just makes them very more-ish! This recipe is a keeper.
