Incredible sea salt and double dark chocolate brownie cookie bars made with browned butter, rich dark chocolate, and a sprinkle of sea salt. The ultimate "bad day bars" that are guaranteed to turn your day around!
To brown your butter: Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. The butter will begin to foam. Make sure you whisk consistently during this process. After a couple of minutes, the butter will begin to brown on the bottom of the saucepan. Continue to whisk and remove from heat immediately as soon as the butter begins to brown and give off a nutty aroma.
Immediately transfer the butter to a bowl to prevent burning. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
Cool bars for 10 minutes, cut and serve warm. Sprinkle about 1/2 tsp additional sea salt on top if desired. Makes 12-16 bars.

The bars might take slightly longer than 25 minutes, just be sure not to over bake them. Every oven is different!
You can add in a swirl of caramel, add nuts, peanut butter, or glaze these with frosting for an even more decadent dessert.
