Brown Butter Brownie Sticks
Browned Butter Brownie Sticks, adapted from Yes To Yum
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into slices3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 large egg + 1 egg white
1/2 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup all purpose flour
pinch of fine sea salt
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips + more for sprinkling on top
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter and flour a loaf pan or make a sling from some pre-cut parchment and set aside.
In a medium saucepan set on medium heat, melt and then brown the butter (for a great tutorial, visit this link). When it is browned, remove from the pan and pour into another dish (taking it out of the hot pan stops the cooking process and prevents the butter from burning).
Add the sugar to the browned butter and whisk to combine. Add the eggs and vanilla and whisk to combine. Add cocoa powder, flour, and sea salt and mix to combine. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips, trying not to over mix.
Pour the batter into the loaf pan and spread evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle a few additional chocolate chips on top.
Bake for 23 - 28 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean with only small crumbs. Allow to cool in the pan before removing and cutting into 6 - 8 slices.
