Preheat your oven and prepare your baking dish.


Before you begin making your delicious salted chocolate and hazelnut brownies, you’ll want to make sure your oven is preheated and that you have your baking dish prepared. Preheat your oven to 350°F (176°C) and then grease an 8×8 inch (20×20 cm) square baking dish with butter or cooking spray. You can also line the baking dish with parchment paper for easy clean-up. Once your oven and baking dish are prepped, you’re ready to start making the most scrumptious brownies! In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup (125 g) of all-purpose flour and 1/2 teaspoon (2 g) of baking powder until evenly combined. Then set this mixture aside for later use. In a separate medium bowl, mix together 1 cup (200 g) of melted butter, 1 1/2 cups (300 g) of granulated sugar, and 2 teaspoons (10 g) of salt until they are blended together. Add in 4 large eggs one at a time, whisking after each addition until everything is fully incorporated.

In a bowl, mix together your dry ingredients.


Start by gathering the following ingredients into a bowl: 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Use a whisk or a spoon to mix them together until everything is evenly distributed. Once you’ve done that, add in 1/2 cup of cocoa powder and mix until there are no lumps. Finally, stir in 1/2 cup of hazelnut flour and mix everything together until it is thoroughly combined. You now have the dry ingredients ready for your salted chocolate and hazelnut brownies! Now let’s move on to preparing the wet ingredients. In a separate bowl, cream together 1/2 cup of butter with 1 cup of sugar until light and fluffy. Add 2 eggs one at a time, mixing each one in before adding the next. Lastly, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and mix until just incorporated.

In another bowl, melt your chocolate and butter.


Melting chocolate and butter together is a simple process and requires only a few items: some chocolate, butter, and a bowl. Begin by breaking up the chocolate into small pieces and add it to the bowl. Next, cut your butter into small cubes and add it to the same bowl as the chocolate. Place the bowl over a saucepan of boiling water, making sure the bowl does not touch the water. Heat the bowl on medium heat until the chocolate and butter have melted and mixed together, stirring occasionally. Once the chocolate and butter are completely melted and mixed, you can remove the bowl from the heat. Now you are ready to move on to the next step!

Stir in your sugar and eggs.


Once your chocolate and butter mixture is combined with the dry ingredients, it’s time to add in the sugar and eggs. The eggs are necessary to bind the brownies together and help create their dense, chewy texture. Add in your sugar slowly and whisk together until everything is well combined. Finally, add in your eggs one at a time and whisk until everything is incorporated. This part of the recipe is essential for creating the ultimate salted chocolate and hazelnut brownies! Next up, you’ll be adding the chopped dark chocolate chunks and ground hazelnuts. Incorporate both into the batter carefully – ensuring an even distribution throughout. As you mix, you should start to see those delicious little chunks throughout the batter. If desired, you can also add an extra sprinkle of salt over top before placing your batter in the preheated oven.

Add in your dry ingredients and mix until everything is combined.


Once you have melted the chocolate and butter, it’s time to add in your dry ingredients. Start by sifting together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a bowl and stirring to combine. Next, add the hazelnuts and mix until everything is evenly distributed. Finally, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until all of the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Be sure not to overmix as this could result in a tough, rubbery texture. Once everything is combined, your batter is ready for baking! Preheat your oven to 350F (175C). Grease an 8×8 inch baking pan with butter or non-stick cooking spray, then pour the batter into the pan and spread out with a spatula so it’s even. Sprinkle some extra chopped hazelnuts on top if desired. Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool before serving. For an extra special touch, sprinkle flaked sea salt on top right before serving. You can also top with some freshly whipped cream or ice cream for an added indulgence. Enjoy your salted chocolate and hazelnut brownies with a hot cup of tea or coffee!

Pour your batter into your baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes.


Once all of your ingredients are mixed together and your batter is ready, pour it into your baking dish. If you are using a 9×13 inch pan, spread the batter out evenly so that it covers the whole bottom. Make sure to lightly grease the pan beforehand with butter or cooking spray.
Bake the brownies in the preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 25-30 minutes. Check on them at the 25 minute mark by inserting a toothpick into the center. If the toothpick comes out clean, then they are done baking. If not, bake for an additional 5 minutes and check again with the toothpick.
Once they are done baking, allow them to cool completely before cutting into squares. This ensures that your brownies will not crumble apart. Once cooled, enjoy your delicious, homemade salted chocolate and hazelnut brownies!

Allow your brownies to cool before cutting them into squares and enjoy!


Once your brownies have finished baking, it is important to allow them to cool before cutting them into squares. Leaving them in the baking dish for about 10 minutes should do the trick. Once they’re cool, use a sharp knife or pizza wheel to cut them into evenly sized squares. You can then transfer them onto a cooling rack or plate and enjoy!
Salted chocolate and hazelnut brownies are a delicious treat that are easy to make. Follow these steps and you’ll be able to whip up a batch of these decadent treats that will make your mouth water. They’re sure to be a hit with friends and family alike! Enjoy!
