A 20-ounce box Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Premium Brownie Mix
NONSTICK COOKING SPRAY
INSTANT ESPRESSO POWDER
PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
MALDON FLAKY SEA SALT
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a 8x8 or 9x9 metal pan with parchment paper for easy clean up & lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside & gather ingredients.
Add melted butter, coffee, egg, instant espresso (if using), & vanilla extract to a medium bowl. Stir until fully combined with a wooden spoon. Add in brownie mix & stir until just combined. Transfer batter to the baking pan & spread into a uniform layer.
Bake for 40 minutes or until the center comes out relatively free of crumbs. Don't overbake! If needed, check the brownies for doneness 3-5 minutes ahead of bake time indicated on box.
Allow to cool in the pan completely before cutting into 9 or 12 squares. Finish with a generous sprinkling of flaky Maldon sea salt, as desired.
