Splendour Sea Salt Brownies

Splendour Sea Salt Brownies

These Brownies are sure to please your loved ones across the board. Having a good brownie mix you can change up with a few add-ins or swaps makes it one of the most versatile chocolate-based recipes out there. Have fun with it!

 I chose the Morning Splendour Light Roast due to the citrus notes that always compliment chocolate the best.  Its Dark chocolate taste blends in with the rich chocolate in this recipe to make sure you are getting as much chocolate flavor on your palate as possible. I added coconut oil and coconut flakes to brighten up the flavor as well as giving it great moist texture. The pink Himalayan Sea salt on top is utterly amazing and you won’t regret it! 

Sea salt with coffee and chocolate? 

Perfect match. 

Any of the Misty Tree Coffees will work in this recipe, just depends on the mood you are in.  The Aurora Decaf is great to make it caffeine-free!
