Fleur De Sel Brownie Bites

Sweet and salty? Yes, please!
What you'll need:

1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 large eggs
3/4 cup cocoa (I used Hershey's and it came out nicely)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Fleur de Sel (flaky sea salt, for sprinkling on top--I used Maldon Sea Salt which you can buy at Trader Joes, or Sur La Table (my weakness) or even Amazon @ http://www.amazon.com/Maldon-Flaked-Sea-Salt/dp/B0006FS4TI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1333452409&sr=8-2)*I usually half this recipe to make about 24 brownie bites

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Begin by spraying a mini muffin pan with non stick cooking spray or line the tray with mini paper cups-so cute! Place butter in medium saucepan on the stove and heat over medium heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat and stir in sugar and vanilla.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with spoon after each addition.

Add cocoa powder and stir until well blended.  Then add the flour, baking powder and salt; stir until combined.

Fill each muffin cup slightly more than halfway full and sprinkle the salt on top of each one.  You just need a tiny pinch for each brownie!

Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of a brownie bite. (Mine only took 12 minutes)
Enjoy--and be sure to share!
