Supernatural Brownies

I made this brownie recipe from the NYT. The only change I made was to add a bit of salt (1/2 tsp larger-crystal kosher salt, in addition to the 1/2 tsp called for).

They’re somewhat similar to the brownies I usually make; the main difference is that the unsweetened chocolate I usually use is replaced here with bittersweet. Since the amount of sugar isn’t reduced, you might expect the brownies to be pretty sweet, and that’s what happened. Personally, I prefer my brownies (and my chocolate) more chocolatey than sweet, so I’m not that excited by the recipe. Though I may try using brown sugar in my recipe (mine calls for 2c white sugar, instead of 1c of each) and reducing the eggs, as done here.
