I made these last week and they are DELICIOUS. I did cut the salt in the Matcha Swirl to 1/2 tsp because I thought 1 tsp is overwhelming. I think it’s probably to cut the sweetness, however, it’s still pretty salty with just the 1/2 tsp and what can I say – I have a sweet tooth. The brownie itself was deliciously fudgy! YUM
