- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate (65%), finely chopped

Preheat a convection oven to 325 degrees F or a regular oven to 350 degrees F. Have a 9-inch square baking dish ready.
Melt the butter in a saucepan, then remove from the heat and drop in the chopped chocolate. Let stand for 2 minutes, then stir until smooth.
Sift the flour with the cocoa powder into a bowl. Whisk in the salt and set aside.
