  3. Mix 1/2 cup dark brown sugar and the regular sugar in a flat dish. Set aside.
  4. Add 1 3/4 cup dark brown sugar into the melted butter till there are no clumps. Add the familla and salt, followed by the egg and then the egg yolk. Mix well. Let sit 3 minutes, then whisk 30 seconds. Do this cycle 3 times to break down the sugars.
