Glossary of Printing Terms:
Burning-In

Giving additional exposure to part of the image projected on an enlarger easel to make that area of the print darker.

This is accomplished after the basic exposure by extending the exposure time to allow additional image-forming light to strike the areas in the print you want to darken while holding back the image-forming light from the rest of the image.

Sometimes called printing-in.
