Spicy Fudge Brownies #SundaySupper

Sweet and spicy is the ultimate combination. These thick and fudgy brownies are spiced up with 
cinnamon and chipotle powder, which gives them the perfect little kick!

Everyone knows I love my sweets. Especially chocolate. Chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookies, brownies...I definitely don't discriminate. Something else I like is spicy foods. Not "my lips and mouth are burning" type of spicy, but a little bit of spice. A nice little kick.

This week our #SundaySupper theme is "Spice is Nice and Some Like it Hot," and I couldn't wait to make something sweet and spicy. My first thought was to make a spicy sweet grilled chicken since grilling season is here, but then I decided to make a dessert. With chocolate of course. And then these beautiful Spicy Fudge Brownies were born.

Chipotle powder, cinnamon and chocolate are a fantastic combination in these brownies. They are super thick and fudgy, sweet, and a little spicy. If you love heat, feel free to add more chipotle powder. I think a teaspoon is enough to give the brownies just the right amount of heat.

Spicy Fudge Brownies
Author: Sarah Bates | The Chef Next Door
Makes 12 brownies

Ingredients:
6 ounces high quality dark chocolate, broken into pieces
1 stick unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon chipotle powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a square baking pan with aluminum foil, allowing some to hang over the sides of the pan. Spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. 

In a large bowl, add the chocolate and butter. Microwave on high for one minute, then stir. Continue microwaving in 30-seconds increments, stirring each time, until the mixture is completely melted and smooth.

Add the sugar to the chocolate mixture and mix well. Add in the eggs and vanilla and whisk until combined. Fold in the flour, spices and salt. Pour the batter into the baking pan and spread evenly. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean. Set on a wire rack to cool.

Using the foil as handles, remove the brownies from the pan. Cut into 12 squares and serve.

Bon Appetit!
