My brother sent me a bar of spicy chocolate when he was in Germany (ahhhh, German chocolate….) and I have been wanting to incorporate those flavors into one of my own treats ever since.
Obviously, I made brownies. They are my weakness, as you know.
I made the same brownie pie that I shared with you in my first week of blogging here, but instead of peanut butter and bananas I added cayenne pepper and cinnamon chips.
This was KILLER. So rich and fudgy. Intense chocolate flavor with a surprising spice and warmth. This is a perfect dessert to warm up with on these cool fall nights. You can increase or decrease the amount of pepper depending on your taste. Top it off with ice cream or whipped cream to balance out the heat. Mmmmm…
