Spicy Cinnamon Fudge Brownie Pie

Pin It

Have you ever had chili infused chocolate? It sounds strange but I actually love it! You don't really taste the pepper but you get a nice kick of heat while the chocolate melts in your mouth. 

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...

Spicy Cinnamon Fudge Brownie Pie

by: Back For Seconds
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa 
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 cup cinnamon chips
Preheat oven to 350*
In a large bowl stir together melted butter and cocoa. Add sugar, salt, cayenne, and vanilla. Mix in eggs one at a time. Mix in the flour until well combined and stir in cinnamon chips. Pour into greased 8" spring form pan or pie plate. Bake at 350* about 18-20 minutes. Do not over bake - you want these fudgy!
Let cool. When ready to serve,  I like to top mine with whipped cream or ice cream and extra cinnamon chips. Enjoy!

OHMYGRAVY. So I'm kinda scared of incorporating chili with chocolate, but I DO love cinnamon + chocolate--the combination to me is irresistible! And this pie looks AHHHMAZING.

I love some spice infused into dark chocolate. There was a chocolatier I used to go to in Columbus that made a truffle that was modeled after one in the movie Chocolat. It was one of my faves! Definitely pinning this one. ;)

I had Mexican Hot Chocolate Ice Cream once and it was WAY too spicy for my liking. I'm up for trying any kind of brownie though! (I may or may not sub butterscotch chips for the cinnamon ones because butterscotch chips are AMAZING in brownies.)

Oh my gosh. I'm dying here! I want this badly. I've always wanted to try spicy with brownies. Pinned!

That looks and sounds incredible! I have also wanted to try a spicy chocolate recipe... I think I'll have to give this one a go!

A few years ago I bought a chocolate/chili ice cream in a small black square container. It was from Poland if I remember correctly. It was like your brownies but without cinnamon. It was YUMMY! I think I will enjoy your brownies. :D

I love what adding a few spices does to chocolate! Can't wait to give this a try! Pinned.

I've always wanted to try adding cayenne to chocolate--don't know why I've never braved it, since I love BOTH cayenne and chocolate. I'm going to give it a try after seeing this recipe!!
