Brownies

I just finished baking some box brownies to take to work tomorrow. Everyone there is a chocoholic! There are days that we glance over to the counter near my desk hoping there’s something on it besides pretzels…our boring standard. As I was leaving today, I told my co-workers I’d bring brownies and I am a woman of my word.

Why do I make box brownies? Because for the most part, they taste better and have better texture than homemade, except for this recipe, which can be made without the chipotle fire power. I found it years ago in the Penzey’s spice catalog and my co-workers like it better than the box ones. I should have made these!

Chipotle Chocolate Chunk Brownie Bites

Bernadette Ghaemmaghami shares, “My husband, Paul, loves spicy food, and he adores these brownie bites. They have a  little kick to them!”

1 Cup all-purpose flour
1⁄4 tsp. salt (omit if using salted butter)
1-2 tsp. GROUND CHIPOTLE PEPPER
1 tsp. GROUND CHINA CINNAMON
1 tsp. POWDERED GINGER
3⁄4 Cup (11⁄2 sticks) butter
4 oz. unsweetened chocolate
3 large eggs
2 Cups sugar
3 TB. water
1 tsp. DOUBLE STRENGTH VANILLA
EXTRACT
2⁄3 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chunk
morsels

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9×13 baking  pan. In a roomy bowl, sift together the flour,  salt, CHIPOTLE PEPPER, CINNAMON and  GINGER and set aside. Carefully melt the butter  and chocolate in a heavy saucepan over very  low heat, stirring frequently. Let cool. In a large  bowl, beat the eggs until foamy. Gradually add  the sugar, stirring constantly. Add the water,  VANILLA and melted butter/chocolate mixture.  Add the dry ingredients and stir quickly until  well blended. Fold in the chocolate chunks.

Pour into the pan and bake at 350° for 30  minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting.
