Spice Up Your Night with Warm Brownies

Posted: Updated:

While we have a healthy sense of humor and spend a lot of time writing with our tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek (Bitches on a Budget, need we say more?) we never kid around when it comes to eating good food.


Warm out of the oven simple to make brownies accompanied by a tall glass of cold milk are just the things for a night at home with friends gathered around the television. Rich and chocolaty, not too sweet these little babies finish with a sexy, spicy zing.

The Bitches' Devil Brownies

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

5ozs unsweetened chocolate

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter

3 eggs

1 3/4 cups sugar

1 cup flour

1 tsp vanilla

1/2-1 tsp crushed hot pepper flakes (up to you how hot you like it)

Pinch of kosher salt

3/4 cup walnuts (optional)

8" square buttered baking dish

Melt chocolate and butter in microwave for one and half to two minutes. Stir to completely dissolve chocolate. Add sugar and mix until you can't see granules. Beat eggs and vanilla with a fork, add to chocolate and sugar mixture, and stir until glossy and smooth. Mix in hot pepper flakes, salt, and walnuts. Stir in flour until everything is mixed evenly together. Pour into buttered baking dish. Bake approximately 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out smooth. (Our advice is to slightly under-bake these, they taste even better).

So easy and you'll look like a hip baking genius-you owe us big time.

P.S. This is our basic brownie recipe all tarted up. Substitute other spices if you like or skip the spice for the best brownies ever.
