Okay, these totally are some of the most amusing brownies I ever made.
I started with this recipe, and given my usual ability to follow recipes, quickly deviated from it.
First things: Substituted jalapeños for the cayenne pepper; added in coffee grounds as well, decided I didn’t want lumpy brownies with bits of jalapeño in it, so strained them out.
Secondly: I didn’t have chocolate chips, so a fair bit of a chocolate bar and some cocoa powder went in instead.
Thirdly: I dropped the vanilla in favor of hazelnuts, left out the ginger because I had none, added paprika, and, well, see what I mean by I don’t follow recipes?
They’re still tasty, though.
