Food fashions fade in and out like pouffy skirts. It’s kind of tricky to know when to bite. The latest seems to be a hot and sweet tongue teasing, and we’re here to reassure you that this trend is for real. Sophisticated hedonists have always known that stoking up contrasts arouses your sensory pleasure… This is our own recipe for brownies that’ll have them on their knees, weeping and begging you for more:
The B*itches Brownies
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
5ozs unsweetened chocolate
1 ½ sticks unsalted butter
1 ¾ cups sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
½-1 tsp crushed hot pepper flakes (up to you how hot you like it)
Pinch of kosher salt
¾ cup walnuts (optional)
8” square buttered baking dish
Melt chocolate and butter in microwave for approximately 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.
