Mexican Brownie Recipe

    16 Servings


  • 4 ounces Bittersweet Chocolate, Brownies
  • 1/2 cup Butter, diced
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 large Eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Butter, room temperature
  • 2/3 sifted cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Heavy Cream


  1. Heat the oven to 325°F. Line an 8" X 8" baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a heatproof bowl place the chocolate and butter and microwave until melted. Remove from the microwave and stir well. Alternately, you can melt the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water.
  3. Place the melted chocolate mixture into a mixing bowl, add the sugar and stir until combined.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract, cinnamon and cayenne pepper if using.
  5. With a spatula, fold in the flour.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan and bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the sides are slightly pulling from the sides and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  8. While the brownies are cooling, make the frosting.
  9. Since it's just a little frosting I didn't use my stand mixer. I just mixed the butter with the sugar in a bowl with a silicone spatula, adding a little bit of heavy cream until desired creaminess is obtained.When the brownies are completely cooled, spread the frosting on top of it.
  10. Cut into 16 bars. Enjoy!
