Coffee, Caramel, Cayenne Brownies 

Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens Magazine

8 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

1 cup butter

2 cups all purpose flour

¼ cup unsweetened Cocoa powder

2 ½ cups sugar

1 tbsp freshly ground coffee beans, finely ground

2 – 3 teaspoons ground cayenne, chili, or chipotle powder

1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

6 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

8 oz jar of Fat Toad Farm Goat’s Milk Caramel Sauce

 

In a small saucepan, cook and stir chocolate and butter over low heat until melted and smooth. Remove from heat; cool slightly.

Preheat oven to 325°.  Line a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over the edges of the pan (or use two smaller pans).  Grease foil with a little olive oil.

In a small bowl, stir together flour and ¼ cup cocoa powder.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together sugar, finely ground coffee, cayenne, and cinnamon. Add chocolate mixture.  Beat with an electric mixer on medium for 1 minute, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating on low speed after each addition, until just combined.  Beat in vanilla extract.  Gradually beat in flour mixture until just combined.  Beat on medium speed for 1 minute.  Pour batter into prepared baking pan, spreading evenly, about 1 ½ inches thick.

Bake for 35 – 40 minutes of until edges start to pull away from sides of pan. A knife stuck in the middle should come out clean.  Cool in pan on a wire rack.  Lift brownie out of pan with foil edges and remove foil.

Top with powdered sugar and drizzle with Fat Toad Farm Goat’s Milk Caramel Sauce!
