Recipe By Inspired by Emeril’s Chocolate Chipotle Brownies and Martha Stewart’s Peanut-Butter Swirl Brownies

The Ghost Pepper Chile Powder in the peanut butter filling for these brownies will certainly put a little trick in your Halloween-time treats.

Recipe Notes

*The filling is swirled throughout the brownie batter, so the heat from the Ghost Pepper Chile Powder sneaks up on you depending on the bite you get; use less Ghost Pepper Chile Powder for a more mild treat. For an extra layer of kick, use Ghost Pepper Salt instead of Mayan sea salt.

Ingredients

For brownie batter:

1 cup (2 sticks) plus 1 Tbsp. butter

1 cup plus 1 Tbsp. flour


1 1/2 cups sugar


4 eggs

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

For peanut butter filling:

4 Tbsp. butter, melted



1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

3/4 cup smooth peanut butter



Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe

Directions

Step 1: Make batter

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9x9 baking pan with 1 Tbsp. butter then dust with 1 Tbsp. flour. Melt remaining 1 cup butter over medium heat. Whisk in cocoa powder until combined and smooth then remove from heat. Combine flour, sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir in melted chocolate mixture then add eggs and mix until smooth. Fold in chocolate chips.

Step 2: Make peanut butter filling

Whisk Mild Yellow Curry Powder and Ghost Pepper Chile Powder into melted butter. Place mixture in a medium bowl, add remaining ingredients and stir until smooth. Pour two-thirds of the brownie batter into the prepared pan. Spread or drop dollops of the peanut butter filling across the top of the batter. Then pour remaining batter over filling. Use a butter knife to gently swirl the peanut butter filling through the batter.

Step 3: Bake

Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until center is set. Let cool completely before cutting into squares to serve.
