Cinnamon Chipotle Brownies

These brownies were so delicious! They are a thick, dense brownie, but still moist and chewy. Everyone was surprised by the little kick of the cinnamon and chipotle, but they liked it. Just enough to make you feel warm inside!

Emeril Lagasse recipe

1 cup butter (2 sticks)
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, roughly chopped
1 1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper
4 eggs
1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels

Grease and flour an 11 x 7 inch baking pan. Set aside.

Heat the butter and the unsweetened chocolate in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted.

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cinnamon and ground chipotle. Add the melted chocolate mixture to the flour/sugar mixture, stirring to combine. Add eggs, mixing until smooth. Stir in chocolate morsels.

Pour mixture into the prepared baking pan.

Bake at 325 degrees until the center is set, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely and then cut into small squares.

Note: I actually doubled the ingredients and baked them in a 9 x 13 pan. It worked out fine, but they were really thick and had to cook for about an hour. In the future, if doubling the ingredients, I will cook in 2 pans so they are not as thick and don't have to cook as long.
