So here's a recipe for brownies with a bit of a kick! You'll need the following ingredients:
- 75g plain flour
- 150g unsalted butter
- 175g caster sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 150g plain chocolate
- 100g chili chocolate
- half a red chili
- 75g chopped almonds
Start by preheating your oven to 150 degrees (C), and grease and line a square cake tin to cook your brownies in.
Put a big glass bowl over a pan of simmering water (make sure the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the water!), and put in all of the chili chocolate, the butter and 100g of the plain chocolate. Stir gently until it's all melted together and is lovely and gooey. Put the bowl aside and let it cool for a moment.
Add the sugar and stir into the chocolate using a mixer (or by stirring really fast with a spoon!). The add the eggs, one at a time, making sure the mixture is nice and smooth.
Add the flour, mix in and then chop up your almonds, chili & leftover plain chocolate. Add this all into the mix, then put it in the oven for 25 - 30 minutes. Brownies should be slightly gooey on the inside, so use a knife to test when it's cooked through, but don't be as strict as you would with a cake!
The result should be lovely chocolately gooey brownies, with a subtle bit of spiciness. Enjoy!
