This recipe is a lovely twist on an old favourite. Have them on their own, or fresh out of the oven with cream or vanilla ice cream for decadence! 

Method

  1. Grease and line a roasting tin or medium sized sponge tin. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C or gas mark 4.
  2. In a saucepan, melt the butter and cocoa together until incorporated. Allow to cool for a few minutes.
  3. In your mixer, mix the eggs and gradually add the sugar.
  4. Add the butter mixture and vanilla essence and mix until smooth.
  5. Sift the flour and chilli powder together and add to the mixture.
  6. If you are using chocolate chips, mix these in using a spoon to make sure they aren't lost in the mixture.
  7. Pour into the tin and bake for around 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted.
  8. Leave to cool in the tin and transfer to a cooling rack before cutting into squares and dusting with icing sugar
