  • 1
    box Betty Crocker™ Fudge Brownie mix
  • 1/4
    cup water
  • 2/3
    cup vegetable oil
  • 2
  • 1
    teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2
    ounces dark or bittersweet chocolate, chopped


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2
    Prepare Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies as directed on box.
  • 3
    Fold in cayenne pepper and chopped chocolate. Pour into a greased pan.
  • 4
    Bake as directed.
  • 5
    Cut into squares and serve warm or at room temperature.

  • Adjust the amount of cayenne pepper depending on how much heat you enjoy.
  • For a mellower flavor, try cinnamon instead of cayenne pepper—or a combination of the two!
  • These would taste wonderful served warm and topped with freshly whipped cream to contrast the spiciness.
