I know it wouldn’t be quite the same to me.  Chocolate can make any day better.  It’s the perfect way to indulge, celebrate, unwind.  You name it, there’s always a reason for chocolate.

Perfect! | The Cookie RookieI first have to admit that I used a boxed brownie mix for the base of this recipe.  I KNOW.  But are you surprised? I love easy recipes.  I have made brownies from scratch, and they were delicious.  But in a pinch, brownie mix never fails.  I think it’s one of the best pre-made options out there.  I really don’t think there is much of a difference between homemade brownies and box mix brownies (I KNOW…shoot me) SO if you have time to make your brownies from scratch, that is wonderful.  If you don’t, do not feel bad about it.  You can make them your own by adding to them, like these fun spicy bite-sized brownies.  No one will ever know they started out in a box!  Okay, please don’t be mad that I just admitted that! :)

Ingredients

  • 1 box brownie mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Pinch ground cloves
  • 1 cup powdered sugar for glaze
  • 2 tablespoons cup milk for glaze
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon for glaze

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Mix together ingredients for brownies according to box instructions
  3. Add the cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and cloves to the brownie mix
  4. Pour mix into greased small muffin pan and bake for approximately 8-10 minutes, watching carefully. Since the pan is so small, they will cook faster than it says on the box. Take out of the oven when you can insert a toothpick into the middle of the brownie and it comes out clean.
  5. Mix together the powdered sugar, milk, and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Add more or less milk depending on desired consistency. (more milk with make the glaze much thinner)
  6. Glaze each brownie bite and enjoy!

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who will still use a boxed brownie mix as a base for my recipe! It's just so easy, how can we not?
