Yes, I realize the name is quite a mouth-full but then so is this delicious brownie! So it is only fitting. I worked hard to find the perfect balance of flavors in this little bundle of joy.
I had three heavy components that could easily steal the spotlight. The raw cacao, the cinnamon and the cayenne. Instead of just one of them being the star, I made the sure the entire cast was on an even playing ground.
With your first bite, the texture and chocolate instantly affirm that you are eating a brownie, as you chew, the hint of cinnamon comes in and then after you swallow, the cayenne says, “Me, me! Don’t forget I am here too!” But not to worry it’s not very hot (could be if you wanted it to be) it has just enough heat to give that, “Hmm, what is that I taste?” look.
But lets not forget the Cinnamon Cream. Now here, I wanted the battle of textures. The chewiness of the brownie and the creamy mouth-feel of a thick creamy center.
When you were growing up did you ever eat Ding Dongs or Twinkies? I did and the first thing I did was stick my tongue right into the center cream and scoop it out.
It’s sort of funny the little rituals we create when we are young. For instance, for years I peeled my grapes. Yep… peeled my grapes. lol Why? Oh who knows. I must have been extremely bored and the habit just sort of stuck… but luckily not into my adulthood. :) Anyway, I hope you enjoy these as much as we did. I had Bob take a tray of them into our favorite local coffee shop and they were a hit. So, with that said, I leave you so that you can get busy making these.
