Mochi Brownies

I wanted to add a little twist to boxed brownie mix. I watched Emmy’s “Emmymadeinjapan” YouTube channel and she made this recipe, which in turn was based off a YT channel called Cooking With Dog.

I should have used a standard pan, but instead used a brownie pan (the one that has metal dividers) which turned into a little bit of a mess, especially after dropping the mochi into each hole! I think it threw off the baking time, and I should have also listened to Emmy and reduced the size of the mochi!. But overall, it’s good. I can’t wait to try it again.

Cinnamon Pepper Brownies

Dessert! This is my favorite hack to jazz up boxed brownie mix. ┬áTake your regular box brownie mix, follow the mix instructions, then add a smidge of cream, a tsp or more of Saigon cinnamon and about 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper and smoked jalepeno pepper. Eat it warm and you’ll faster taste the cinnamon, and then you’ll feel the warmth from the papers at the back of your throat! Add some whipped cream to balance out the chocolate. Delicious!
