These are by far my favorite brownies EVER! I love their spicy cinnamon undertone and the fudge texture! They are great for BBQ’s  or dinner parties and I even use them to make some of my signature Snickerdoodle ice cream sandwiches. 

 
Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 30-35 mins
Serves: 24
Rich chocolate brownies with lots of cinnamon!
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons sifted flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened dutch unprocessed) 
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter (12 tablespoons)
  • 6 oz unsweetened chocolate (Bakers, is the brand I use)
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups bakers ultra fine sugar
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
 
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour (or cheat like me and use Pam for baking) a 9×13 pan and set aside.
  2. In a pan on the stove, heat on low till melted and combined (takes about 5 minutes): the butter and the unsweetened chocolate bar, then set aside to cool
  3. In a bowl sift and combine flour, cinnamon, cocoa powder, and salt.
  4. In a separate glass bowl (or a stand mixer is what I recommend with the whisk or paddle attachments), combine sugar and eggs, vanilla and beat till you get a very fluffy texture (similar to egg whites – might take 5-8 minutes)
  5. Combine the cooled melted chocolate mixture with the flour/cocoa powder. It will be the consistency of tomato paste. 
  6. Once the sugar/egg mixture is nice and fluffy (you can set it aside if needed but no longer than 2-3 minutes or it will flatten) then add in 4th’s the flour/cocoa paste mix. 
  7. Continue stirring till fully incorporated and then add the chocolate chips and place in greased pan
  8. Bake for 30 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from pan.
  9. Let cool completely and then DEVOUR!
