Whisk, Large bowl, Medium sized bowl, 8" x 8" baking pan
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) salted butter
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chili powder
- 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
Preheat oven to 325°F. Place chopped walnuts on baking sheet. Lightly sprinkle chipotle chili powder over walnuts. Bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, grease and flour an 8" x 8" baking pan; set aside. Remove seeds from chipotle peppers and roughly chop. Add oil and peppers to blender and blend on high for 2 minutes until an emulsion forms.
In a medium-sized bowl, combine butter and semi-sweet chocolate. Heat in microwave on low setting until melted, add melted chocolate/butter, mix with pepper/oil blend, whisk and set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, and chipotle powder. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir well. Add slightly beaten eggs. Stir together until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake at 325°F for 40 minutes or until center is set. Quickly take pan out of oven. Using the rim of an 8" or smaller diameter bowl, stamp out round brownie shape. Quickly remove brownie shape using a flat spatula and place in bowl to create bowl shape. Let cool for 15 minutes. When serving, take brownie bowl out of the bowl in which you shaped it, and serve filled with Blue Bunny® Premium Chocolate ice cream.
