Mexican Hot Chocolate Brownies

I have a brownie recipe that I love!  The brownies are delicious and a perfect blend of chewy and cakey.  And they’re made from ingredients that I nearly always have on hand, so it’s my first resort when my brain says “I want chocolate, NOW!”  However, I’ve noticed the recent trend of spicy chocolate products (I recently bought a chocolate bar that had chilies and cinnamon, and later came across brownies of a similar nature).  So naturally I decided to make my own version, which a friend said reminded her of Mexican hot chocolate.  And I thought I’d share them with you, in case you feel like spicing up your standard brownies.  🙂 Oh and PS – if you prefer “normal” brownies (to each his own), just omit the cinnamon and chili powder.

Ingredients:
1/2 c. margarine
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. cocoa powder
1/2 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder

Directions:
1) Melt the margarine.
2) Mix all ingredients until well combined.
3) Pour into greased 8″x8″ pan.
4) Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.
5) Allow to cool, then cut.
6) DEVOUR!!!
