Gluten & Dairy Free Chilli Chocolate Brownie Hearts

Gluten & Dairy Free Chilli Chocolate Brownie Hearts

The basics

Preparation Time: 15 mins

Cooking Time: 18-22 mins

Serves/Makes: 5 hearts

Ingredients

You will need:

1 x 400g Delicious Alchemy Chocolate Brownie Mix

100g unsalted butter or dairy free alternative

2 large eggs

1-2 chillies, finely chopped (depending how spicy you want it)

1/2tsp chilli powder

40g dark chocolate (or dairy free chocolate)

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan. Line the base and sides of a 20cm (8 inch) square tin with greaseproof paper. Make sure the paper sticks out 2.5cm (about an inch) above the rim of the tin.

Step 2

Add the brownie mix to a bowl and add 2/3 of the chopped chillies and chilli powder. Melt the butter (or dairy free alternative) and pour this over the brownie mix and stir until the mix starts to form a batter.

Step 3

Lightly beat the eggs, add to the mix and stir together well.

Step 4

Spread the batter into the tin and smooth the top. Bake for 18-22 minutes. When they’re done, leave them to cool in the tin for 20 minutes before lifting out and transferring to a cooling rack. Use the greaseproof paper to help you lift the brownie out.

Step 5

Once completely cool, cut out 5 hearts and carefully flip them over onto a plate.

Step 6

Melt the chocolate in the microwave and drizzle over the top of each brownie heart. Sprinkle over the remaining chopped chillies.
