Gluten & Dairy-free Orange Fireball Brownies
Are you in need of a new brownie recipe, because if you are you really need to try my favorite gluten & dairy-free brownie recipe! I guarantee these brownies taste a little different, but when you sink your teeth into that first bite you’ll say, ‘Mmm’ and then seconds later, ‘Wow! What is this?’
What makes these brownies so good?
A hint of orange mixed in with the chocolate is the first zing of yum but wait…the cayenne pepper that slowly reveals itself on the back of your throat is what sends these brownies over the top. I literally can eat the whole pan and I am one who doesn’t like a lot of spice but trust me, these brownies contain the perfect amount. They offer just a tiny hint of heat in every bite.
We have a fabulous chocolate shop in my town. Maybe you have heard of them or even tried their chocolates. Once you have, you will never forget them. Actually, they are who inspired me to create this recipe. They sell one chocolate bar in particular that is one of my favorites, the Spicy Habanero Orange Espresso Dark Chocolate Bar. They sell world-wide and worth a taste! Check out COWGIRL CHOCOLATES here.
If you are in a pinch for a quick dessert pick up a ready-made gluten-free brownie mix (Betty Crocker or Krusteaz) and add orange extract, orange zest and cayenne pepper to the mix. It will save you about 15 minutes and still tastes great.
