Chocolate-Chipotle Brownies

Nonstick cooking spray
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 cup butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
2-1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon instant espresso coffee powder
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 to 2 teaspoons ground chipotle powder
6 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
Unsweetened cocoa powder


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with
    foil, extending the foil over the edges of the pan. Lightly coat foil
    with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. In a small saucepan, combine
    chocolate and butter. Cook and stir over low heat until melted and
    smooth. Cool slightly. In a small bowl, combine flour and cocoa powder;
    set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, combine sugar, espresso coffee powder, cinnamon, and
    chipotle powder. Add chocolate mixture. Beat with an electric mixer on
    medium speed for 1 minute, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Add eggs,
    one at a time, beating on low speed after each addition just until
    combined. Beat in vanilla just until combined. Add flour mixture, 1/2
    cup at a time, beating on low speed just until combined. Beat on medium
    speed for 1 minute more. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan.

  3. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 45 minutes or
    until edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool in pan on
    a wire rack. Using the edges of the foil, lift the uncut brownies out of
    the pan. Sprinkle with unsweetened cocoa powder. Cut into bars. Makes 32
