TNT Mexican Brownies

OK, this is a recipe I've spent a couple tries developing, but I got the idea and lots of help from a local bakery. These are brown-sugar cinnamon brownies. You may think it sounds wierd, but it is in fact, very good. Think Chocolate Cinnamon Roll!

Mexican Brownies with Penuche Icing

Brownies

4 oz unsweetened chocolate
4 oz unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
3 extra large eggs OR 4 large eggs
pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tb + 1/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips

1. Put chocolate chips in freezer, pre heat oven 350
2. Melt chocolate, butter, sugar over low heat, or over a double boiler
3. Remove from heat and add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition
4. Add cinnamon, salt, and vanilla
5. Add flour, let brownie batter cool to room temperature.
6. Add chocolate chips, spread in 10x10 pan (they didn't work in 8x8 for me), bake for 20 minutes, then let cool.

Penuche Icing

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 Tb. Butter
3/4 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup confectioner's sugar

1. Over low heat, bring butter, sugar, cream, to a boil, whisking.
2. Remove from heat, add vanilla and confectioner's sugar and whisk until smooth, then let sit 10 minutes.
3. Whisk again until thick, then pour over brownies.
4. Let sit 1 hour.

Hope someone tries these! These are my favorite brownies!

-Tim

Those sound really good! I love brown sugar.

Next time my husband is a very good boy, I'll make him a batch of these.

Brown sugar is, I think, my favorite baking ingredient. Brown sugar and cinnamon is just that much better, too. Let me know when you make them!

I've copied your recipe to try. It sounds great.
Have you ever used Ibarra Mexican chocolate? The cocoa beans and cinnamon are processed together. It comes in disks that are meant to be broken apart for making hot chocolate, but it works great in desserts, too.

I used to do a Mexican Chocolate/Cinn pudding on some catering jobs - folks just love that combination.

Your recipe is duly copied!!! Thanks Tim!

Have to say I haven't tried it that way!
The little triangles are hard to break apart - wonder you don't break a tooth.

Where could I find the Mexican Chocolate? It's a great idea. The cinnamon-chocolate combo is one of my favorites now. It tastes sooo good! No bake cookies with cinnamon and chocolate cupcakes with brown sugar icing are some of favorites, now. That pudding sounds delicious, cjs!
