Mexican Hot Chocolate Brownies

Mexican Hot Chocolate Brownies come together so simply with ingredients you already have in your pantry! It is a rich and fudgy chocolate brownie with a little kick (thanks to the help of some tasty Mexican spices) and a nutty browned butter frosting. Every bite is absolutely bursting with flavor and you are going to go crazy over this recipe!

We are so excited to be partnering with International Delight®  to bring you another fabulous recipe. I don't know about you, but I love my coffee so I always have creamer in the house. I have found this to be an amazing convenient ingredient in cooking and baking sweets. So, of course when I started thinking about Mexican Hot Chocolate Brownies I thought of International Delight.


You may have noticed we kind of have a brownie thing around here. We have 10 brownie recipes on our site and this scrumptious creation makes 11. Of course we also have one in our new cookbook: The Simple Kitchen. Available for pre-order now!

But, this amazing treat will blow your mind. A perfectly fudgy brownie is enough to make me swoon, but load it up with cinnamon and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper for a warmth and little kick that will keep you coming back for more! The frosting... Oh my heavens! Browned butter. Can you see those little flecks of the browned butter in the frosting? It is absolutely heavenly. Creamy and nutty. What more could you ask for?

These brownies are so easy that Munchkin did most of the work and her hand modeling skills are on point! Wouldn't you say? Well, we couldn't keep our hands out of the brownies that's for sure.

By now, you know how much we love their coffee creamers and have for some time (check out our 60+ International Delight recipes).
