Spicy Cinnamon Brownies--Cajun Style

The one ingredient in this recipe which justifies the title, Spicy Cinnamon Brownies--Cajun Style, is the 1/4 teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper which is added to the mix. But, don't fret! That part is completely optional. We can omit the ground red pepper and still create a spicy and rich brownie mix which will have your family and friends coming back to you and asking for another serving. Guaranteed!


Spicy Cinnamon Brownies-Cajun Style
  • 1 (19.8 oz) box Best Choice Walnut Brownie Mix (Ultra Moist)
  • 4 oz. Nestle' Toll House Semi-Sweet Morsels
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tbs. water
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 4 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese, room temperature


  1. in a bowl add together the chocolate morsels, oil, eggs, water, cinnamon and pepper, mix well
  2. slowly add and thoroughly mix-in the Best Choice Walnut Brownie Mix
  3. add the room temperature cream cheese and swirl-mix the cheese throughout the wet mixture
  4. poor in a well buttered (or oiled) 13" x 9" x 2" glass or metal pan
  5. bake for 21 - 24 minutes at 350 degrees F. (do not over-bake or brownies will turn out dry)
Note: You will know when the brownies are done by inserting a dry toothpick in the center. If you pull it out and the toothpick is wet with mix on it, then you will need to bake your brownies for a couple more minutes. If the toothpick comes out dry it means they are done.

Give your brownies time to cool down before cutting them into squares.

So, the next time you want to create some spice in your life (and your desert), try this Spicy Cinnamon Brownies--Cajun Style recipe out for size. You will be glad you did.
