  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • ¾ tsp. ground red pepper

  • ¼ cup water

  • 4 tbsp. (½ stick) butter or margarine, softened

Baking Instructions

  2. Blend together brownie mix, chili powder and red pepper. Add concentrate and rind to water; prepare brownie mix as described on box using eggs, water and oil. Spread evenly into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in center of oven 42 - 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Place on wire rack; cool completely.
  4. Make frosting by placing cream cheese, butter and concentrate in medium bowl. Beat with electric mixer on medium-high 2 minutes or until creamy and smooth. Gradually add confectioners’ sugar, beating until creamy and smooth. Frost cooled brownies.
  5. Garnish with additional grated orange rind or zest and cayenne pepper, if desired. Store covered in refrigerator.
  6. Tips:
  7. Simplification - Beat 1 tbsp. orange juice concentrate into cream cheese frosting. Use in place of above recipe.
  8. For extra fun, pipe a red chili pepper on each serving using store-bought decorating icing in a tube.

Flour baking spray

For those who bake by coating your pans with grease and flour, do yourself a hugh favor, try a baking spray with the flour already in it. You will never have a "floury" ;mess again! One nice, even coating is all you need. Your baked goods come out beautifully, tasting and looking delicious.


Using Two or More Glazes

Using Two or More Glazes

When applying two glazes to a dessert, like to make a herringbone or spider web design, make sure both glazes are the same temperature so when you apply them, they come together instead of layering on top of each other.
