A thick fudgy layer of brownies with sweet heat from red chilies and chocolate -- all balanced with a rich, citrus cream cheese frosting.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven following directions on box for type of pan used. Grease 8x8-inch baking pan; set aside.
  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 icing 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.

Simplification - Beat 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate into Duncan Hines® Cream Cheese Creamy Home-Style Frosting. Use in place of above recipe.

For extra fun, pipe a red chili pepper on each serving using store-bought decorating icing in a tube.
