Ghost Pepper Brownies

For the Brownies:
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon Ghost Pepper Pepper Puree (adjust to your heat level)

For the Topping (Optional):
1/2 cup chocolate chips
A pinch of sea salt

Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper.

Prepare Wet Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix well until smooth.

Prepare Dry Ingredients: In another bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, and salt.

Add Heat: Carefully add the ghost pepper puree to the wet mixture. Stir well to combine.

Combine: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring just until combined. Do not overmix.

Pour and Bake: Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it out evenly.

Optional Topping: If using, sprinkle the chocolate chips and a pinch of sea salt over the top of the batter.

Bake: Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.

Cool: Allow the brownies to cool in the pan on a wire rack.

Slice and Serve: Once cooled, slice the brownies into squares and serve.
