Just Say No: Sriracha Brownies are Not Delicious

I'd like to present two separate facts:

  1. Brownies can be delicious with chili powder.
  2. Sriracha makes just about everything better.

Unfortunately, I'm sad to say that these two separate facts do not add up to awesome when combined.

That's right. I went there. And I'm not sad that I did, but as a public service, I'd like to announce that I don't recommend you do it.

Don't worry too much: I didn't ruin an entire batch. I just happened to have some extra batter after filling my pie shell for the Brownie S'more Pie I made a few days ago, so I filled a couple of cupcake liners with it, and on a whim, added a healthy dose of sriracha on top of each.

The taste, while not completely offensive, was off mark--the spiciness of the sriracha didn't contrast the dark, rich brownie, but rather conflicted with the flavor. They were simply not harmonious.

The brownie pie, however, was extremely delicious. Here's a link to that baby.

Of course, if you're intrigued by Sriracha cookery, you might want to check out The Sriracha Cookbook (though I haven't tried any of the recipes, there IS a dessert chapter!).

I smell olive oil coconut chocolate brownies cooling right now. I'll forget the sriracha frosting.

Such a pity. I love sriracha, and I love brownies. Shame it couldn't make a happy marriage

Sriracha contents: Chili, sugar, salt, garlic, distilled vinegar...

Garlic & vinegar. I'm guessing thats the problem.

I think it would be fair to give them a chance with the sriracha in the batter not just placed on top, out of personal expirence things tend to bake differently when on top to when smaller doses get blended into the base ingredients beforehand. Great blog to take into consideration when planning my sriracha brownie recipe. Thanks :3
