I'd like to present two separate facts:
- Brownies can be delicious with chili powder.
- 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!).
