Spicy Cayenne Brownies

Who doesn't love desserts? When I am craving dessert I don't want it to be too sweet, brownies are a great option. They can be very versatile, different kinds of chocolate chips, walnuts, fruit, the list keeps going. I started thinking about all my favorite sweet and spicy food, always a balanced pair, and thought why not try adding heat to brownies?
