Cocoa Brownies infused with CHORIZO!

Alton Brown's Cocoa Brownie, Featuring Chorizo Sausage!Cocoa Brownies (to be incorporated with Chorizo)

The plan is to take Alton Brown’s Cocoa Brownies recipe, referenced here, and incorporate chorizo sausage into it. This could result in disaster, but we’re willing to give it a shot. Photos will be added shortly, upon completion of the project.

Recipe courtesy Alton Brown

  • Prep Time:15 min
  • Cook Time: 1 hr 0 min
  • Level:Easy
  • Serves:16 brownies


  • Soft butter, for greasing the pan
  • Flour, for dusting the buttered pan
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar, sifted
  • 1 cup brown sugar, sifted
  • 8 ounces melted butter
  • 11/4 cups cocoa, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup flour, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Butter and flour an 8-inch square pan.

In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the eggs at medium speed until fluffy and light yellow. Add both sugars. Add remaining ingredients, and mix to combine.

Pour the batter into a greased and floured 8-inch square pan and bake for 45 minutes. Check for doneness with the tried-and-true toothpick method: a toothpick inserted into the center of the pan should come out clean. When it’s done, remove to a rack to cool. Resist the temptation to cut into it until it’s mostly cool.

    Okay… we added bacon to AB’s yeast doughnuts, but chorizo in his brownies?!?! That’s inspired!
