Double Chocolate brownie cookies drizzled with a spicy Sriracha ganache.
I hope you like your sweet with your spicy, because I made you thick, gooey brownie cookies topped with a unique ganache made with spicy Sriracha sauce.
Are you familiar with Sriracha? I only take every opportunity I get to slather whatever I’m eating with the vibrant red chili sauce. It’s not overly spicy, but it does pack a wee kick. In the ganache, the Sriracha creates a gentle warmth in the background. I even added a pinch of cayenne pepper—totally optional—for an extra kick of heat.
I was a little nervous about these cookies. Chocolate and Sriracha is a fairly odd combination for most. For years chefs and bakers have been pairing chili with chocolate, but not everyone is a chef or a baker. I was concerned that people wouldn’t understand and accept these cookies.
Sriracha in chocolate… Say what?
