I adopted this recipe in 2006. I haven't yet tried these brownies, but I plan to very soon.

The brownies are great. I seeded the jalapeños and only added 3 Thai chili peppers. I did a taste test w/ my b-friend and co-workers - all said it could be spicier, so I am making them just as the directions instruct. Update will be later :)
