Spicy Brownies

Live life with a little spice.

This is probably one of the easiest recipes I will post here. (It’s also kindof cheating… you’ll see why.)

As a college student, the chances of me finding time to bake brownies from scratch are pretty slim. However, lucky for me, Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie mix  is dairy free!!! (And found in so many grocery stores!)

With this being said, I wanted to make the brownies a bit more exciting. I love spicy food, so I did some research and here is my version of Mexican brownies. (BTW Oreos are also dairy free and could be added to brownies. Just a fun fact.)


Follow the instructions on the box –

  • Brownie mix
  • 2 eggs (I like my brownies fudgy)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl, and add in the cayenne pepper.
  3. Follow the box for cook time instructions.

That’s it! Enjoy!

P.S. If you accidentally add too much cayenne pepper people will think they are having an allergic reaction. Speaking from experience.

About The Dairy QueenThe Dairy Queen

Just a New England gal stuck in rural Virginia. Can be found avoiding dairy at all costs. Talents include speed reading ingredient labels and enjoying ice cream via smell. If I could major in Spotify playlist construction and dairy free cooking, I would.

I have been blessed with a dairy allergy and have not touched a cheesy piece of pizza in years. Thus, here we are. I hope you find these recipes simple, inexpensive, and delicious. I have years of experience avoiding dairy, so hopefully my adventures can help you out.
