1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

- Transfer batter to prepared pan and bake until top forms a cracked crust and inside looks slightly moist, 30 to 35 minutes.
- Allow to cool, then cut into squares.
Makes 12 large squares.
*I was unable to find Thai chiles at my local super markets. Instead I substituted one habanero chili for all of the Thai chiles.
**Since I dislike walnuts in brownies, I omitted them from the recipe.
