  • Canola, or vegetable oil for frying
  • 6 large Cinnamon Cocoa Brownies
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • In a medium, sturdy pan, heat the oil to 350°F, using a candy thermometer. (You can also test with a small pinch of bread, or batter...if it sizzles and browns within a minute or so, it's ready).  
  • Using a large knife, roughly chop the brownies and form into 8 balls.  Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and sugar.
  • Add the vanilla, eggs, and milk to the dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated.  The batter will be fairly thick.
  • Add the brownie balls to the batter and move around (fingers work well) until coated.
  • 2 to 3 at a time, carefully add the coated brownie balls to the hot oil.  Use a fork to rotate the balls in the oil so they brown evenly all over.  Cook for about 2 minutes, until golden brown.  Remove with metal spatula or spider and place on paper towel-lined plate.  Repeat with remaining brownie balls.
  • Mix together the confectioner's sugar and cinnamon and place in a small sieve and gently sprinkle over the fritters.
  • Cut fritters down the middle and drizzle with homemade butterscotch sauce.


  • Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
  • Add the brown sugar and stir until completely dissolved.  Add the cream and bring to a gentle boil. 
  • Simmer for 5 minutes.  The sauce should simmer, but not boil vigorously.  If you over-boil, the sauce will become too thick.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the salt and vanilla.  Pour into heat-proof container and let cool.  (The sauce will thicken as it cools).
