I have such sweets to show you…“Cinna-Bite” Hellraiser Brownies!
What’s your pleasure? Chocolate? Cinnamon? Ah…the cinnamon. The sweet, sweet cinnamon…
Everyone loves biting into a rich, fudgy brownie, but not everyone has dabbled around with adding a little spice into the mix. Step inside The Homicidal Homemaker’s kitchen (if you dare…) and learn how to make these Hellraiser “Cinna-bite” Brownies, decorated to look like the Lament Configuration from the movie. One bite, and you’ll tear these Hellraiser brownies apart!
Disclaimer: The Homicidal Homemaker does not take any responsibility should any Cenobites be summoned from baking a batch of these Hellraiser brownies! 🙂
Hellraiser Cinna-bite Brownies
- 1 C flour
- 2 t ground cinnamon
- 1/2 t baking powder
- 2 C white granulated sugar
- 3/4 C unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 C (2 sticks) butter or margarine
- 4 large eggs

- Lament Configuration Template
- X-acto blade & cutting mat
- Powdered sugar, cocoa powder, or edible spray
- Replace butter/margarine with a plant-based substitute, such as Melt Organics or Earth Balance
- Replace eggs with commercial vegan egg substitute, such as Follow Your Heart VeganEgg, Ener-G Egg replacer, or your favorite homemade egg replacer, such as aquafaba (chickpea brine) or 1/2 cup of blended silken tofu.
What To Do:
Preheat your oven to 350°F.
Line 13×9-inch baking pan with foil, and then lightly spray foil with non-stick cooking spray.
In a bowl, mix together flour, cinnamon, and baking powder. If you are choosing to add additional ‘suffering’ to these brownies, feel free to add in 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper during this time.
In a separate bowl, mix together sugar and cocoa powder. Set aside.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter/margarine. Add to cocoa-sugar mixture, and stir just until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring until blended after each addition. Then add in the vanilla. Gradually stir in the flour mixture until well combined. Then spread into prepared pan.
Bake the brownies for about 30 to 35 minutes, or just until brownie starts to pull away from sides of pan. Allow to fully cool in pan.
Flip the brownies out of the pan, so the bottom is facing up (we’re decorating the bottom surface because it is flat and event). Remove foil, and using your stencil as a guide, cut into squares.
Place your stencil on top of the brownie, and using your decorating method of choice, either sift/shake powdered sugar/cocoa on top, or lightly spray with edible spray paint.
Serve, and enjoy!
