A question about a recipe: Alice Medrich's Best Cocoa Brownies

I have a question about the recipe "Alice Medrich's Best Cocoa Brownies" from Genius Recipes. Has anyone tried these with some chili powder or cayenne and if so how much would you use?

Just in case anyone else was curious about this, I wanted to share that Jillian Bernardini weighed in on this question over in the recipe comments and said: "When I used about a teaspoon and a half for Dorie Greenspan's cocoa shortbread cookies, I could taste the aftermath of the heat. in a good way though!"

I like to add chipotle powder and cinnamon to brownies. For this recipe, maybe 1/2-3/4 tsp chipotle and 1/4-1/2 tsp cinnamon?
