Has anyone tried these with some chili powder or cayenne and if so how much would you use?

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?

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!"
