  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons wasabi paste
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chunks or chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup panko


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Butter and lightly flour an 8" square baking pan.
  • Mix all ingredients except the chocolate chunks and the panko in a medium-sized mixing bowl until fully combined.
  • Fold in chocolate chunks.
  • Pour into prepared baking pan and use a spatula to evenly spread the batter.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and evenly distribute the panko on top of the partially-cooked brownies.
  • Return to the oven and bake for another fifteen minutes or until a toothpick comes out dry.
  • Ideally, you should wait for them to cool prior to cutting (they'll cut more cleanly), but then you'd miss the joy of hot brownies. So, I say, make a mess and eat some right away!
