Cupcake Brownies


This recipe has been made twice within the last week at our house….for the residents of our house.  With only 50% of us liking chocolate, that is saying something.  This recipe brings the entire family together.  I have another homemade brownie recipe but my handsome fella does not like it.  He loves this one though!  I got the recipe from our Moms4Moms group that meets at our church.  Our Kitchen Queen shared some recipes in February that we could make for our families and I am glad she did!

Cupcake Brownies

Melt in a saucepan over low heat (or in a microwave….but I have only used a saucepan):

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2/3 semi-sweet chocolate chips

Stir as needed to get the above melted and smooth.

Add to the mixture:

  • 1 3/4 cup sugar

Mix Well.

Add to the mixture:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour

Stir until blended and smooth.

Pour into WELL GREASED cupcake tins, filling 3/4 full.

Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until done (I stuck a toothpick in to make sure it came out clean)

When done press into the top of each cupcake:

  • 1 unwrapped Hershey’s Kiss

I make these in my 12 cupcake silicone pan and then also use a 12 cupcake mini-muffin pan.

I haven’t yet mastered the “easy” way to get them out of the mini-muffin pan but the silicone pan, well greased allows me to just push them right out.  The mini-muffin pan I use a knife around the edges and then a spoon to gently scoop it out.

I made these tonight for our Storm Snacks as we prepare for the Frankenstorm of 2012.

Cupcake Brownies to the right….I made a few more small ones this time as they are so fun to just pop into your mouth!
