ValentiMe's Day!

Yesterday was Valentine's Day. Or as Jake would call it, ValentiMe's day. If you call it Valentime's day, raise your hand! (Okay, sorry, I've been in class for the last 6 hours...)

Anyway...the few days preceding Vday, I got the baking itch and scouted out some delicious goodies.

Here's what went down:

Fudgy Brownie Cupcakes

  • 1 Stick Butter (1/2 C.)
  • 3 Whole Squares Baker's Chocolate
  • 2 C. Sugar
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Whole Eggs
  • 1 C. Flour
  • 2 Tbs. Cocoa Powder
  • 1 C. Chocolate Chips


Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350F.

Melt butter and baking squares in a microwave safe bowl. In the mixing bowl, cream melted butter and chocolate mixture.

Add in sugar and vanilla and beat until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
Add in eggs, beating one at a time.

 Add flour and cocoa powder and stir just until combined.
 Fold in chocolate chips.

Fill a muffin tin with muffin liners and fill each liner about 3/4 of the way full.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until brownie is set. The top will be a bit crunchy and the insides will be fudgy.

Frost if desired with your favorite frosting. I used "That's the best frosting I've ever had" submitted by MissyDew on tasty kitchen.

*Also, make note that if you use a smaller pan you will also need to use a lower baking time. Common sense? Unfortunately not for me that night. I have vowed to make them again...and make them edible this time!
