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 InstructionsPreheat 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!
