If you like chocolate brownies and chocolate cupcakes, then you will love my recipe for Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes. It’s a rich, chocolate-y, fudge-y brownie with the airiness and shape of a cupcake. Let me also say that these are JUMBO! They are big, although that may have been an accident! I over-filled the cupcake molds a bit, so as they baked and expanded, they grew to enormous proportions! But I’m not complaining…
They’re really a wonderful dessert for parties or special occasions, because the chocolate syrup and sprinkles make them look (and taste) super festive! I hope you try them yourself, and love them as much as I do. This recipe is now on my short-list of Great Chocolate Desserts.
Another plus of these lil babies is that they are semi-homemade. That means I didn’t make them from scratch… (gasp!) Instead, I start with store-bought cake and brownie mixes. That makes life a lot simpler, when you’re cooking with two little “helpers” at your feet. And when I say “helpers,” I really mean “two little kids that want to stir the mix and then throw the mix all over the kitchen!”
Let’s get to the recipe now, shall we?
