Made this for the Faceless Frenzy weekend 2013. I loved the idea of making brownies in a cupcake liner since the plan is to freeze most of them! I used milk chocolate chips and a small handfull of mini semi-sweet chips. Even though I cut the recipe in half it yielded 12 cupcakes that were great. Another plus is you'll nearly always have the ingredients on hand. Read More

I LOVED this recipe! I also made it dairy free by using 1 cup of vegetable oil instead of butter and dairy free chocolate chips. The recipe came out great! Read More

These turned out pretty good. I did up the amount of chocolate chips I melted to 1 1/2 cups and also added about 1/4 cup of cocoa powder. I also added some chocolate chips into the batter right before baking. Because of the added chips I cut the sugar in half. Turned out not super sweet but still good and my kids love them. Read More

Can't beat the rich flavor butter gives baked goods, this recipe's best feature in my view. They're light and milk chocolaty, which Hubs loved but I found a little wimpy in chocolate intensity, and I did boost the flavor with a pinch of salt. Otherwise, nicely shaped, with rounded tops. Great as is, perfection (in Hubs' opinion) with the buttercream frosting I dressed them up with. (I gave the frosting a bit of almond flavor, but mint would be awesome good too!) Read More

These brownies had a really good flavor but were too cakey for my liking. I guess I was hoping for something a little more dense and fudgy. I found that adding a big pinch of salt (maybe 1/8 tsp) to the batter rounded out the flavor nicely. Also this recipe yielded 24 cupcakes for me. All in all it's a good recipe--quick and tasty but if you're wanting a dense chewy brownie this isn't it. Read More

These were pretty nice and I didn't really know what to expect - it was sort of a random recipe pick. I made it exactly as written with the butter being unsalted and the chocolate chips being semi-sweet. They turned out to be just like the title brownies in a cupcake form. For brownies they were a little on the basic side though so I won't give this a full 5-stars but I managed to eat all 18 cupcakes in about 8 days and I liked them all. I'm thinking that maybe I should make these again share them and see what my friends think. Read More

Simple and delicious. Made them for my son's preschool birthday snack. Dusted the tops with some 10X sugar. I actually made them two times-- the first time I baked them at the wrong temperature and they turned into hockey pucks! Read More
