Brownie Batter Cupcakes

Brownie Batter Cupcakes | A cupcake that has a brownie muffin top and decadent dark chocolate frosting #dessert

One of my favorite things in the whole wide world is to make someone a treat that I know they'll love. One of our good friends had a birthday and he loves brownies. Usually he gets a brownie for his birthday "cake", but this year, I wanted to try and combine the two. This was the perfect dessert for that. The brownie is baked into the cupcake and makes a muffin top, but with brownie. *drool* And the frosting is to die for!

What you need:
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 box Devil's Food cake mix

  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tsp. vanilla

    scoop and dollop 36 brownies onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze overnight.

    chocolate chips. Place 3 Tbsp. of batter per cup in a lined muffin/cupcake pan.
  3. Take brownies out of freezer and gently press one brownie into the center of each cup of batter.
  4. Bake in a preheated 325* oven for 22 to 28 minutes. Let cool completely before frosting.

  6. Mix together butter, sugar, cocoa, and salt until smooth. Then add syrup and vanilla, just until
  7. Last, add melted chocolate and mix until smooth and creamy, but don't overwhip!
