I found this 'brownie pops' recipe and I thought... let's give it a shot, who doesn't like brownies? In the process of making them though, I realized I didn't have enough cocoa powder, so I decided to add a little bit more chocolate flavor by melting two tablespoons of chocolate chips and adding them to the dough. Then I changed the sugar for brown sugar... oh well, I just adapted the recipe...
This is the result...
Are they cute or what? Well, the best part is... they taste like heaven!!!
½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa (or a little bit less)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chocolate chips
For the decor:
3 tablespoons chocolate chips
1 tablespoon butter
Preheat oven to 350˚F.
In a bowl, stir together the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time and keep beating. Melt the 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips in the microwave and once melted let them cool down. Add the melted chocolate to the liquid mixture.
In a separate bowl mix flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add dry mixture to the wet mixture slowly and mixing well.
At this point you'll have a wonderful smelling chocolate mixture, that is gonna look way to liquid to handle with spoons. That's why I used a piping bag to pipe the dough into the mini cupcake cups.
This is how it looked, yes, like doggy poop
Bake the mini-cupcakes for 11 min. They will rise and get to be a spongy, soft, chocolatey cuteness. To decorate them, melt the 3 tablespoons of chocolate with the tablespoon of butter. Spread over the top of each cupcake and sprinkle.
