Well guys, it Wednesday again. I hope everyone is starting to get some warmer weather. We haven’t seen it yet, but it will come. The weather around here has been very, very strange lately.
Something fresh from the oven sounded good for dessert tonight. As I’ve explained to all of you before, IF we have dessert on Wednesday, we usually do something easy. And tonight that’s exactly what we’re doing.
Why do SUPER EASY desserts on Wednesdays? Because the weeks get busy with kids in the house. The school year is so busy with concerts, conferences, meetings, sports and so much more, and summer (our whole three months) is full of everything we can fit into three months of warm weather. If we’re lucky we get more, but don’t count on it!
So let’s get started…
FROSTED BROWNIE CUPCAKES
You Will Need: Two regular size muffin pans, cupcake liners, and nonstick baking spray
1 box Fudge Brownie mix (13 x 9 Family Size)
Water, Oil, and Egg called for on back of package
1 container Butter cream frosting
ONE garnish of your choice – mini chocolate chips, mini M&M’s, sprinkles, or any garnish you prefer
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, or temperature called for on back of brownie box. Line muffin tins with paper liners, spray lightly with nonstick spray.
2. In a large bowl, mix brownie mix, water, oil, and eggs until well blended. Do not over stir.
3. Fill the lined muffin tins about 2/3 full. You will have approximately 20-24 filled muffin cups. Bake in the prepared muffin tins according to package instructions. Place a small amount of water in the empty muffin tins. Allow to cool completely before frosting and decorating with garnish.
MAKES 20-24 SERVINGS
MM TIP: Make this easy on yourself and pick just one garnish for these brownies. We all love brownies loaded with all of the goodies, but by the time you get frosting on the brownies and top them off with a few chocolate chips, M&M’s, or sprinkles, everyone will be happy.
Please keep the people of Boston in your hearts and in your prayers tonight! Boston we love you and we’re thinking of you!!
