Reviews for Brownie Cupcakes

Can the pecans be substituted by almonds?Because my little sister is allergic to pecans and walnuts.
This is a fun novelty dessert. The brownie cupcakes are tasty, but a little more basic than other brownie recipes I've tried. I also used Ghirardelli semi-sweet chips, which melted smoothly with the butter. I baked the brownie cupcakes at 350 degree opposed to 325 degrees. They cooked quickly and had a nice texture to them.
I always triple this recipe to make a dozen. I also recommend using good quality chocolate chips- I like to use Ghirardelli semi sweet chocolate chips. I have used toasted pecans or walnuts-so good! The last time I added 1/2 cup toasted coconut-even better!!!!! These freeze well-if you don't eat them all first. Also pretty with a small amount of chocolate frosting piped in the middle of each and some white sprinkles to top it off!
Quick, simple, tasty. I replaced the pecans with almonds and it worked great. I love that you don't need any icing to make it work, just the basics.
