From Spearville, Kansas, Merrill Powers shares this recipe for individual brownie-like cupcakes studded with pecan pieces. "This crinkly tops of these chewy treats are so pretty that they don't even need frosting," she relates.
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 4 eggs
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and chocolate chips, stirring until smooth. Cool. Add pecans; stir until well-coated. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, flour and vanilla. Fold in chocolate mixture.
- Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 325° for 35-38 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.
