Wonderful tasty treat for parties!!
This is a "Brownie in a Cupcake Shape". The batter for this is truly a deep dense rich brownie batter and is very thick. I've had them turn out perfect one time and the next time slightly drier. My best results came from using individual silicone cupcake liners in your regular muffin pan instead of paper. I use a size #20 ice cream scoop and fill the silicone liners and then put the kiss in upside down as the recipe states. I then put a dollop of the remaining batter on top of each, to cover the chocolate kiss. I also put water in the remaining and unused molds in your pan, as this helps to preserve the life of your pan and helps these to not dry out. They really are very good :-)
I wonder if I did something wrong.
I saw through the oven window that these cupcakes were rising beautifully and then they sunk in the middle. Is there a reason why this would happen? Does it have to do with process of combining the ingredients? The taste was great but if they don't look round on the top something is lost. Can someone please advice.
This recipe mixed up just as I thought it would. I made two changes: I baked these as brownie "bites" without cupcake papers and I put a Hershey's Mint Truffle Kiss upside down in the center and it was just the right size for the "bite".
They came out deliciously. The brownie base is moist and dense, just like brownies should be and the touch of mint in the center made them perfect as for a holiday party. This is definetely a recipe that will go in my "holiday treats" file.
