Brownie Kiss Cupcakes Recipe

Brownie Kiss Cupcakes Recipe

It's fun to prepare individual brownie "cupcakes" with a chocolaty "surprise" inside. My goddaughter, Cara, asks me to make them for her birthday to share at school. This year, she requested 32. I later found out she only needed 27 for her class...wonder where the other five went! -Pamela Lute, Mercersburg, Pennsylvania
