I created this recipe because my sister-in-law really enjoys hazelnuts and is always asking me to bake with them. A plate of these rich, chocolaty bites makes a great gift, too. —Laura Majchrzak, Hunt Valley, Maryland
Often, I'll find a recipe that sounds interesting, copy it down and put my own twist on it. That's just what I did with these Brownie Ice Cream Cones. I make them for our children when they have friends over. —Marlene Rhodes, Panama City, Florida
I used to make these brownie bites with a cherry in the center. Then I discovered that my granddaughter Lily is big on peanut butter, so I switched it up. Now she loves to help me make them. —Donna McGinnis, Taylor Ridge, Illinois
“I grew up in my parents’ bakery, which might explain why I don’t like frosting,” says Cindy Lang of Hays, Kansas. “These cupcakes are just my style! They come out shiny on top and are great without frosting.”
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!
