I made these for an picnic because they would be easy to transport and serve since they don't require frosting. But the picture looked rather plain so I decided to dress then upa little. Since it was Easter I bought a tube of chocolate Betty Crocker cookie frosting (the kind that hardens) and smeared just a litle bit on top, just enough to attach some tiny sugar carrot decorations I bought at a local cake decorating supply store. They were a hit at our family gathering. Two suggestions: 1. Be careful not to overbake. I pulled my first batch out right at the buzzer and they were a bit dry for my tastes. I checked the second batch a couple of minutes sooner and they were done already. Like regular brownies these will be very dry if overbaked. 2. I used pecans this time but will probably use walnuts next time. I couldn't really taste the pecans, and walnuts are much cheaper and abundant here in CA.

The batter was really sticky and it was extremely hard to scoop into the muffin tins. It made a HUGE mess! The brownies don't taste that great either. If I was going to make them again I would put them in a 9x13 pan, but if I'm going to go to trouble to make brownies I might as well just use a recipe that tastes good.

These brownie cups were wonderful as is!...but dress them up with milk chocolate and peanut butter chips were good too. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce for chocolate lovers!
