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