Enjoy the best of both worlds with this delectable brownie cupcake! Never cook any brownie until the tester comes out clean, or they will be dry- the tester should still be moist or even have a few crumbs clinging to it.

Chef's Tips

Cream Cheese Pecan Brownie Cupcakes variation: Omit rainbow sprinkles. Coarsely chop all but nine pecans in one pkg (100 g) no name Pecan Halves. Stir chopped pecans in with brownie mix. Top each cupcake with a pecan half after icing cupcakes.
