Brownie cupcake recipe using melted chocolate

Brownie Cupcakes (Using Melted Chocolate) Recipe

The flavor of a brownie in a cupcake pan. It's perfect for those times you need a portable treat or don't have the right size pan but really, REALLY want that brownie flavor (and crackly tops). Use better chocolate for a stronger chocolate flavor. I found this recipe on AllRecipes back on September 25, 2019.

Servings 18 cupcakes


  • Muffin tin


  • 1 Cup Butter
  • 1 (Generous) Cup Semi-Sweet, Dark, or White Chocolate Chips
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


  • 325* oven.
  • Line pan with cupcake liners or grease the pan (I used Baker's Joy).
  • Melt together Butter and Chocolate Chips in saucepan. Stir until smooth.
    Let cool! If you DO NOT let it cool, the mixture will COOK your egg whites and leave a stringy white swirl in your brownies. It should NOT be hot.
  • Combine Eggs, Sugar, and Vanilla. Mix well.
  • Mix in the COOLED Chocolate Mixture.
  • Mix in Flour BUT do not completely mix in the Flour before you add in the Chocolate Chips.
  • Combine ingredients until smooth. Do Not overmix. Once it's smooth—you're done!
  • Fill your cupcake cups half full.
  • Bake 20-30 minutes or until a tester comes out with a few dry crumbs.
  • Remove from pan to cool so your cupcakes don't keep baking and over-bake.
