  2. Melt butter and chocolate chips together in a saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth; let cool.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean or with moist crumbs, about 30 minutes.

Made this for the Faceless Frenzy weekend 2013. I loved the idea of making brownies in a cupcake liner since the plan is to freeze most of them! I used milk chocolate chips and a small handfull of mini semi-sweet chips. Even though I cut the recipe in half it yielded 12 cupcakes that were great. Another plus is you'll nearly always have the ingredients on hand.

I LOVED this recipe! I also made it dairy free by using 1 cup of vegetable oil instead of butter and dairy free chocolate chips. The recipe came out great!

Can't beat the rich flavor butter gives baked goods, this recipe's best feature in my view. They're light and milk chocolaty, which Hubs loved but I found a little wimpy in chocolate intensity, and I did boost the flavor with a pinch of salt. Otherwise, nicely shaped, with rounded tops. Great as is, perfection (in Hubs' opinion) with the buttercream frosting I dressed them up with. (I gave the frosting a bit of almond flavor, but mint would be awesome good too!)

These brownies had a really good flavor, but were too cakey for my liking. I guess I was hoping for something a little more dense and fudgy. I found that adding a big pinch of salt (maybe 1/8 tsp) to the batter rounded out the flavor nicely. Also, this recipe yielded 24 cupcakes for me. All in all it's a good recipe--quick and tasty but if you're wanting a dense, chewy brownie this isn't it.

These turned out pretty good. I did up the amount of chocolate chips I melted to 1 1/2 cups and also added about 1/4 cup of cocoa powder. I also added some chocolate chips into the batter right before baking. Because of the added chips I cut the sugar in half. Turned out not super sweet but still good and my kids love them.

These were superb! I made them for the fourth of July and they came out light, moist, and incredibly tasty!

They were pretty dry and crumbly- even for a brownie. I tried frosting them but it tore up the top of the brownies. There wasn't much chocolate flavor even when I added a bit more chocolate chips than called for. I won't make this again.
