Decadent Brownie Cupcake

What happens when you cross a brownie and a cupcake? This amazingly moist and decadent dessert.

I have had this recipe for years, and have tweeked it enough I can comfortably call it my own.

When you peruse the ingredient list – it is a show stopper, but definitely worth having one…or two…

These are great for summertime as no frosting is needed, they are perfect just as they are.  ENJOY!

2 cups granulated sugar

8 egg yolks
