Mini Mint Brownie Cupcakes

Lots of Mini-Brownies

I’ve been meaning to make these since FOREVER and last night I finally picked up the last couple ingredients I needed. This is another recipe from Crepes of Wrath, although I mini-ized it since we all know I’m obsessed with tiny food. The recipe makes 24 mini brownie cupcakes and all the instructions are the same except obviously I used Junior Mints instead of York Peppermint Patties, I used a teaspoon to fill the cups instead of a tablespoon and I only baked them for 15 minutes. They could have probably stayed in for a couple more but I didn’t want to risk burning them because I used up all my butter and baker’s chocolate on this batch, and I ate all the spare mints (AN ENTIRE BOX AND A HALF I’M SO GROSS).

Mini Brownie Cupcake with Mint

Anyway I’m always nervous when trying new recipes for the first time but with minimal ingredients, these were really easy to make and turned out perfectly. I had asked Sydney (from CoW) if she thought making them with Junior Mints was a good idea, and while she was totally on board, she mentioned that because of the gel-like consistency of the mint filling they might turn “soupy,” but luckily that didn’t happen- I think this was due in part to the ultra-short baking time.

Symphony Likes Brownies

I was worried Sym wouldn’t like them (they aren’t very sweet) but that definitely wasn’t a problem!

  1. :) Good baking Tanie and good eating Sym :)

  2. I want to make these now! My mouth is seriously watering thinking about them.

    • I LOVE THEM BUT THEY ARE SO WEIRD. They’ve been in the fridge overnight and the mint has been ABSORBED by the brownie so there is a hollow in the middle now. Still mint & delicious though!
