Mint Filled Brownie Cupcakes - MSC

I am not sure how many cupcake recipes I've made from Martha Stewart's Cupcake book but I do know I haven't made very many that I thought were real winners. January's recipe, Mint Filled Brownie Cupcakes is the exception. These cupcakes are delicious and I will make again, soon!

The recipe called for bittersweet or semisweet chocolate. I love dark chocolate, so I decided to use that instead. After you make the batter, you scoop one tablespoon into the cupcake pan, put a peppermint patty on top and scoop on more batter. I didn't have peppermint patties but I did have Andes peppermint chips. They worked out as a great substitution. The mint pairs nicely with the chocolate and these are a dense chocolately "cupcake". These are more like a brownie in a cupcake wrapper. Regardless of what you decide to call to call them, give this this recipe a try! It's a keeper!



Thanks to Rebecca of The Baking Sisters for choosing a winner! You can find the recipe on Martha's website and links to all of the MSC bakers here!

  1. Hi Julie! So glad you like these! The club baked the Chocolate Salted Caramel cupcakes in November of 2009 (Before my time!) Do you have another choice? Look under the recipes tab for selections. I'll wait to hear from you!

    Thanks!

  6. I had some Andes Mints! (leftover from my sisters visit to America) I should have totally used those rather than the flop I had with the English equivalents of peppermint patties! I love your perfect crackly tops on your cupcakes - they look so tempting!
