Gooey, moist and rich brownie cupcakes with chocolate cream cheese frosting are the best for birthday parties!
I am so happy to introduce new cupcakes for you today. Let me tell you something I didn’t actually plan to make brownie cupcakes they just happened by accident. I was working on the chocolate cupcakes and I had everything planned how they will look and what frosting will I choose. During my process of preparing everything from scratch I’ve decide to give brownie cupcakes a chance. I love brownies and I can eat them all the time. Same for my children so I was happy that these cupcakes were very successful.
I’ve got so many cupcake recipes already on the blog and you can simply choose something for your party. I like to make cupcakes without any occasion too. I also prepared an E-book for all my subscribers with my 7 BEST Cupcake Recipes that were shared so many times on Pinterest, Facebook and other social channels. It includes my very popular Matcha Cupcakes with Green Tea Cream Cheese Frosting, Dulce de Leche Cupcakes and many more cupcake recipes!
You can simply download it for yourself!
In the meantime enjoy these very rich in chocolate cupcakes with delicious chocolate cream cheese frosting that it’s so simple to make. The frosting requires only few steps: beat the cream cheese with melted semi-sweet chocolate chips and powdered sugar. Then frost each cupcake with the yummy frosting.
I hope you’ll enjoy my brownie cupcakes and you will make them soon!
