Chocolate Chip Brownie Cupcakes with Chocolate Marshmallow Frosting
It was a crazy week last week at the Jiggle household. Why? Heck if I know but I feel like I just ran around and accomplished nothing. I even had a day off in there but still didn't manage to cook anything. So, I decided to take advantage of being by myself tonight and bake some cupcakes. Yum.
I have a sister in law that brings brownies with chocolate chip cookie dough baked in them to family functions and they are delicious. And, if you use a brownie mix and premade chocolate chip cookie dough they are easy too. I saw this combination in cupcake form on Confessions of a Cookbook Queen about a week ago and was completely entranced by the frosting. Like "I really wanted to just make the frosting but I couldn't justify it to myself without the cupcakes" entranced. I'm not even a really marshmallow fan but this frosting looked like it was out of this world. It was. I licked the bowl after frosting the cupcakes until I was slightly sick but I still wanted more. It was that good.
Chocolate Chip Brownie Cupcakes
adapted from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen
1 box brownie mix prepared for cake like brownies
1 tube of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
Preheat the oven to 350. Line 21 muffin tins with cupcake liners
Slice cookie dough into slices and smoosh into the bottom of the muffin tins. You'll probably have some dough left over...just eat it. You know you want to.
Spoon approx 1/4 c. brownie batter over the cookie dough. Fill the cups about 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.
Chocolate Marshmallow Frosting
2 sticks butter, room temp
1 tsp vanilla
2 T. milk
3 c. powdered sugar
1/4 powdered cocoa
3 T. chocolate syrup
7 oz jar marshmallow fluff
In a mixing bowl whip the butter, vanilla and milk together until fluffy. Add powdered sugar and cocoa, mix until combined. Add chocolate syrup and increase mixer speed to high. Beat for 2 minutes until light and fluffy.
Using a wooden spoon fold in marshmallow fluff, just until swirled through the frosting. Don't mix it in completely. Pipe or frost cupcakes.
