Cupcake Wars Blog Hop!

now if I knew how to do a link for this to go right to my blog, I"d be all set... LOL

Welcome to Cupcake Wars! No bloodshed here, just plenty of sugar! If you didn't start at Janet's blog: please do so! She's giving away a Cricut Lite Cartridge-Cupcake! How sweet is that?
We don't want you to miss any of the scrumptious projects and some have even left recipes f...
or you to try! As we head into the holiday season, you might just have a new family favorite!

You should have come from: Ashley - I'm so glad you're here now, so check out my project and what I cooked up for you!

We love brownies at our house so I decided that I wanted to make mini brownie "cupcakes"
here is the picture of the indredients:

This is something that is "homemade" with ingredients you might have on hand.  I used a brownie mix following the directions on it.  I also use my secret ingredient " 2 Tablespoons of Hershey's syrup (or any store brand chocolate syrup) added to the brownie mix.
Next I grease the mini cupcake tin and fill them about 3/4 full.  Bake them at 325 for about 7 minutes, check them and then about 3-5 more minutes depending on how fast your oven cooks.
I cool them on a rack with waxed paper:
After they cool I use a piping bag with a tip (if you don't have this you can use a ziplock bagie and cut the corner off)  swirl on the frosting and add my sprinkles.
My kids LOVE these!!
Here is a picture of a cupcake card I made that would be great to giveaway with these yummy brownie bites!

From here you should head over to Pam -
If you get lost, head back to Janet's, Janet-

Thanks for stopping by! Now on to more yummy ideas!

Here is the complete line up in case you get lost :)
