These are the perfect snack for kids. My mom and I frequently make them when we are taking supper to people. They resemble a mix between brownies and cupcakes.

Autumn 2006 PAC: Oh my goodnes these were good. I used them to "treat" my little kids Sunday School class and the adult Sunday School class and they were gobbled down in a hurry. The density is good and the chocolate is great! We will definitely be making these again and again! THANK YOU RACHEL!!
