When you have a Mexican-themed potluck tomorrow and you're pressed for time, try my shortcut to Mexican Chocolate brownies. A mini muffin pan makes perfectly-portioned individual desserts.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (19 7/8 ounce) Betty Crocker fudge brownie mix
  • 14 cup water
  • 12 cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 12 teaspoon almond extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 deg. F and grease thoroughly the bottoms and sides of mini muffin pan (do not use paper liners).
  2. Mix ingredients together in medium bowl until well blended.
  3. Bake mini brownies for about 10-13 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center has moist crumbs clinging to it.
  4. Note: If you see wet batter, bake another minute or two; Do not wait for toothpick to come out clean, or brownies will be overcooked and dry.

Delicious - a big hit with our chocolate lovers. We are using it again for Cinco de Mayo. Tasty and easy!

these tasted great.. however, it's worth mentioning that i had a hard time getting them out of the muffin tin (even though i greased it well) so after my first batch, i just put the remaining batter in a rectangular pan and made regular brownies - baking for 28 mins. thanks for the recipe.

I really liked these! We under baked them a bit so that they were more gooey. SOOO good!
