Nickey's Chocolate Brownie Muffins

READY IN: 50mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Insert a mini muffin cup liner in each muffin cup; set aside. [If not using the liners, coat the mini muffin cups well with butter and dust with flour; make sure you coat them well -- this dough tends to stick or use Kittencal's Pan Release #78579.].
  • Melt 8 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan. Add 1/5 of the milk chocolate and whisk until melted. Let cool slightly.
  • In a small bowl, whisk both flours, cocoa powder and salt.
  • In a large bowl, using a handheld mixer, beat the eggs and sugar at medium speed until pale and thick (3-5 minutes). Beat in the vanilla.
  • Beat in the melted chocolate mixture and 1/3 the dry ingredients -- add one third of the flour at a time until it's all incorporated. Then add the remaining chocolate.
  • Spoon batter into muffin cups (about 2/3s - 3/4s full) and bake for about 18-20 minutes -- They will have risen and have a springy feel. A toothpick should come out clean and dry when done. Cool in muffin pan for 15 minutes before turning them out onto wire rack for another 15 minutes.
  • When plating, sprinkle confectioner's sugar on plate, place cookies on plate and top with a generous amount of the sugar on each.
