Mini Brownie Cupcakes that melt in your mouth. These bite-sized wonders will have you savoring the sweets while being on-the-go.

Ingredients

  • 21 ounces regular brownies, dry mix
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 large egg whites, lighten beaten
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 36 mini muffin tin holes with mini cupcake wrappers.

In a large mixing bowl, combine brownie mix, water, applesauce, and egg whites. Mix 50 times with a wooden spoon (use 50 strokes); do not under or over mix. Pour brownie mixture into prepared muffin tins, about 1 tablespoon per hole.

Bake cupcakes until a tester inserted in center of a cupake comes out clean, about 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely; remove cupcakes from pan. Before serving, dust with powdered sugar. 

Brownie Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Brownie Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
