Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes

 

My obsession with brownie is long standing! I have a long list of brownies that I want to make!! If I had enough time and people who I could feed all my experiments I would have made it all by now..But I am practicing patience..Also the new job that I am taking up will not give me as much time to experiment..So I am training myself to be a little patient!

I came across this recipe..From somewhere..Had pasted it in my drafts long time back hence I have no idea where exactly I got it from..anyways as usual I made my changes…more chocolate than was called for(which i think made a lot of difference!!)…and lesser sugar..:D..thats me!:D

Also I didn’t have any peacons..so I thought I will put hazelnut! I was using hazelnut for the first time so I didn’t know if I had to toast them or what..I just whacked the hell out of those babies with the Indian housewife weapon..yeah..the belan..or the rolling pin..cause I couldn be bothered with cutting each one of them separately..though I did try it..but I guess I just got frustrated after the first nut and hence the whacking!:D

Anyhow like all brownies this one gets hard only after sufficient cooling so don’t be dissapointed if it is soft like a muffin than hard like a brownie initially..Just cool it and stick it in the refrigerator for a few hours and your brownie cupcakes are ready to devour!!I would suggest you warm it a bit..top it with ice cream and hot chocolate sauce and then serve!:D
