Brownie Cups

I made these for my son yesterday because he hasn't been feeling well this week. They are his favorites. When I volunteer to bring something yummy to his classroom at school, I bring these instead of cupcakes. Everyone loves them. I can't take credit for them, Janine DiGiovanni shared the recipe with me. Thanks, Janine! If you get a sweet tooth this weekend, try whipping up some brownie cups!
Have a great weekend!

  1. I love this recipe, one of my March hosts made them and tinted the icing green for St. Patrick's Day! Fresh Strawberries are also great on top! See me if you need any Pampered Chef Products. Jule Burton
