I’ve been meaning to make these since FOREVER and last night I finally picked up the last couple ingredients I needed. This is another recipe from Crepes of Wrath, although I mini-ized it since we all know I’m obsessed with tiny food. The recipe makes 24 mini brownie cupcakes and all the instructions are the same except obviously I used Junior Mints instead of York Peppermint Patties, I used a teaspoon to fill the cups instead of a tablespoon and I only baked them for 15 minutes. They could have probably stayed in for a couple more but I didn’t want to risk burning them because I used up all my butter and baker’s chocolate on this batch, and I ate all the spare mints (AN ENTIRE BOX AND A HALF I’M SO GROSS).
Anyway I’m always nervous when trying new recipes for the first time but with minimal ingredients, these were really easy to make and turned out perfectly. I had asked Sydney (from CoW) if she thought making them with Junior Mints was a good idea, and while she was totally on board, she mentioned that because of the gel-like consistency of the mint filling they might turn “soupy,” but luckily that didn’t happen- I think this was due in part to the ultra-short baking time.
I was worried Sym wouldn’t like them (they aren’t very sweet) but that definitely wasn’t a problem!
