I have a freakish obsession with chocolate. No really, I do. Any and EVERY chocolate recipe I see online automatically goes under my "must-try" pile..including these brownie candy cups I saw on Bakerella's site. With today being the Superbowl, I decided to take the advantage of the occasion and try out these chocolatey treats.
I googled these candy cups to check their reviews and what not, and I ended up stumbling upon the original recipe on the Duncan Hines website. I ended up using this recipe...which didnt say which baking cups to use, or how big they were supposed to be, so I just went ahead and used Reynold's 2 and a half inch foil baking cups.
Needless to say, these were a hit! They were also very filling, so I wouldn't take more than two if I were you. P.S. These may complicate weight loss...just a tad.
