Serves: 24


  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1⁄2 cup butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 package (16 oz.) brownie mix
  • 2 Tbsp. chocolate milk
  • 2 Tbsp. confectioners’ sugar
  • 1⁄4 cup cocoa powder


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a muffin tin with paper baking cups.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and butter.
  • Microwave on high for 60 seconds, stirring halfway through. Set aside to cool for at least 5 minutes.
  • In a larger mixing bowl, combine eggs and yolks; use an electric mixer to beat on high speed for 5 minutes. The eggs should look foamy and double in volume.
  • Fold dry brownie mix, chocolate milk, and microwaved chocolate mixture into the egg mixture using a wooden spoon. Pour even amounts into the baking cups.
  • Bake for 13 minutes. The centers of the cake should be soft, but the edges should be set. Sprinkle cupcakes with confectioners’ sugar and cocoa powder.
