Ingredients

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 package (16 oz.) brownie mix

  • ¼ cup cocoa powder

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a muffin tin with paper baking cups.

  • 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.
