Jungle Animal Cuppies

"Jungle Animal Cuppies"
Chocolate Chip Brownie Cups w/ Chocolate Frosting
slightly adapted from Hershey's Kitchens 

  • 1 c butter
  • 2 c sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • eggs
  • 3/4 c HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 1-3/4 c a-p flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line 18 muffin cups with paper bake cups. OK, somehow, MINE yielded 24 cupcakes! Go me! LOL- more to go around ;)
  2. Place butter in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 to 1-/2 min.s or until melted. Stir in sugar & vanilla. Add eggs; beat well. Add cocoa; beat until well blended. Add flour, baking powder & salt; beat well. Stir in 1-1/3 c chocolate chips. Divide batter evenly into muffin cups (I used a scoop). 
  3. Bake 25 to 30 min.s or until surface is firm; remove from oven. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. 

Decorate! I had so much fun with these... I thought, hmmm... how can I make easy, FUN, celebratory cupcakes for 3 year olds?! Well, here you go. Each child gets a cupcake & animal crackers. Cannot beat that. I hope Gabriel & his friends have a great party at school!!!! <3 Mama Lishie
Frosting is Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Frosting. Sprinkle on green "Jimmies" for the grass, then place 2 animal crackers on. Yep, that easy. But the fun is immense! And yep, my son knows he is cute (exhibit A:)
