Kelsey's notes for this recipe:
I love making homemade brownies. I started off baking them from boxed mix but recently decided to learn to make brownies from scratch. I found a really easy recipe in an old cook book and after making the brownies a few times, I started experimenting with different ingredients and substitutions.

The following recipe is my final product and if I do say so myself, these brownies are delicious. They are chocolaty and moist.

I enjoy making everything in individual cupcakes, but you could easily make these in a pan. Just adjust the cooking time a bit and make sure to watch them closely. When baking brownies, I take them out of the oven a little bit before they are done because they will continue cooking while they cool off. This way they are never hard and over-done.

Directions

1
Pre-heat oven to 325 F
Place cupcake liners in pan
2
In a medium sized mixing bowl, melt butter and cocoa powder in microwave. Mix well.
(This takes about a minutes in my microwave)
3
Stir in sugar, salt, vanilla, flour and then each egg, one at a time.
4
Throw in a hand-full of semi-sweet chocolate chips, fold in to batter.
5
Fill up each cupcake liner about half way.
6
Bake at 325 F for about 30 minutes. Time differs depending on the oven. At around 20 minutes, pull pan out and stick a fork in the middle brownie cupcake to check the batter. If the fort comes out with just a little batter on it, go ahead and take out of the oven. If not, leave them in longer and check every few minutes or so.
7
Once brownie cupcakes are done, take them out of pan and place on cooling rack. While cooling, sift a layer of confectioners' sugar on top.
8
Enjoy with your family and friends.

Have some in the oven right now! Love them... I don't feel as though I am eating a "big hunk" of brownie. This seems more petite!!
