Mini Oreo Brownie Cupcakes

Once again I was inspired by a recipe on JAP. This time it was Debbie Wright's "Death By Oreo Cupcakes". Debbie made her dessert with chocolate cake mix. I am a brownie devotee and thought I'd try something similar using chewy brownies scaled down to a "mini bite". These are a brownie lover's dream and I hope you'll try them.

2Prepare brownie mix using 2 large eggs instead of the 1 egg the mix recommends. And if you have leftover brewed coffee around, use that instead of the water that's recommended. Add canola oil. Mix and add the cup of chopped/chunked oreos. Stir until combined. Spoon carefully by teaspoonfuls into the cupcake tins. Don't over fill.
