A delightfully easy way to make delicious chocolate brownies without the mess! These can be frosted, if desired, but we like them just the way they are!
1 cup butter, cubed
4 ounces (4 squares) semisweet chocolate
1-3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1. Melt butter and chocolate in a small microwaveable bowl on High; stir until smooth.
2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until blended. Beat in vanilla and the chocolate mixture.
3. Gradually stir in the flour until blended; stir in the nuts.
4. Fill greased or paper lined muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean; cool. Makes 18 cupcake brownies.
