It's a Chocolate Kind of a Day!


You know the day?
The day you wake up and even though there is nothing
pressing that needs done but...
you just know that some sort of chocolate
just has to be included in your day!

(I have these days WAY too often:-)

These brownies are full of chocolate
and are the perfect pick me up in the afternoon.
The jolt of sugar running through your bloodstream
will give you the energy you need to get dinner made.

If not, just serve brownies for dinner.
I don't think your kids will mind:-)


Brownie Cupcakes with Coconut Butter Cream

1 brownie mix
1 c. chocolate chips
1/2 c. chocolate chips melted with 1 tsp. butter
hot fudge topping
toasted coconut

Preheat oven to 350* Fill your cupcake pan with cute liners and set aside. Mix up the brownie mix according to the 3 egg directions. Stir in the 1 c. chocolate chips. Fill liners 3/4 full and bake 20-22 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Scoop out a small portion of the middle and fill with the hot fudge topping. Frost with coconut butter cream. Drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with toasted coconut.

Coconut Butter Cream

1 c. butter
1/8 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tbsp. water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. coconut extract
4 c. powdered sugar
1 c. shredded coconut

Beat butter until creamy. Add the salt, water, and extract and cream again. Slowly add the powdered sugar until all is incorporated. Stir in the shredded coconut. If you are going to use a piping bag to frost your cupcakes, use a very large tip, so the coconut doesn't get stuck in the tip:-)

Happy Thursday!!!
