Variation: To make mint brownie cupcakes, use chocolate-covered mint candy bars. Place two candy bars into the batter. The cupcakes may dip slightly in the middle due to the candy bars. Also, do not crush any candy bars and place them on top. Instead, use vanilla frosting with a little mint flavoring. Place 1 drop of peppermint extract into the frosting and stir to blend in. You can also finely crush peppermint candies and stir into the frosting. Ice the cupcakes with the frosting once they have cooled.

If you only have a 6-cup muffin tin and have to bake these cupcakes in 2 batches, refrigerate the batter until ready to prepare the second batch.


  • 1 (19-21 oz.) box of fudge brownie mix
  • 24 miniature chocolate-covered caramel candy bars with nuts


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. Prepare the brownie mix as directed on the package, but do not bake.

Place one tablespoon of batter into the bottom of each prepared muffin cup. Place a candy bar into the batter in each cup. Fill the cups with remaining batter. Coarsely chop the remaining candy bars and sprinkle evenly over the top of each cupcake.

Bake 22 minutes. Cool the cupcakes on a wire rack. Makes 12 cupcakes.
