    Delicious and easy enough for the kids to help!
    First I'll just say that I'm a new baker, so beginners (as the site says) can definitely do this one. Secondly, they're great! I made them with Special Dark Cocoa and I really wish I had made two batches. The most important things I would say to remember about this recipe are that they are definitely brownie cups (not to be confused with cupcakes or muffins; these are far denser), and that the recipe makes the PERFECT amount of batter. Any more and you may have them bake too high; any less and they'll probably not reach the top of the muffin insert thing.
