Chocolate Chip Brownie cupcakes with a Marshmallow twist!

Usually I am all about the homemade, make everything from scratch, no ifs, ands or buts, BUT I have had this recipe that I have wanted to try for some time now. (I have a huge stack of printed off recipes sitting on my desk at home, and I do plan on trying every one of them :) )

I wanted something fast and easy to make today because I wanted to keep my baking going, have something sweet to eat, and get ALL the other stuff done that I needed to get done today so I figured it was now or never to get this recipe checked off my, uh, one less paper in my stack!

Here we go!! Here is a little sneak peek of what you will need.
(My camera doesn't take very good pictures anyway, but today it seemed like it was having a really bad day so pictures are a bit blurry, so bare with me please!)

I got this very delicious recipe from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen, so I do thank her for this wonderful recipe!

Alright, here is what you will need/do:

Ingredients for the cupcakes:
Brownie batter (you can use homemade or Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge prepared for cake-like brownies)
Regular size tube of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
Directions for cupcakes:
Preheat oven to 350. Line 12 muffin tins with liners.
Slice cookie dough into 12 1/4 inch slices and place one in the bottom of each lined muffin tin.
Spoon brownie batter over the cookie dough, filling cups to about 2/3 full. Bake for about 20 minutes or until brownies are set. Remove from oven and cool on a cooking rack.

Ingredients for frosting:
2 sticks salted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons milk
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons chocolate syrup
7 oz jar marshmallow creme

Directions for frosting:In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter, vanilla, and milk on medium-low speed until smooth and combined.

Add powdered sugar and cocoa powder and beat on low until just combined.
Add chocolate syrup and increase speed to high. Beat for 2 minutes until light and fluffy.Using a spatula, fold in marshmallow creme, just until swirled throughout. You don’t want it to be completely mixed in. Pipe or frost on cookie brownies.
Ohh yeah!


Even though the pictures were not the greatest, I still had a blast making these! (and eating them!)
I hope you do too!
