Serve these Ultra Gooey Peppermint Brownie Cupcakes straight from the oven and delight the guests at your next dinner party.
(Shh don’t tell them these are from a box and are vegan!)
It has been said that the fastest way to win a girl’s heart is through peppermint and chocolate.
(Or maybe it was I that said that.)
Think molten lava cake.
Gooey. Oozing with warm chocolate-y goodness and a hint of peppermint for Christmas cheer.
Be warned however; these should be eaten while warm. Once they cool overnight the magic “molteniness” will be gone.
Did I mention how simple this recipe is? The reason is that there is no mixing of flour and sugar etc. is because it is all in the box!
But wait! Before I lose you, this isn’t your average box o’ brownie mix with genetically modified ingredients, hydrogenated oils and cocoa processed with alkali….
See the difference for yourself!
