Mint-filled brownie cupcakes

I recently got Martha Stewart's Cupcake book. It is great, and I love that it has a picture of every cupcake! This is one of her recipes:

You need: 8 oz of bittersweet/semisweet coarsely chopped chocolate, 3 eggs, 1/2 c of butter, 1/4 c of unsweetened cocoa, 12 york peppermint patties, 1 C of sugar, and 1/2 C of flour, and 3/4 t of salt. Preheat oven to 350.

First, melt chocolate and butter on the stove with in a glass bowl over simmering water in a pan.

Stir occasionally until melted and smooth

When mixture is smooth add the cup of sugar

and the 3/4 t of salt

And whisk together

Then whisk in the three eggs

Add 1/2 C of flour

1/4 c of cocoa

Mix together just until smooth. DO NOT OVER MIX. I don't know why, that is just what the recipe says. Makes me wonder what would happen if I did over mix! :)

Then place 1 heaping tablespoon of mixture in cupcake liner.

Place the peppermint patty on top and push down into the mixture.

Cover with 2 tablespoons of batter. Bake in the oven at 350 for 35 minutes, rotating the pan 1/2 way through.

YUM!! I liked these and can't wait to try more from her book!
