GOOD TASTE: Super Easy Patriotic Brownie Cups

If you’re planning a Fourth of July gathering, these Patriotic Brownie Cups are super easy, perfectly themed and absolutely yummy. I made these on a whim as a practice and okay, let’s be honest, I had to taste test them. Want to make some? Here’s how:

For the brownie cups, all you need is your favorite brownie recipe or a brownie mix. I used a brownie mix because it’s so fast and easy. Mix up your brownie batter, grease your muffin tin and fill each muffin cup about 2/3 full. I made the mistake of filling each cup only halfway full and you can see how low my cups are. Bake the brownies for about 1/2 of the time you would bake them in a pan. Check your brownies and when they are not quite done, take them out and press the centers with a cup or small round object. I used a spice jar. Once all the centers are pressed down put them back in the oven and bake for 5 more minutes. Let the brownies cool and remove your cups.
