A surprise candy-bar center awaits those who bite into these fudgy delights. Based on a box of brownie mix, they're super-easy to bake.


  • 1 21 - ounce package fudge brownie mix
  • 15 miniature-size chocolate-coated caramel-topped nougat bars with peanuts, or 15 dark-chocolate-coated mint creams
  • Canned vanilla frosting (optional)
  • Small decorative candies or sprinkles (optional)


  1. Line fifteen 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with paper bake cups. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions. Spoon 1 tablespoon of batter into each bake cup. Place a miniature-size candy bar or mint cream in each cup. Divide the remaining batter among the cups.
  2. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven 22 minutes. Let cool in pans on a wire rack (cupcakes may dip in centers). Spread each with frosting and sprinkle with decorative candies, if you like. Makes 15 cupcakes.


  • If all cupcakes don't fit in oven at once, refrigerate unbaked extras till the first ones bake.
