These decadent looking Milky Way Brownie Cups are a great way to end dinner. The best part...they only use 4 ingredients.
My sister and her family are coming in a few days and I decided that the our big bathroom needed to finally be redone...with less than a week to do it.
It is the last room in the house with wallpaper from when we moved in.
The wallpaper look had run its course with me.
Can I just tell you that I think wallpaper paste is evil, evil stuff?
Now I'm sure if I had listened to everyone on Facebook and had tried the Downy method, it might have come off easier.
But there was only a little bit left in the laundry room and I saved it for you know, clothes.
My husband has been too busy this week to really help out, so he told me I was kind of on my own on this project. I am feeling kind of like Amy Wynn
(anyone remember her from Trading Spaces?)
So far I have stripped wallpaper, mudded and sanded the holes, and primed the walls, and painted trim and the sink cabinet.
Now I just need to break out the power tools and cut some bead board. I will probably need some help there. Cutting out outlet holes could be a problem for this tool challenged girl.
I might be regretting my hasty bathroom project.
It is Friday, and my family is coming Monday.
Oh yeah, and I have grocery shopping to do today and cleaning up for a dinner we are having tonight.
Maybe I should have just stuck to the brownies and caramel thing...that only ends in a sink full of dishes.
And dishes are sure a lot easier to do than putting a bathroom back together.
I have a feeling that a lot of chocolate is going to be needed this weekend to get me through with minimal crabbiness.
These little Milky Way Brownie Cups filled with caramel and nougat topping just might do the trick!!!
Have you ever started a big project and then regretted it???
These do look/sound great! Want to make these for 4-6 people but wanted to make in a regular size muffin tin (12). Could u tell me how long to bake or just keep checking?
These are really rich even as a small tiny bite, so I'm not sure you would want to make them into a larger size. Here is another brownie cup that I did with the regular sized muffin tin. That will give you the baking time needed if you still want to try them as larger ones. https://insidebrucrewlife.com/salted-caramel-mocha-brownie-cups/
Looks tasty! I have to try this for the next time we have company.
My girls and I made these today and they are amazing!! Thank you
I am so happy you and your girls made and liked these! Thank you for stopping back and sharing with me.
These look delicious! Thank you for sharing!
Why you don't cook by yourself? You use ready-made products that you mix with each other. This is not cooking.
I do lots of baking and cooking from scratch, but sometimes a quick treat made with box mixes is fun and easy to do.
Why don't you share a link to your fully made from scratch blog? Probably because it doesn't exist.
Thanks for the comment Lisa...and the laugh!🤣
That’s a very rude comment, if your not in favor of her recipes look elsewhere.
Lisa, do these kinds of comments make you feel better. This is more a reflection on you than it is Jocelyn.
I made these for the students of our small school and they were the biggest hit! I have to admit I grabbed one ( Or 2, maybe 3), the caramel and the easy mousse topping just make these so heavenly! Thanks for posting, now to try some more goodies
DO you really only use 1 teaspoon?
Yes, I used a teaspoon to scoop the batter out. I didn't actually measure it out, so it was a large teaspoonful. But you are using a mini pan, so they don't take a lot of batter.
My frosting was too hard/thick to pipe! Any idea why? I used regular cool whip. I attempted to salvage some of the frosting and spread it on, but they looked disastrous. Taste was great though!
Did you add the warm chocolate to the Cool Whip and beat it right away? It should create a fluffy but firm mousse that is easy to pipe.
This recipe was a big hit at the christmas eve get together with my family. My first batch was a flop. I could not get the bownies out of the tins. But, even with my hubby telling me I am useless when it comes to making anything having to do with brownies, I was ready to prove him wrong. And I am glad I did. Besides some of the caramel oozing out, they came out perfect. Can't wait for another gathering so I can try another recipe. Glad I found your site. Thank you. Yummmm.
Pop up ads are hiding the recipe and I cannot make them go away.
Thank you for letting me know. I will send a message to my ad providers, and see if they can look into the issue.
I can't see the ingredients list because ads pop up over the top and don't have a way to get rid of them. The ads on here are really annoying!
What device are you using to view the recipe? All the mobile ads have a small "x" in the corner to close them out. I'm sorry that the ads are annoying to you, but I do help support my family with them.
Oh my, these milky way brownies look wonderful.....do you eat anything you bake ? or just bake it and give it away ? 🙂 you should be fat with all those goodies you make.....
Oh my gosh! I was forced to make a slightly modified recipe as my frosting didnt turn out--but even so, these were amazing! They were gone within seconds of me putting them out at work. =]
I have to ask though--did you bring your cool whip to room temperature or anything prior to mixing in with the melted chocolate? I had an issue where as soon as I mixed the two, the chocolate hardened and I had clumpy chocolate coated in cool whip....Luckily I had bought extra cool whip, so I ended up just mising some cocoa powder in, but I am sure it wasn't the same texture. Any ideas of what I did wrong?
I'm glad to hear you were able to make the topping work with some fixing. I had to mix the melted chocolate and Cool Whip instantly to get it to make a frosting. It does work as long as you get the mixer beating right away! The texture resembles a soft truffle!!!
These look so good! However, I too was unsuccessful!! Trying to get them out of the pan was a HUGE disaster! They all crumbled and fell apart and we're not presentable in the least! I thought I did something wrong and made the mistake of making them again, for yet another disappointment!! Not only have I wasted 2 brownie mixes, but 21/2 hours of my time! With brownie crumbs, bits and pieces all over my kitchen...I still have to try and come up with a dessert for my party tomorrow...
I am so sorry to hear the brownies did not work for you. I have made brownie bites in muffin tins so many times without that problem. Did you use a non stick baking spray? PAM makes a baking one that works great. Also, how long did you bake them and leave them in the tins before removing them? Dessert for tomorrow...use the brownie crumbs and layer it with pudding and Cool Whip and make a trifle 🙂
Waaaah. Something went wrong? My brownies were perfect and I got to use my pampered chef tart shaper :). However the chocolate mousse topping was a fail. I melted 2 cups of Hershey's chocolate chips over a double broiler. I whipped it with my cuisinart and added 1 tub of fat free cool whip. As the chocolate cooled it got hard and most of it was left in the bowl. What I did pipe into the brownies just oozed flat with no chocolate icing look like yours in the picture. They taste great, but the look is not so great....ideas??
Oh, no! I am so sorry to hear this. My first guess is that it is from the fat free Cool Whip. I always use regular for anything I make. The mixture should have been stiff enough to pipe through a decorator's bag after you whipped in the Cool Whip. I'm glad they still taste good. Maybe swirl a little bit of Cool Whip on top of them and add some sprinkles to make them look better!
It is just 1 teaspoon in the tart cups??? I thought maybe a Tablespoon??? Just want to make sure. Thanks.
Yes, it is just one teaspoon of batter if you are using the mini muffin tins. Enjoy the brownie bites 🙂
I agree! There is no way 1 measured tsp is enough
I did use a teaspoon to spoon these into the muffin tins. It probably wasn't completely leveled out, so maybe it was more like a heaping teaspoon.
They make chocolate flavored Cool whip now. Im thinking a Rollo candy in the middle, then pipe chocolate cool whip on top. Easy peazy
That's an awesome modification for these bites. Totally easy and delicious...I love it!
