I have a huge confession to make today. Believe me, my head is hung in complete shame! I just did something that always bugs me when I see it in the store!
I was driving the kids to school this morning, and I remembered that I had to stop at Walmart afterwards. Now this is not normally a problem. EXCEPT that I get up in just enough time to throw on a hat and head out the door.
Yup you guess it. I drop my kids off while wearing my pajamas! It is the only place that I will actually go out while wearing them. My logic is that no one actually sees them because I don't get out of my van.
I really thought long and hard about why I needed to stop. Unfortunately, it was a stop that had to be made right then. It couldn't wait until later.
Why oh why did I wear the green and blue plaid pj's? This would not have been so bad if I had on the black sweats I normally wear.
I pulled my hat down really low and ran in. This was probably the only time in history that I have been in and out of Wally World in UNDER 10 minutes.
Thank goodness I didn't run into anyone that I know. There is one girl that works there that I do know, and yes, she was working. BUT, I was able to sneak past. I even walked the long way back to my car just to avoid any kind of eye contact.
Let's all think happy thoughts right now. I am blocking this trip from my memory by focusing on eating spoonfuls of the extra Salted Caramel Frosting in my fridge.
Better yet how about some Salted Caramel Mocha Brownie Cups? Caramel, coffee, chocolate, and sea salt all in one glorious bit sounds good, doesn't it?
Yup, I'm definitely in a much happier place now. One bite from these and all will be made right in your world. Even if you did just run into Walmart with your pj's on.
Tips for making these Salted Caramel Mocha Brownie Cups:
Use a box brownie mix and jazz it up with some instant coffee. You will not taste the coffee at all. Coffee just enhances the chocolate flavor even more.
Spoon the brownie batter into cupcake liners and bake. Remove the pan from the oven and let the cupcakes cool for 2-3 minutes, then press the Hershey kisses into the centers. Pushing them in point first works the best. Gently lift them out of the pan and let them cool completely before frosting the cupcakes.
Use a piping bag and icing tip 1M to swirl the salted caramel frosting on in a pretty bakery style. More caramel drizzles and sea salt take these easy cupcakes to another level. And of course, a green straw just completes the look.

I found them! Thank you! I need these for Tue and will not be around Monday night to cook them. Am I good if I cook them
Tonight? Monday night. Then would
I place kisses when hot and frost Tue night?
They would be fine if you made them tonight and frosted them tomorrow. Just make sure to add the caramel kiss to the brownie cups while they are still warm, then let them cool.
I can’t find carmal kissss. Could I just squeeze my homemade Carmel into the middle?
You could, but it might be kind of runny and soak into the brownie. What about using Rolos instead of the kisses?
Ive made these a few times and they're always a hit, some say they are a bit too rich and the frosting is too sweet,, the brownie itself is the bomb, just wondering if toning down the sweetness of the frosting by using cream cheese? I guess i can try it and see what happens....
thank you for sharing is super awesome brownie.....
I just made these! The buttercream frosting is amazing! The brownie cups are still cooling. Can't wait to frost and eat!!
That's awesome! I hope you enjoy them!
I made these for my husband's birthday yesterday. They were a big hit, the whole family loved them!!! Perfect combination of salty sweet. I will definitely be making these over and over again! Thank you for the great recipe!
Woo hoo! That's awesome to hear! Thank you so much for letting me know how much your family loved them 🙂
Hey there! Question: all the brownie mixes in the store suggested either 8x8 or 9x9 pans. Would you recommend two boxed mixes with these sizes?
There are brownie mixes specifically for 9x13 pans too...I believe Pillsbury has one. They usually say family size. You could use 2 of the smaller ones too since all you are doing is making brownie cupcakes with them.
