Strawberry Brownie Cupcakes!

I decided to try out a new recipe this weekend that I found on Pinterest! Strawberry brownie cupcakes -- yummy, right?! For this recipe I used one box of brownies and one box of strawberry cake mix. I fixed each box according to the back of the package and preheated my oven to 350.

Okay, I'm going to get really technical when I explain my process.... :) I took my batter of brownie mix and added a dollop to the bottom of the cupcake liner. Then I took the cupcake batter and added a larger dollop on top. I was able to make 24 cupcake brownies, with that I had more brownie batter left over than cupcake batter. So I decided to pour the rest of the brownie batter in a pan and bake a small batch of brownies. I had enough cupcake batter left over to make two more plain strawberry cupcakes.

Here's what it looks like when I added my dollops of batter to the liners.

After pouring the batter for my strawberry brownie cupcakes I baked them at 350 degrees for 22 minutes. I let them cool completely, and I iced them with vanilla icing. For this batch, I iced them with some store bought icing because I was running short on time.

They look so yummy, right?!

Next time I make them, I'll make my own icing and top them with a fresh strawberry, for a little something extra. 
But they were delicious the way they were!
