Dark Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Frosting
These are the same cupcakes I made for my friend Jessica except they are now for my friend Allison’s birthday. The salted caramel frosting is nearly the same as before, but instead, a more thick caramel was made and the frosting is now much thicker, less pillowy, still delicious.
Ingredients for Brownies
1 1/3 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
¾- cup Hershey’s special dark cocoa powder
½ tbsp ground coffee or espresso powder
1 ½ cup granulated sugar
1 ½ cup light brown sugar
¾ cup butter (1 ½ sticks), softened at room temperature
4 large eggs, at room temperature (it is crucial that you DO NOT use cold eggs)
3 tbsp sour cream
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
Ingredients for Frosting
½ cup + 2 tbsp heavy cream
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
8 tbsp (1 stick) salted sweet cream butter
3 cups powdered sugar
Fleur de sel (French sea salt) or regular sea salt for garnishing
Directions for Brownies
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a muffin tin with liners and set aside
Sift your dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, and salt) into a bowl and set aside
In a large bowl or standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream your butter until it is smooth.
Once your butter is creamed, add in your sour cream and vanilla extract. Add in both types of sugar and mix thoroughly, and slowly begin adding in your eggs one at a time. Be sure to scrape the sides of your bowl and incorporate ingredients with a flat spatula as you go along
Finally, add in your dry ingredients and mix until your batter comes together.
Your batter WILL be dark so don’t worry
Evenly divide your brownie batter into the muffin tin and bake for about 20-24 minutes. You want the inside of the brownies to still be slightly wet but not UNDERCOOKED. Using a toothpick or a dry piece of spaghetti, check your batter, it should come out with CRUMBS and a small amount of batter on it, not a fully wet batter
Remove the brownies from the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes while you make the ganache.
*The brownies will puff up when they bake but once they cool, they will slightly deflate and create a little dip/pocket which is a perfect place to put your frosting
Directions for Frosting
In a sauce pan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat.
Once gently simmering, add in the brown sugar and butter, melting them together until most of the sugar crystals dissolve.
Bring to a gentle boil and allow to do so for about 30 seconds-1 minute.
Remove from heat, add in 1 tsp of sea salt, and let cool completely before making frosting.
In a standing mixer or large mixing bowl, add in the vanilla extract and slowly begin, ½ cup at a time, adding the powdered sugar.
(If you want to color your frosting, begin adding in your food coloring until your reach your desired color).
Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl with a flat spatula to continue incorporating the ingredients.
If you want a very thick frosting, add in a small amount (maybe 2 tbsp) of cornstarch or arrowroot starch and be sure to incorporate fully.
Once the frosting has thickened, give it a final stir and pipe onto your cooled cupcakes.
You tiptoed down the darkened hall. The cool wood felt nice against your bare feet. Despite the sun not being up it was still pretty warm. All though, in fairness, it wouldn’t have mattered if it was the dead of winter and below freezing; you were always warm. One of the fringe benefits of being a pyropath. Another one being a heightened metabolism. And that metabolism was the exact thing that sent you on your mission to the school’s kitchen.
It was late, you weren’t sure how late; you didn’t bother to check the clock before leaving your room, and aside from the soft snoring coming from Kurt’s room, completely silent. Everything was still. That is until you felt a slight breeze brush against you. Before your tired mind could put together that there were no windows in the hall, let alone open ones, so there was no way for a breeze to get in and just what that meant, your thoughts were interrupted.
“Where ya goin’?”
You jumped at the voice. Turning quickly around, you found yourself face to face with a silver haired boy with brown eyes.
“Jesus, Peter!” you whisper yelled, smacking his arm. “I told you to stop sneaking up on me like that!”
“I’m not big on listening. It’s one of my issues.” He put air quotes around the word ‘issues’, suggesting that this was something someone else had told him. “So what are you doing up? It’s late. Where ya goin’? Watcha doin’?”
“My tummy woke me up,” you said simply.
“Ditto,” Peter said, moving to your side, draping an arm around your shoulders, and turning you back around. “I’m in the mood for something healthy like… strawberry poptarts.” He looked at you, as you snorted at his idea of a healthy snack. “What about you?”
“I wanna stake. Ooh ooh or an ice cream sundae! Jean made brownies a few hours ago.”
“Babe,” He smiled at you. “That’s the best idea I’ve heard all day.”
When the two of you entered the kitchen, you immediately started pulling things of the shelves. By the time you had pulled out two spoons, the ice cream scoop, and two bowls, you turned around to find Peter had already put three tubs of ice cream, the brownies, chocolate sauce, a can of whip cream, and bag of chocolate chips on the island. You smiled grabbing some nuts and strawberries.
Peter gave you a funny look to which you responded to by saying, “You wanted something healthy, right?” You slid into a stool at the island, before quickly looking up at Peter. “Don’t forget the-”
“Rainbow sprinkles?” He handed you the tub. “I’m not an idiot.”
“Debatable,” you smirked, taking the container of sprinkles.
“Hey!” Peter elbowed you in the side, as he took a seat next to you.
Laughing, you put a large brownie into each bowl and slid one over to him. Peter had an open tub of rocky road in front of him. Propping your head up on your hand, your elbow resting on the table, you watched as he repeatedly jabbed the scoop at the frozen solid ice cream. It barely made a dent.
After what seemed like forever and an uncountable number of mostly blurred jabs, Peter let out a sigh. He turned his head to look at you, pushing the rocky road towards you a tad.
“Y/N, would ya mind?”
“Oh, of course, Pete,” you smiled. Putting your hands on either side of the tub, you heated it up. Not enough to turn it into a liquid, but enough to make it easily scoopable. Then you released the ice cream back to Peter.
Gratefully, he took it back. He put a few scoops into his bowl and leaned over to put a few in yours. He did the same with the chocolate ice cream and cookie dough ice cream. You then proceeded to pour enough chocolate sauce into both your bowls to blanket the piles of ice cream from view.
While you talked nonstop about pretty much everything that popped into your mind, your exhaustion had effectively erased your filter, while you smothered your ice cream in toppings, the second you started eating, the conversation came to a screeching halt. Both of you were starving, and there simply wasn’t time between shoving spoonfuls of sugar into your mouth to speak.
When you had finished and were full, for the moment, you flopped your head onto his shoulder.
“Peeeteeeerrr,” you whined, “carry me back to my room.”
Chuckling softly, he leaned his head down to rest on top of yours.
“Yeah, I’m not goin’ do that.” You made a small noise in protest. “But I will clean all this up, so you don’t have to.”
“You’re the best,” you said sleepily, letting him push you back into an upright position so that he could get up.
He zoomed off, and you watched as his blur quickly cleared off the counter. In under a minute Peter was back at your side.
“That was fast,” you joked, getting to your feet.
“I may not have put everything back in the right place.” He looped and arm around your waist as the two of you started out the kitchen.
“That’ll kill Jean,” you laughed.
“Hm. It will won’t it.”
It didn’t take long to get past the rows of identical doors and get to the one that belonged to you. Turning so that your back was to the door, you looked up at Peter.
“You know, I don’t have to go back to my room.” He gave you a cheeky smile. “I could just go into yours and-”
“Or,” You slipped your hands into his back pockets, lightly pulling him towards you. “I could go in here,” You nodded to your door. “And you could walk on down the hall to your room. And we both go to bed and get some sleep so we don’t look quite so dead in the morning.”
“You’re no fun.” Peter stuck out his bottom lip in show of his protest.
“I promise,” You placed a kiss to his cheek. “I will be more fun once I’ve had some sleep.”
“Fine,” he sighed, “I guess I can live with that.”
“You’re gonna have to.”
Peter place a kiss to your lips. You removed your hands from his pockets, putting them instead on his chest.
“Good night, Pete.” You turned to open your bedroom door.
