These homemade double chocolate brownies from scratch with vanilla cream cheese frosting is like a bite of heaven.
So moist and they have a rich chocolate flavor. Let's get started...
If you are in a hurry, you may use a fudge brownie mix.
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch pan and set aside. You can also place paper baking cup liners in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups, or grease bottoms only of muffin cups.
In a large bowl, beat the butter, vanilla and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
NOTE: Coat the chocolate chips in a little flour before putting them in the batter so they wouldn't fall to the bottom of the pan.
Sift the flour, cocoa powder and salt together and gradually add to the chocolate mixture until just blended. Fold in the chocolate chips and spread into the prepared pan.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool completely.
Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting (optional)
2 cups homemade powdered sugar
4 ounces cream cheese, chilled and cut into chunks
2 TBS soft butter
1 TBS homemade pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
Combine all frosting ingredients together and whip until light and fluffy. Spread frosting over cooled brownie cupcakes and decorate if you wish.
