Brownie Batter Cocoa- Fudge Cupcakes

OR DEATH BY CHOCOLATE is what these cupcakes should be called. CHOCOLATE LOVERS will adore this recipe!! Proceed with caution though when making these because these fudge-like cupcakes might cause you to slip into a chocolate induced coma after eating just one, but I can't think of a better way to leave this life than by eating one of these scrumptious cupcakes *Swoon*. The cupcake is made up of 3 components: delicious cakey brownie, the fudgy brownie centers, and the smooth and creamy chocolate frosting that tops off this sinful dessert. After making a batch of these, be prepared to share with your girlfriends or even guy friends because this recipe makes and frosts 36 godlike cupcakes. I promise that they really will thank you for putting them into a chocolate cupcake induced coma! Enjoy MY fellow Chocolate Lovers!

a pinch of table salt
1.5 cups of light corn syrup

16 oz. Milk chocolate chips

Directions: Melt chocolate chips in the microwave stirring well every 30 seconds. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine butter, sugar, cocoa and salt in a food processor and process till smooth, about 30 seconds. Scrap the bowl as needed. Add the corn syrup and vanilla and process until just combined about 5-10 seconds. Scrape the bowl again, then add the melted chocolate chips and pulse until creamy and smooth. If you don't have a food processor, you can use your mixer, just don't whip the butter too much. Frost cupcakes with knife or put frosting in a ziploc baggie and cut off tip to make an elegant frosted topped cupcake!
