Make your own brownie or chocolate chip cookie sundae cups, the perfect serving size!
We love sundaes as much as the next person, but it’s easy to overindulge. These brownie sundae cups are the perfect serving size and they’re pretty easy to make too!
Brownie Sundae Cups
1/4 cup butter, cut into pats
6 oz semi sweet choc chips
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
In a microwave safe bowl combine choc chips and butter, Microwave 30 seconds, remove from microwave, stir with a fork, return to microwave for 10-15 seconds more, remove from microwave, stir with a fork, until smooth.
Add the remaining ingredients, mixing until smooth.
Add up to 1/3 cup chopped nuts, if you prefer.
Lightly Grease the bottoms and sides of the muffin tins. Pour the batter evenly into each of the tins, filling them about half full.
Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 18-22 min.
This method ALSO works using your favorite cookie dough too!!
While they are baking, spray the bottom of another muffin tin with non-stick spray.
As soon as they come out of the oven, Gently press the greased muffin tin into the cooked brownies, creating “cups”.
Let them rest 12-15 minutes.
Remove the pan, using a butter knife, gently cut around the edges inside to loosen any brownie that may be sticking to the pan.
Let them cool completely, then remove the brownie cups from the tins by sliding a fork in between the brownie and the pan and gently scooping them out.
This method ALSO works using chocolate chip cookie dough in place of the brownie batter.
Fill with a scoop of ice cream, top with your favorite toppings such as homemade berry sauce, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, hot fudge sauce, peanut butter sauce, etc!
If you’re in a hurry and you don’t allow the brownies to cool, they WILL break into pieces when you try to remove them. They’ll still be tasty, but they won’t be pretty!
If you don’t happen to have a second muffin tin you can use silicone muffin liners that have been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray as we did here:
(The white balls are clay pie weights). This was one of those… “where did that pan disappear to” kind of days…

How many cups does this make?
the recipe makes 12 brownie cups in a regular size muffin tin.
I made these last night using Mini-Muffin tins and instead of using the pie weights I just took them out of the oven about a minute or so earlier and immediately pressed my wilton muffin tin into it partway to create the indented bowls.
The trick is to take them out of the pan quickly before they cool and let them cool on a rack instead. They are perfect for small scoops of ice cream, just the right size dessert, my daughter loved them filled with sliced strawberries. It’s nice to have a treat that isn’t huge or oversweet.
