Can we talk for a minute about brownies?  I just love a nice, thick, rich, fudgy brownie, don't you?  If I had my choice of chocolaty treats, I'd go for the frosted chocolate brownie every time.

I like the dense texture, the intense chocolate flavor, and I adore a sweet chocolate brownie frosting.  Oh, and when the edges get all chewy...yum times 10!  Times 100! Uh, just so darn good.

When I decided to join in the #Choctoberfest fun this month, I knew right away that I would be making brownies.  But, not just any old brownies.  Oh, no.  There is nothing ordinary about my brownies.

You see, one of the sponsors of #Choctoberfest is Lindt Chocolate.  If you have not experienced the sweet decadence of Lindt Chocolate, well then, you simply have not lived.

It. Is. Amazing.

I used that glorious Lindt Chocolate in every element of this recipe.  There is a melted Lindt 70% Cocoa EXCELLENCE Bar in the brownie batter and there's Lindt Milk Chocolate CLASSIC RECIPE Bar melted into the icing.

And let's not forget that little bit of chocolate tucked inside the center of each brownie.  You're welcome.

Remember those chewy brownie edges that I told you I love?  That's why I made these babies into brownie cupcakes.  More edges touching the pan means more chewy goodness.  I added the cupcake liners to avoid sticking and because I thought the idea of a brownie cupcake was too cute!

They turned out to be the perfect combination of everything I love about a brownie in a cute little cupcake form.

These Brownie Cupcakes are perfectly portioned, full of chocolatey goodness, and topped with a little walnut crunch.  For a rich chocolate treat, they can't be beat!  At least not in my book!
