You can’t get much more simple than a box mix, but now you can get frosting from Pillsbury right in a piping bag as well, you know I jumped at the chance to make something with these products!

With everything being at Target that I needed, it was a one-stop shopping trip! As soon as I got home I wanted to get baking for my sweetie!

Along with the Pillsbury™ Filled Pastry Bag Chocolate Fudge Frosting, I got Pillsbury™ Brownie Mix, and Crisco® Oil to make my yummy Strawberry Brownie Cups!

Strawberry Brownie Cups Directions:

The other ingredients you need for this recipe are sprinkles (optional), strawberries, water, and eggs! How simple is that?!

First, you need to mix up the brownie batter. Place the Pillsbury™ Brownie Mix, water, Crisco® Oil, and eggs into a large bowl.

Stir the mixture 50 strokes with a spoon. Fill prepared muffin tins up 3/4 of the way full. Make sure to spray your pan VERY well or else these brownie cups tend to stick.

Bake at 375 degrees for 22-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean.

Let brownie cups cool slightly in the tin for about 10 minutes. Using a round end of a spoon or utensil, gently press in the tops of the brownies to form a little hole to make them cups!

Transfer to a wired rack to cool completely. Once cool, pipe in the Pillsbury™ Filled Pastry Bag Chocolate Fudge Frosting, top with half of a strawberry and sprinkles, optional. That’s it!

How cute are these?!

Tips for getting the brownies out of the muffin tin:

Even with using a lot of cooking spray on the muffin tin, these brownies still might stick a little. I have found just running a butter knife all along the edges of the brownie will help loosen them up.

Don’t panic if they stick a bit, try my knife trick and it’s easy to pop them out!

  1. I made these using heart shaped muffin tins, and they are even more adorable! You can use regular size paper muffin liners in them, if you want, and they will conform to the heart shape.
