Blueberry Cream Cheese Brownie Cupcake Recipe

Blueberry Cream Cheese Brownie Cupcakes

You can make your brownies from scratch, using the recipe below, or simply grab a box of fudge brownie mix from the store and bake as directed. They both taste great, so it's really just personal preference. If you don't care for blueberries, this would taste great with strawberries or even a brown sugar and cinnamon mixture. Get creative and mix it up!

Ingredients for Brownies

1/2 cup unsalted butter
4 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 large eggs
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

Baking Brownies:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line 12 muffin tins with paper (or foil) baking cups.

Melt butter and chopped chocolate in a stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. After the chocolate is melted, remove from the heat and let cool. Stir in the sugar, and add the vanilla. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each. Stir in the flour and salt until blended. (You may also use a hand mixer.)

Divide the batter between the 12 muffin cups. Place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

Cream Cheese Icing

2- 8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cream together the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Mix in vanilla, then gradually stir in the confectioners' sugar.

Blueberry Jam

I do not have a good recipe for Blueberry Jam, so I used this Blueberry Jam Recipe from Damn Delicious.

Pour the jam over the iced cupcakes and refrigerate until ready to eat!

These would be great to take to Thanksgiving, to wow the relatives – or to easily sneak poison into if you hate love your mother-in-law as much as I love mine!

Just kidding about the poison. Kind of. And in case you're curious, no, that is not my photo – this was a guest post by Stephanie Bakker. But you wouldn't be as interested in making these delicious little cupcakes if I showed you how crappy the real photo looked. So just make them, eat them, and be happy!

  1. “make them, eat them and be happy”……..yes ma’am!! There is chocolate involved, you don’t have to tell me twice lol. FYI, mine wouldn’t look like that either lol

  2. Do you spray the cupcake liners? When I have tried to make brownies in liners in the past, they stick to the liners or if I just spray the pan, they are still hard to get out…yours look great…what is your secret? :)

    1. If you can find foil liners, then I’d use those and spray them. :)

  3. how long do the actual muffins take to make…i have an assignment for school and i have a 70 minute time limit to make two meals and need to know how long the muffins take to make? oh and if you know anything that goes well after steak and chips, please let me know :)
