Pillsbury Brownie mix, Dark Fudge make cupcakes with crispy brownie top.
Here is how to convert the brownie box mix to cake: Use extra large eggs, 33% more Canola oil, pretty warm Arabian coffee instead of water. Mix all liquid together first then add to brownie powder.
Spray cupcake liners with Bakers Joy. Put Oreo cookie in each cupcake well, 1/4 cup batter. I add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts to a box, BUT, add nuts by hand to each cupcake well, for even distribution.
Bake 325 F degrees for 40 minutes, toothpick comes out clean, because it's cake not brownies.
The cookies and nuts will float on top but it looks really kewl when done. :)

If I was making brownies then the toothpick comes out dirty with crumbs when done, BUT, cake toothpick comes out clean.
I thought I messed up 3 boxes of brownies but I invented a new thing. My puppy "Summer Mousse" , like a dessert made me lose count of the oil. That's Some Moose .... :). I got about 4 1/2 dozen
Cinnamon PaZazzz Option:
I also added 1 tsp of ground cinnamon to each box of brownie mix; I comment last because it matches the brownie frosting that goes with that option.
6 tbsp butter softened,
2 1/2 cup confection sugar,
1 tsp cinnamon,
1 tbsp honey,
2 tsp vanilla extract,
and make your own
Dutch Chocolate ingredient:
Heat up 1/3 cup of either: (heavy cream, half and half, evaporated milk or whole 2% milk) and add 3 1/2 ounce Unsweetened baking cocoa powder, a plus heaping 1/4 tsp baking soda) set aside.
Use stand mixer, whisk and cream room temperature butter; THEN, on low speed add in your Dutch Chocolate, cinnamon, honey, vanilla and confection sugar one cup at a time ( Might need to switch to beaters.). Continue to beat for 30 seconds.
When frosting just drop a tablespoon of frosting on top of each brownie; it will spread out by itself, do not spread it. (My brownies were cooling or about room temperature 80 degrees)
Add colorful sprinkles; placing in refrigerator will set the frosting.
