Burger Cupcakes

Last month I mentioned that we traveled a fair bit for our Thanksgiving dinners. Normally when we spend Thanksgiving with Dave’s family we end up not bringing anything to share as everything I would like to bring would go bad during the drive or overnight stay before the actual get-together. This year however, I couldn’t take it anymore so I decided to make delicious cupcakes. But these weren’t just any cupcakes — they were Burger Cupcakes!!!

I also mentioned earlier this month that I don’t normally post recipes on my blogs – but I once again had to post this due to the insanely high level of cuteness. The recipe is pretty simple, essentially you bake cupcakes and brownies and then cut the cupcakes in half then place circular pieces of brownies between them. I won’t go into more detail as the version I made is based on the one shown here by Ro of Nerdy Nummies (who Dave and I got to meet at Blizzcon). Although for reference purposes, I did have to use two boxes of brownie mix to one (cup)cake mix box.

And of course, I had to get them taste tested. Big thanks to Olivia for letting me know they were yummy!! Although, the nearly empty cupcake carrier I brought home at the end of the day was also a pretty good sign too.
