Choclate chip brownie cupcakes with malted ganache
I heard a new word recently, I'm not sure if it was on Dr. Phul, Dr. Poz or Smoprah (names changed to protect the innocent). Modulation..no...Moderpation..no...Oh yeah it was Moderation. It's some fancy diet thing where you eat moderate amounts of everything and nothing in excess. I dunno, I'm not buying it, it wont stick. I prefer to eat nothing green ( its the color of mold, and who wants eat mold?) and lots of things with chocolate (antioxidants!), butter (dairy!) and sugar ( its a plant, so there!). I am planning on writing a book, "The Doughnut Diaries: One Woman's Quest for the Ultimate Muffin Top". It will probably be in the diet section, but it should really be in self-help, because deliciousness is a life choice.

Cookie recipe here.
I used a size 18/8 scoop to scoop little balls of cookie dough into the center of each cup in a cupcake pan, then I filled the rest of the cup with brownie batter and baked at 350 for about 20-25 min.
Malted Chocolate Ganache:
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/3 cup malted milk powder
- 1/2 cup milk chocolate, chopped or chips
- 3/4 cup dark chocolate, chopped or chips
Whisk cream and malted milk powder in a small saucepan and bring to a gentle boil, remove from heat immediately and pour over chocolate (that's in a bowl, obviously) and let melt for about a minute, whisk to combine. I dunked the tops of my cookiebrowniecupcakes in the ganache.
