A "Berry" Yummy Combo

I pulled together some quick treats for Munch's class.  I also baked some sweets for us to enjoy.  I tellya, if you haven't joined Pinterest, you should. It's a great place to find something new to try...

Looking for recipes?  You're one click away!

While browsing on Pinterest, I saw a pic of neopolitan cupcakes. 


I never visited the original site BUT I think I figured it out bc my variation turned out fab SO I'll share my version with you guys...

Brownie Batter (mixed to package instructions)
Strawberry Cake Batter (mixed to package instructions)
Cupcake wrappers


1.  Place the cupcake wrappers in a cupcake pan
2. Fill each cupcake wrapper with 2 tablespoons of brownie batter
3. Cover with strawberry cake batter  until 2/3 full (many of mine had more)
4. Bake according to cupcake cooking times
5. Let cupcakes cool 15 minutes 
6. Top with vanilla icing

I let Munchface place valentine's cake decor on each cupcake.  I was nervous the lines wouldn't be crisp because I didn't read the original post BUT... It worked just fine.  Check them out:

Chocolate gooey brownies with the super sweet and light strawberry cake?  The perfect combo!  Hubbs loves strawberry cake so I used the leftover batter to make plain strawberry cupcakes and he HAD THE NERVE to be mad when I took them to work.  AH WELL, I'll make more sweets on Valentine's Day.

Do you have any quick ideas for Valentine's Day?!  

Do share in the comments!
