Ninja Tips

  • Use lighter muffin tins (darker colored muffin tins may create too much heat)
  • Try filling the tins just 1/2 full if your recipe overflows too much
  • You can add the 2nd muffin tin 5-8 minutes before the brownies come out of the oven if your recipe does not respond well (as opposed to cooking with both tins the entire time)
  • Make sure they cool completely before removing from the tins
  • Smashing with the 2nd muffin tin AFTER baking typically just condenses and smashes the brownie cups flat in the tins. If you try this method - be gentle. ;)
  • Still struggling? We found a pan that was built for you! Check out this Wilton Dessert Cup pan! For just around $8 this pan can make all of your brownie dreams come true!

Note: If you have a problem with your brownie recipe or your pans and things don't seem to work, you can always try the Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowls below, but switch out the dough with this "brownie like" Double Chocolate Cookies recipe. They work like a charm!
