Ingredients (makes 12):
Brownie cupcakes
1/2 stick butter, melted and lightly cooled

Mocha glaze
1/4 cup powdered sugar
3/4 teaspoon cocoa

Brownie cupcakes
Pre heat oven to 350F degrees. Line a muffin pan with paper baking cups and set it aside. Beat egg whites and egg in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until foamy; gradually add sugar, beating until slightly thickened and light in color. In another bowl, mix together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the bowl with egg and sugar mixture, beating until well blended. Gradually add melted butter, beating just until blended. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack. Cool completely. Drizzle mocha glaze over the top, let stand until glaze is set. Enjoy!
