  • About 1/2 cup Betty Crocker® stars, confetti or critters decors


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 12 muffin cups (2 3/4 x 1 1/4 inches).
  2. In medium microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and butter uncovered on High 45 to 60 seconds or until melted and mixture can be stirred smooth.
  3. In large bowl, beat eggs and egg yolks with wire whisk or electric mixer until foamy. Reserve chocolate syrup pouch from brownie mix. Gradually beat dry brownie mix into egg mixture until well blended. Gently stir in melted chocolate mixture. Fill muffin cups half full of brownie mixture; top each with 1/2 teaspoon decors.
