When I think of fall and baked goods, I automatically think of bake sales! Good ol’ fashioned bake sales. I have a bake sale coming up at my daughter’s school, and I want to make something that I know will sell!

I did some research, and after a quick search, I found the top 3 fall bake sale items. They are brownies, cookies, and cupcakes. Then I had a light bulb moment; why not combine all three and make Brookie Cupcakes?!

Brookie Cupcakes Recipe

Brookie Cupcake recipe ingredients:

  • Pillsbury Halloween Funfetti Vanilla Frosting
  • Pillsbury Halloween Sugar Cookie Mix
  • DOVE Dark Chocolates 
  • Pillsbury Halloween Funfetti Brownie Mix

While a lot of the ingredients are holiday-specific, you can use any Funfetti frosting, sugar cookie mix, or brownie mix! 

How to Make Brookie Cupcakes:

  1. Make the brownie batter, fill the muffin tins with batter, and bake until almost done!
  2. Lightly press a Dove Dark Chocolate pumpkin into each brownie.
  3. Make the sugar cookie batter and place 1 1/2 tablespoons of batter on top of each brownie; bake.
  4. Cool on a wire rack, and then add the frosting.
  5. Serve the Brookie Cupcakes!

Cook’s Note:

  • I highly recommend using a 3-tablespoon scoop and a 1 ½ tablespoon scoop in this recipe. It ensures the batter is distributed evenly.
  • These Brookie Cupcakes are easy to customize! Change up the sprinkles and frosting colors to match the season, holiday, party, school colors, sports team, etc.!

  • mixing bowls
  • rubber scraper
  • whisk
  • muffin tins



  • 19.4 ounce box Pillsbury Funfetti Brownie Mix
  • cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 18 Dove Dark Chocolates unwrapped


  • 17.5 ounce box Pillsbury Funfetti Sugar Cookie Mix
  • ½ cup butter at room temperature
  • 1 large egg


  • 15.6 ounce can Pillsbury Funfetti Frosting



  • Move the oven rack to the middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees F (325 iF you’re using a dark muffin tin). Grease muffin tin tins with nonstick baking spray; set aside.


  • In a large bowl add brownie mix (reserving candy costed chips until later), oil, water, and eggs. Whisk everything together until smooth.
  • Distribute batter evenly among 18 wells of muffin tins, this will be about 3 Tablespoons of batter in each well.
  • Bake for 15 minutes on the middle rack.


  • While the brownie layer is baking, add the cookie mix, butter and egg to a medium bowl. Mix until combined and the dough comes together; set aside.


  • Once brownies come out of oven gently push a DOVE chocolate into center of each brownie. Sprinkle the reserved candy coated chips over each brownie (if using and if your brownie mix came with them).
  • Distribute the cookie dough evenly over each brownie, this will be about 1 ½ tablespoons of batter.
  • Use your fingers to gently flatten the cookie dough.
  • Return the muffin tins to the oven and bake 15-20 minutes, or until cookie dough starts to turn golden brown.
  • Cool the brookies in the muffin tins for about 5 minutes. Then remove from muffin tin onto a wire rack to cool completely, about 30-45 minutes.


  • Once cooled, spread frosting over each brookie cupcake and serve!

    I love everything about these! I just picked up a bag of Dove dark chocolates at Target last week but I didn’t see the pumpkins. And, I have a brookie recipe going up later this week =)

  2. These look wonderful and delicious! I need to make them at home for my family and my nephews. They would love them. Great for fall and the cold weather coming up. Yum!

  3. When I first read the title, I had no idea what Brookie Cupcakes were. But after reading your post, it totally makes sense. And I would totally buy these at a bake sale!
