Award-Winning Brownie Cupcake with Hershey Bar Icing

Brownie Cupcake with Hershey® Bar Icing
This is not your typical cupcake. Bake them once and you’ll believe me! They are decadent, delicious, and down right addictive. May not be some fancy recipe, but it has always been a favorite and won the prize at a chocolate cook-off years ago.
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
1 cup butter
1-1/2 cups pecans, roasted and chopped fine
1-3/4 cups sugar
1 cup plain flour
4 extra-large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
Melt chocolate and butter over low heat. Add pecans; stir until coated. Combine sugar, flour, eggs, vanilla; mix well but do not beat. Add chocolate mixture; stir carefully. Pour into paper lined muffin tins. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in a preheated 325 degree oven. As soon as removed from the oven place 2 squares of a Hershey bar on each cake. Let stand for a few minutes; spread icing on cupcake.

Thank you. I have been searching for a good chocolate cupcake recipe. I am baking for a dinner theater group and my deadline is tomorrow. One question: does the chocolate frosting get hard when it cools? Thecontessa@tumbleweedcontessa.com.
Thanks.
