Brown Butter Vanilla Bean Popcorn Chocolate Cupcakes are worthy of an Academy Award

It's Oscar night and your Academy Awards party is well under way. The stars have walked the red carpet. The fashionista police have scrutinized every sequin. You've thought of everything: great party favors, fun games to play, tasty food and libations. Ellen has kept your guests in stitches for a couple hours now. Everyone is waiting to know who will take home the Oscar for Best Picture. It's time for your closeup.

Just before they announce the winner for Best Picture you bring out the dessert. On your tray are the nominations for best chocolate cupcakes. Oozing with confidence you proudly list the ingredients: "Covered with brown butter vanilla bean frosting, topped with, yes that's right, a little brown butter, brown sugar vanilla bean popcorn and then, drizzled all over with chocolate."

Yes. These are insane. No doubt about it, the winner is… Sugared Brown Butter Vanilla Bean Popcorn Chocolate Cupcakes. Take a bow.
