A Brownie Chalkboard Cupcake For A Teacher Gift

Made a Brownie Chalkboard Cupcake as a fun Back to School treat or teacher appreciation gift from the kids. So cute and easy to make.


I thought it would be fun for the end of year teacher thanks, or teacher appreciation week, to create a cupcake with a chalkboard on top. So, I made a make-shift little chalkboard out of Milk Chocolate Brownies. I covered it in chocolate, added a piece of chalk (Good & Plenty), and wrote A+ on the chalkboard. And, VOILA’ it’s a fun teacher cupcake

  • Milk Chocolate Brownies mix – made according to package directions – Only use parchment paper under your batter, so you can lift your chalkboard shapes easily.
  • Green chocolate melts
  • teacher cupcake
  • White chocolate melts –
  • Wax paper on a cookie sheet
  • Cupcakes with white frosting
  • Good & Plenty – White pieces for chalk
  • Small Watercolor Paintbrush –  for painting the A+ on the chalkboard

Now, here’s what you’ll need to do: for each chalkboard topper


  • Cut a 2×3 rectangle out of the prepared  brownies, place it on your wax paper
  • Take a small piece of the prepared brownie mixture, and roll it into a ball, then roll that into an oblong shape for the chalkboard tray. Place it on the was paper, and flatten a bit.
  • Place the brownie pieces into the freezer
  • While those are cooling, prepare your green chocolate. Melt it in a bowl, using the instructions on the bag.
  • When your chocolate is melted, pull the cooled brownie pieces out of the freezer.
  • Use a spreading knife to smooth the chocolate onto the front of your rectangle piece.
  • Add your oblong brownie piece to the bottom of the chalkboard while the chocolate is still warm.


  • Add your white piece of Good & Plenty above the brownie tray while chocolate is still warm.


  • Pop your chalkboard in the freezer to let the chocolate set.
  • Now, melt your white chocolate in a bowl.
  • Take your chalkboards out & use your paintbrush to paint an A+ on the board!


  • You can put the finished chalkboards into the freezer until you are ready to present them.
  • When you are ready, kids can place a chalkboard into the center of a white frosted cupcake. Yummy!
