Day 164 – Marshmallow Stuffed Chocolate Cupcakes

11 Jan

Alright.  I’ve heard of marshmallow filling, marshmallow frosting and marshmallow fluff all being used in cupcakes.  But, to just stuff a cupcake with a marshmallow?  This could change everything!!  Marshmallow Stuffed Chocolate Cupcakes (recipe below from Today’s Mama).

Chocolate-Cupcake     Mini-Chocolate-Cupcake

The cupcakes are crumbly and cakey. Not dry though.  They have a nice, sweet chocolate flavor. Almost milk chocolate, which is different and nice.

Chocolate-Frosting

The frosting is smooth and creamy.  It has a sugary semi-sweet flavor.

The marshmallow actually brings it all together. It’s smooth and creamy and chocolatey!

Halved-Cupcake

The marshmallow is a little tough to bite, without making a mess. The minis are a nice bite-size attempt though. And much easier to eat.

They’re a little tougher to eat than the average cupcake. You pretty much need a knife and a fork to get all the parts.
