These adorable cupcakes were inspired by a cup of hot chocolate the kids and I were consuming last winter. I had seen others do Hot Chocolate Cupcakes and I wanted to try my hand and coming up with a recipe our family enjoyed.
I used my favorite chocolate cupcake recipe for the batter and the only addition was the mini marshmallows to the batter.
The marshmallow frosting was a little harder. I tried a few different recipes, and I kept winding up with either frosting that got too hard, or frosting that was WAY too runny to work.
I think this super easy marshmallow frosting recipe is perfect and provided you store your cupcakes in a sealed plastic container, I was able to keep the frosting fresh for several days (we usually had them eaten by day 4!)
