Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Marshmallow ButterCream

Hey guys!!!  Goodness it is getting chilly out there!!  It is also getting super close to the holidays!  I cannot wait!  I also cannot stop making cute holiday treats!

Does anyone else get a severe case of the baking bug once the holiday music starts up?

This week for our Christmas Dessert Series I made these adorable little Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Marshmallow Buttercream.  The batter is a brownie batter made with hot chocolate packets to give that authentic hot chocolate flavor we all know and love.

Of course you cannot have hot chocolate without marshmallows!!  So a delicious marshmallow buttercream tops off these beauties!

They are amazing!!  It tastes just like your favorite winter warm up drink but oh so much more!

I love to make these in these tiny mason jars, you can bake any cupcake or brownie recipe right in these little jars which actually makes them perfect for gifting!

I topped my cupcakes off with a paper straw and snowman marshmallow and they were almost too cute to eat…almost!!

My family loved them and they were gone in no time.  I know these will definitely have to make an appearance on our Christmas Eve dessert platter!

So next time you need a super delicious and adorable dessert to make just whip up a batch of these Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Marshmallow Buttercream!

i don’t understand the people who are like ALL NATURAL FOOD ONLY NO CHEMICALS

like today i discovered they now make like molten chocolate cake/hot fudge brownie/warm cookie bowl things? you just mix this powder with water and then after it microwaves you add a bit of chocolate sauce, and that’s literally all it takes. it took me 3 minutes and $3, and it didn’t involve buying a huge quantity of a perishable thing (eggs, milk) that i dont have room to store, and holy shit it was goddamn DELICIOUS i ate that brownie like my life depended on it, i have had better warm brownies but only RARELY

why are you shitting on the advancement of food science, the approaching end of scarcity, and something that let me, personally, as a broke person w no fridge, enjoy a goddamn brownie
