Soft and dreamy hot chocolate cupcakes topped with marshmallows and filled with melted Heshey’s Mint Kiss centers. A kid-friendly, easy cupcake recipe!
I had so much fun creating this hot chocolate cupcake 🙂 Hot chocolate is the best during the winter so why not add it to your cupcakes?! Talk about a dreamy, soft chocolate cupcake with a surprise mint truffle-kissed center. These are truly to die for….can’t wait for you guys to give these a try. Can you practically taste the toasted marshmallows on top? Mmmm!
Have fun whipping these up with your family. They’ll be a huge hit 🙂 Happy baking!
Here’s your line up!
Feel free to use any brand of hot chocolate mix, even your own recipe is A-OK 🙂
Make a small cup of hot chocolate for the cupcake batter. Just warm milk, not hot!
This is some good batter 🙂
Fill your cupcake liners up….
Break out your mint kisses or even the candy cane ones work 🙂
Press a kiss in centers of cupcakes and time to bake.
Top with marshmallows and bake some more.
Until they look like this 🙂
Stick a trimmed straw inside for a little decoration and time to EAT!
