1 Devils Food Cake Mix

4 eggs

1/2 Cup vegetable oil

1 small box instant chocolate pudding mix

1 Cup sour cream

3/4 Cup warm milk mixed with 1 packet hot chocolate mix

24 mint truffle kisses (or the Candy Cane ones work great too)

3-4 Cups mini marshmallows

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place cake mix,  eggs, oil, pudding mix, sour cream and mixed hot chocolate into a stand mixer on medium speed. Mix until well combined, about 1 1/2 minutes. Scoop into 24 paper lined muffin tins about 3/4 full. Place a mint truffle kiss into center of each cupcake pressing to bottom. Bake for 18 minutes, remove and top with marshmallow. Return back to oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until marshmallows are puffed and just starting to brown. Remove and let cool. You can place a cut straw into each cupcake if desired to decorate.
