Hot Chocolate Cupcakes With Mint Kissed Centers
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. Can you practically taste the toasted marshmallows on top? Mmmm!
Servings 24 cupcakes
- 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
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.
