I made some Halloween themed cupcakes for Porch Treats (click here for an explanation of Porch Treats) and decided to experiment with marshmallows in cupcakes and the experiment went very well! You can’t see the marshmallow because it’s covered up by the frosting but it’s there and made these cupcakes super sweet!
1 box cake mix plus ingredients to make cupcakes
1 bag large marshmallows
1 batch of homemade buttercream icing or 1 tub of store bought frosting
various Halloween themed sprinkles, candies, candy eyes, etc
1 Make cupcake batter as directed on cake mix box. Line 2 muffin tins with Halloween themed cupcake liners. Fill cupcakes about 1/2 way full then push 1 marshmallow into each batter filled liner. Bake as directed on cake mix box.
2 When cupcakes are done, you can remove from oven to cool or if you want more marshmallow, you can top each cupcake with another marshmallow and return to oven for 1 – 2 minutes or until marshmallow is soft. Allow cupcakes to cool completely.
3 When cooled, frost cupcakes and top with sprinkles, candy, etc.
