Hot Cocoa Cupcakes | Days of Chalk and Chocolate

Hot Cocoa Cupcakes

Share It:
It's snowing today. Drat. I'm not ready for fall to end. I feel like it just came last week here in NJ!  But in the spirit of it all Molly stomped around in it a bit and then came in 5 seconds later declaring she needed hot chocolate to warm herself up. Not to be a mother to deny my child a little chocolate flavored warming, I set to work grating the chocolate, heating the heavy cream, etc. Ok fine. I used the Keurig. But whatever...the marshmallows were homemade. Ok fine! They were from Walmart.   Somewhere someone is DIYing marshmallows and hot chocolate. It's just not here and it's just not me.

Last year we made these adorable hot cocoa inspired cupcakes and it got me in the mood to do them again.

It was just a regular chocolate cake but I used a piping bag for the "whipped cream" icing and then added 3 mini marshmallows (homemade. OK OK!  Not homemade), a sprinkle of cocoa, and a little candy cane as the mug handle. Sweet (literally and figuratively) and easy!

Molly's birthday is Monday and she is beyond excited!  I love that she gets to go trick-or-treating on her birthday.  She will be 5 and I almost can't believe it!  My little baby!

Have a fantastic Halloween weekend. I wish you many treats and no tricks.
