Hot Chocolate Cupcakes
January for me should be called Cupcake Month. I swear I bake other things... really I do. But between orders for birthdays and parties, and all the cupcake ideas I have been testing out with Corinne (my partner in kitchen crime), it seems like cupcakes are just on the brain recently. (Corinne who, by the way, made a delicious Coconut Vanilla cupcake that we'll have to get up here soon... it's scrumptious.) So here's another one of January's babies: the Hot Chocolate cupcake.
I was trying to think of a way to transform one of my favorite wintertime treats into a cupcake and I think I've got it down. It's a moist chocolate cupcake made with Stephen's hot chocolate in the batter. A marshmallow frosting that looks and tastes like a giant melted marshmallow "floats" on top. And to crown it off are a few mini marshmallows and a sprinkling of cinnamon. And the best part? It will never burn your tongue!
