Mint chocolate is one of my ultimate favorite combinations. So I knew I had to make these right when I saw them! They are SO good!!
Taste: The cupcakes really do taste like hot chocolate, and the mint and marshmallow adds great flavors!
Texture: The cupcake is moist and spongey, and the mint kissed center melted in in the center almost like a lava cake.
Would I make this again?: Yes, they were really easy and SO delicious!!
Hot Chocolate Cupcakes With Mint Kissed Centers
Found: Picky Palate
1 Devils Food Cake Mix
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.
