What you need for Hot Chocolate Cupcakes:

- powdered hot chocolate mix
- unsweetened cocoa powder
- vanilla extract
- vegetable oil
- boiling water
What you need for Marshmallow Frosting:

I know that everyone hates the word moist but these cupcakes are! They’re wonderful and not overly sweet! They’re perfect because these Hot Chocolate Cupcakes are topped with a delicious marshmallow frosting that pairs perfectly with these Hot Chocolate Cupcakes.
Ideas for decorating:
Of course you can just bake the cupcakes and frost them with the marshmallow frosting and they’ll be amazing but they’re even better when you dress them up to look like little mugs of hot cocoa!
Mini marshmallows, mini candy canes, chocolate syrup and a dusting of coco powder are just a few things you can add to your Hot Chocolate Cupcakes to make them extra cute for Christmas.
I really love the candy canes and mini marshmallows on these little desserts! If you’re going to decorate them with mini marshmallows though just remember to keep them in an air tight container or add the marshmallows right before serving so the marshmallows don’t dry out.
