In desserts we always completely forget that marshmallows exist, this time we decided to add them to this recipe and it came out delicious!
1 box Devil’s food cake mix, plus ingredients called for on box
24 large marshmallows
1 c. butter, softened
2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
3/4 c. cocoa powder
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
pinch of kosher salt
1/4 c. heavy cream
Preheat oven to 350° and line two 12-cup cupcake pans with cupcake liners.
Prepare Devil’s Food cake mix according to package instructions. Fill each cupcake liner about two-thirds full with batter and bake until a toothpick inserted into each cupcake comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Using a teaspoon, scoop a small well out of each cupcake. Reserve cupcake crumbs for garnish. Place a marshmallow into each well and bake until the marshmallow puffs, about 5 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
Make chocolate frosting: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat butter, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt. Beat in heavy cream (adding more by the tablespoon until consistency is creamy but can hold peaks).
Pipe frosting onto cupcakes. Sprinkle cupcake crumbs on top and serve.
