Chocolate Marshmallow Cupcakes

March 10, 2013

Gooey Madness

It took me 3 attempts to get these cupcakes right! The original recipe was a marshmallow cake, but I found the recipe problematic because the marshmallows were only included in the icing.  I felt this was very misleading so I reinvented the recipe to ensure that marshmallows were actually in the cake.  Marshmallows are very difficult to work with as I quickly discovered.  Not only did my cupcakes keep collapsing but the textures were very uneven.  My recipe ensures that the cupcakes will not only be a nice texture but will taste like marshmallow in every bite.  However, I also found out that my chocolate icing intensified the chocolate flavour so the whole cupcake tasted like a delicious cloud.

This recipe was re invented from the Mini Marshmallow packet by Van Damme.

Chocolate Marshmallow Cupcakes


125g butter, 125g sugar, 2 eggs, 140g self-raising flour, 3 tbsps cocoa powder, 10ml condensed milk, 80g marshmallows, 2 tbsps icing sugar.


1. Beat the butter and the icing sugar together.
2. Beat in the eggs one after the other.
3. Sift in the flour and 2 tbsps cocoa powder.
4. Mix everything well.
5. Add the milk mix until the mixture is loosened.
6. Gently fold in 60g marshmallows.
7.  Pre heat the oven to 140 degrees C.
8. Divide the mixture into 12 cupcake cases in a cupcake baking tray.
9. Bake the cupcakes for 25 minutes.
10. The cupcakes are done when firm to the touch and skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre.
11. While the cupcakes cool mix the icing sugar with 10ml of water.
12 Add 1 tbsp of cocoa powder and 20g marshmallows.
13 Keep adjusting the mixture until it has the desired consistency.
14.  When the cupcakes are cool top the cupcakes with the chocolate marshmallow icing.
