On to the dessert! These homemade chocolate cupcakes, topped with a adhesive toasted marshmallows, discrimination upright like a creamy cup of hot drinkable.

The cupcake fundament is supremely moist, ultra fluffy, and laden of lush, decadent umber kind. The strike is made with foodstuff, egg nutrient, liquefied butter, oil, lemony emollient, and hot potable. All of these ingredients add intemperate moisture and savor to the cupcake, and I do not urge leaving any of them out. This is a direction I impart shadowing to a T. Why disorderliness with perfection?

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, not packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs + 1 large egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup full fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup hot coffee
  • For the Chocolate Frosting:
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, very soft
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk or half and half
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • For the Chocolate Drizzle:
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces

For the Chocolate Cupcakes:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F). Line a 12-cup cupcake/muffin tin with cupcake liners and lightly spray the liners with non-stick spray (optional but it does help them peel right off).
  2. Melt the oil, butter, and chocolate together in the microwave, heating in 30 second increments, stirring between increments. You can also melt the oil, butter, and chocolate over very low heat on the stove top, but I find the microwave to be much easier. Whisk mixture until completely smooth and set aside to cool.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt; stir together until thoroughly combined; set aside.
  4. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, yolk, sugar and vanilla extract; beat until smooth.
  5. Add the cooled oil/butter/chocolate mixture and whisk until smooth. Add half of the flour mixture, then half of the sour cream. Repeat the process until everything is added, and be sure to mix until JUST combined. Quickly stir in the hot coffee - it's important not to over mix, here! Just stir until everything is evenly combined.
  6. Divide the batter among the 12 liners in your prepared pan. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.
  7. For the Chocolate Frosting:
  8. Sift together the confectioners sugar and cocoa powder, whisking well to ensure it's bump and lump free!
  9. Using a handheld mixer OR a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium-high speed until creamy; about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to low and slowly add the sifted sugar/cocoa powder, alternating with the sour cream and milk, then add the vanilla extract and salt. Once all of the ingredients have been added, increase speed to medium-high and beat the frosting until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  10. Frost cooled cupcakes as desires, then top with chocolate drizzle, sprinkles, and a toasted marshmallow.
  11. Cupcakes stay fresh, stored in the fridge, in an airtight container, for up to 3 days. Bring to room temperature before serving.

For the Chocolate Drizzle (optional):

  1. Place chocolate in a medium-sized heat-proof bowl; set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, warm the heavy cream until very hot, but not boiling. Pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate and set it aside for 2-3 minutes. Whisk the cream and chocolate completely smooth; whisk in vanilla. Allow the chocolate to cool for about 5 minutes before spooning the on the top of each frosted cupcake. Top the wet chocolate with sprinkles and a toasted marshmallow.
  3. For the marshmallows:
  4. Place the marshmallows on a large baking sheet and set aside. Position one of your oven racks right below the broiler; preheat your oven to broil. Once the oven reaches the broiler setting, place marshmallows in the oven to toast.
  5. Warning: The marshmallows toast almost immediately - so stay right near the oven! Once browned, quickly remove the pan from the oven and let cool for a minute or two. Using a spatula remove the marshmallows from the pan and place one on top of each frosted cupcakes.
