Rocky Road Cupcakes Recipe:


☆ Cupcake Mix ☆

  • 1 1/2 sticks butter
  • 7 oz. dark chocolate
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • About 1/2 cup pecan halves

☆ Frosting ☆

  • 7 oz. dark chocolate
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons honey

2 tablespoons butter (room temperature)

☆ Decoration ☆

  • mini marshmallows
  • pecans



☆ Cupcake Mix ☆

1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees C.

2. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Break the chocolate into pieces and melt it in the pan with the butter at low temperature. Mix until smooth, then pull the pan off the heat and let cool slightly.

3. Lightly beat the eggs with the sugar, then stir in the chocolate mixture.

4. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt, then add to the batter. Mix until smooth.

5. Divide the batter into cupcake liners and sprinkle the pecans and marshmallows over the batter.

6. Bake on the oven’s lowest rack for about 15-20 minutes for a slightly underbaked, gooey middle. Allow to cool.

☆ Frosting ☆

1. Bring the cream and honey to a boil, then turn off the heat and quickly mix the chopped chocolate into the hot cream. Stir until all the chocolate has melted.

2. Add the butter and mix until smooth. Let the frosting harden at room temperature, preferably until the next day. Cool it in the fridge if you’re in a hurry, but watch closely so it doesn’t get too hard.

3. Spread chocolate frosting on each cupcake and decorate it with mini marshmallows and pecans.
