Ok – how delicious do these cupcakes look? With the weather getting cooler, the kids are asking for hot chocolate almost every day. Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows? GOOD. Cupcakes? GOOD! Even better? A combination of the two! Your kids are going to love these (and you probably will as well) and they are fairly easy to make – just a few extra steps more than making “regular” cupcakes with a store-bought mix!
