Hot Cocoa Cupcakes

Hot Cocoa Cupcakes

These rich chocolate cocoa cupcakes are filled with gooey marshmallow creme, topped with a sweet marshmallow-y cocoa frosting and a swirl of “whipped cream” frosting and toppings galore.

If you wanna get really festive, you can bake your cupcakes in fun baking cups or oven safe mini paper drinking cups, create a handle out of candy or icing coated pretzels to look like a mug and add fun toppings.

Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Christmas may have come and gone, but as long as chilly weather remains, the season for gingerbread lives on. As it gets colder and we look for more filling treats, gingerbread cupcakes fit the bill pretty darn well. These cupcakes include¬†a delightful blend of warm, winter spices and a heavy dose of molasses for a treat that promises to be as soft and warm as your favorite cozy blanket. If you’re up for topping them with tiny gingerbread people, we absolutely will not judge you, but if you’re not into gingerbread shapes after the holidays, these cupcakes can still provide a delicious treat for colder months.
