Every other Sunday, after our church service, the entire family eats lunch with my hubby and me (16 total). The first question out of the grandkids’ mouth is, “What’s for dessert?” Chocolate cupcakes with Marshmallow Creme Frosting.
This past Sunday, I made chocolate cupcakes. Who doesn’t like chocolate cupcakes?
I took a detour from my usual cream cheese frosting and decided to do marshmallow creme instead. It seems, according to the grandkids (and the hubs) that I knocked it out of the park!
Cupcakes are the perfect dessert when you’re feeding a crowd. I like to mix things up a bit when it comes to the frosting and this one is a good one. Learn more about the different types of cupcake frostings.

Note: Use your favorite chocolate cupcake recipe (or use a boxed mix, add a tsp. of vanilla to make it taste like you made it from scratch and call it a day).
