Hot Chocolate Raspberry Cupcake Recipe

These are adorable and totally scrump (any Seinfeld fans out there??)! This recipe does involve the cupcake batter, a filling, and a frosting… and while that seems a bit tedious for cupcakes, I promise that it’s worth it! And, it’s really not so bad once you get started. ;)

I love the delicate pink shade of the raspberry frosting! I think it’s cute to decorate these with mini marshmallows (they go with the whole hot chocolate theme) and chocolate sprinkles. Who doesn’t love sprinkles?? Oh, and you know who especially loves them? My sweet niece! She helped me bake these, and is also the reason for the addition of the hot pink sprinkles on these cupcakes.
