Choc Mallow Cupcakes

These Choc Mallow Cupcakes are really moist, marbled cupcakes with a marshmallow topping.

Marshmallows are baked on top for the last few minutes of cooking and then the cooled cupcakes are drizzled in melted chocolate. Decadent, but yummy.

Every time I make chocolate marshmallow cupcakes, I am asked for the recipe!
