Hey guys!!!  Goodness it is getting chilly out there!!  It is also getting super close to the holidays!  I cannot wait!  I also cannot stop making cute holiday treats!

Does anyone else get a severe case of the baking bug once the holiday music starts up?

This week for our Christmas Dessert Series I made these adorable little Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Marshmallow Buttercream.  The batter is a brownie batter made with hot chocolate packets to give that authentic hot chocolate flavor we all know and love.

Hot Chocolate Cupcakes, Marshmallow Buttercream

Of course you cannot have hot chocolate without marshmallows!!  So a delicious marshmallow buttercream tops off these beauties!

They are amazing!!  It tastes just like your favorite winter warm up drink but oh so much more!

I love to make these in these tiny mason jars, you can bake any cupcake or brownie recipe right in these little jars which actually makes them perfect for gifting!

I topped my cupcakes off with a paper straw and snowman marshmallow and they were almost too cute to eat…almost!!

My family loved them and they were gone in no time.  I know these will definitely have to make an appearance on our Christmas Eve dessert platter!

So next time you need a super delicious and adorable dessert to make just whip up a batch of these Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Marshmallow Buttercream!

    Oh my gosh! These are too good to be true. I have to confess, I don’t have a huge sweet tooth, I’m more of a salty craving girl. So I don’t freak out about cupcake recipes all that much. But these had me at hello! Making these for Christmas dessert. Pinning! So glad you linked this up to the Be. YOU. tiful link party, featuring on Thursday.
