Preparation Time

30 minutes


Your favorite devils food cake batter

Full-size marshmallows

Muffin pan


Mix devil's food (chocolate) cupcake batter.

Fill muffin tins only half full.

Push a marshmallow in the center. (It will stick up a bit)

Bake as normal.

The marshmallow toasts on top, melts, bubbles all over, and leaves a cavity in the middle. (a cauldron! :))

You can fill the cavity with pistachio pudding, ice cream, frosting, candy, whipped cream, peanut butter, Fluff, jelly.... anything. or just leave them plain.

I have also tried putting other things besides marshmallows in the center before baking... a mini Reeses peanut butter cup (yum), Rolo carmels, chocolate chips, a spoon of fudge ice cream topping, Hershey kiss... most of these sink and melt during baking and make a fudgy bottom.
