Wait a second that’s not how the rhyme goes! Well any excuse to eat a cupcake, right? And a chocolate cupcake, covered in marshmallows…girllllllll you better give me one right now!
So what inspired this? Pinterest of course! That paried with a serious craving for moist chocolatey cupcakes.
I followed a standard chocolate cake (my favorite is Ina Garten’s) recipe and filled about 24 cupcake liners 2/3 full. I opted to use regular paper liners because it’s all I had on hand. While the cakes were cooking I whipped up a simple vanilla buttercream and assembled the sheep-heads. Okay so that sounds horribly cannibalistic… but no – you can rest assured, these were made of tootsie rolls and candy eyes. Next, top each frosted cupcake by carefully lining mini-marshmallows. I can’t lie, after a while I got impatient and was tempted to dunk the frosted cupcakes into the big bowl of marshmallows to save time. But trust me taking the time to place them individually really makes a difference. Lastly, make room for the tootsie-head, or just pop off a few marshmallows (and eat them, woops – sorry diet) and ta-da!
Follow the steps below to make your own! I’d love to see you guys give these a go! Baaaaaaaa :)
