These Marshmallow Puff Cupcakes are delightful chocolate cupcakes topped with a pillowy soft marshmallow buttercream and garnished with Little Debbie Marshmallow Puff Cookies for a fun and tasty springtime treat!
Ingredients
  • 1 box chocolate cake mix, plus ingredients on back of box
  • 1 small box chocolate instant pudding mix (just the dry mix)
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • ½ cup marshmallow fluff
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • About 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp milk, if needed
  • Rainbow sprinkles
  • About 16 Little Debbie Marshmallow Puff Cookies
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 muffin tins with about 16 paper liners. Set aside. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, prepare the cake batter according to package directions. Stir the box of chocolate pudding mix into the batter.
  2. Portion the batter evenly among the cupcake tins, filling about ¾ full. Bake for approx. 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool the cupcakes completely.
  3. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, marshmallow fluff and vanilla extract until creamy, about 2 minutes. Gradually add the powdered sugar, about one cup at a time, until light and fluffy. Add in the milk if frosting is too thick.
  4. Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes and dredge the sides of the frosted cupcakes in sprinkles. Top with a Marshmallow Puff Cookie. Serve immediately, or store leftovers airtight at room temperature.
