Foodie Friday - Hot Chocolate Cuppies!

Hi y'all...
I was over looking at My Pink Stamper's blog and she had a recipe for Hot Chocolate Cupcakes.  Sounds good, right?!?!  And with this cold weather I thought it was perfect. I halved the recipe and it made 12 perfectly.  I used egg beaters so 1 1/2 eggs was no problem tha way.   I thought I'd do a cream cheese frosting, but then I thought that I should try to do somethig with marshmallows!!!  SO, I tried something.  My oven usually takes a few minutes longer than recommended so at the 16 minute mark I put some mini marshmallows on top of four of the cuppies and put them in for four more minutes.  They turned out beautifully!  :)
