I had some leftover 3 musketeer hot cocoa minis from Christmas. I decided instead of throwing them out, I would stuff them into cupcakes. I used just a regular box cake mix that I had in the cabinet. I used my pretty pink Kitchenaid mixer to prepare it according to the box directions.
I lined my brand new cupcake pan with cute little snowmen liners that were on sale after Christmas.
I poured the batter about half way up and added the unwrapped minis to each cup (after, of course, I took a few photos of the chocolate). I covered the minis with the remaining batter.
I slapped those bad boys in the oven for a quick 17 minute bake in the oven.
After taking them out of the oven and letting them cool completely...
I iced them with a chocolate cream icing. I decorated one cupcake and had a little photo shoot with it.
