Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 dgrees C). Make sure your oven is set to fit two cupcake pans. Line two 12-cupcake pans with paper cupcake liners.
Step 2
In a medium bowl, mix together Cake Flour (1 3/4 cup), Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (1 cup), Baking Soda (1 1/4 teaspoon), and Salt (1/4 teaspoon) with a whisk. Set aside.
Step 3
In a bowl of an electric mixer, beat Unsalted Butter (1 1/2 cup) on medium-high speed with a paddle attachment until creamy, about 30 seconds. Gradually add Granulated Sugar (1 1/2 cup) and beat at high speed until light, about 3 minutes. Reduce the speed to medium and add the Egg (2), one at a time, mixing well after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Mix in the Vanilla Extract (2 teaspoon).
Step 4
Reduce the speed to low and begin adding Sour Cream (1 3/4 cup) and dry ingredients, alternating between the two and mixing between additions. Mix until just until blended.
Step 5
Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake cups. Bake for 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a cupcake comes out clean.
Step 6
Place a large metal bowl and whisk in freezer now for about 15 minutes so they are good and cold for the whipped frosting. Cool cupcakes for at least 5 minutes.
Step 7
Using a teaspoon, scoop a small well out of each cupcake. Place a marshmallow into each well and return to the oven to bake until the marshmallow puffs, about 5 more minutes. Remove the cupcakes and let them cool to room temperature.
Step 8
Remove the mixing bowl from the freezer and pour Heavy Cream (1 cup) into bowl. Beat on high for 2 minutes until fluffy, then add Hot Chocolate Mix (1 cup) and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Keep refrigerated.
Step 9
Use a piping bag to frost cupcakes. Top with Marshmallow (24) if desired. I even used our mini kitchen blow torch to lightly toast the marshmallows.
