Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes With Marshmallow Frosting


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp milk

Marshmallow Frosting:

  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

2. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together granulated sugar, light-brown sugar, and cocoa powder. Pour in melted butter and use a wood spoon to stir until combine. Mix in eggs and vanilla extract. Stir in milk. Add dry ingredients and mix just until combine (batter will be thick).

3. Divide batter among 12 paper lined muffin cups filling each about 2/3 full (about 1/4 cup batter in each). Bake in preheated oven 16 - 20 minutes (lesser for gooier brownies). Allow to cool in muffin tin several minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Cool completely then pipe Marshmallow Frosting over cupcakes.

For the Marshmallow Frosting:

1. Add egg whites, granulated sugar, and cream of tarter to a heat proof bowl of an electric mixer. Set bowl over a saucepan filled with a few inches of simmering water.

2. Heat mixture, whisking constantly until egg whites are warm to the touch and sugar has dissolved, about 3 -4 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer bowl to electric stand mixer fit with a whisk attachment. Beat mixture beginning on low speed and gradually increasing to high speed, until stiff glossy peaks form, about 5-7 minutes. Add vanilla during the last 10 seconds of mixing. For best results serve immediately.

I tried this recipe the other day. Very simple to make, the quantities were also accurate as I made exactly twelve tasty cupcakes! I would recommend this recipe as it is: quick, simple and delicious.

My little sister would go absolutely crazy over these. Cupcakes, brownies, and marshmallows are her three favorite foods. Maybe I should make her these for her birthday. has tons of great coupons that could be used in this or other recipes!
