Chocolate Coca-Cola Cupcakes!

Ok, NW Iowa is back to cold temperatures! It's up and down lately! Kinda annoying! Perfect day to bake though!!

Hold on to your panties, this recipe is going to blow you away! These cupcakes are the most moist, chocolatey, delicious thing I have tasted in a while. And they are such a cinch too! I made cupcakes, but the recipe I found was actually for a 9x13 cake. So you can make it even easier if you make it in there!

Drum roll please!!!!!!  *#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

Look at that cute thing!! Actually it makes me almost want to barf because I've been sneaking cupcake after cupcake after finger full of the Coca-Cola frosting for the past few hours!! :) So I'm kind of sugar overloaded... I could use some salt now. Haha.

1/3 cup cocoa
1 cup Coca-Cola
2 cups flour
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs

  • Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until butter melts. Remove from heat.
  • Combine flour, sugar, and baking soda in a large bowl; stir in butter mixture. Add eggs, and stir until blended. Stir in buttermilk, vanilla, and marshmallows.
  • Pour into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking pan. Bake at 350ยบ for 25 to 30 minutes or until a pick inserted in center comes out clean.
