I thought these were very good, with a ton of fudge flavor like a brownie and the added taste of toasted marshmallows and toasted pecans. I just felt these came out a little crispy and dry toward the edges, and that cooking them for a slightly shorter time might benefit. Thanks for posting!!!

These dynamite little chocolate cakes need to come with a warning label!! Once you start eating one, you won't be able to control yourself! I made as directed and used Kittencal's Chocolate Frosting/Icing (and thinned a little) for the topping. I tasted the first one still warm and my eyes simply rolled back in delight! If you love chocolate, these cupcakes are a real treat! Thanks again, Sharon!
