  2. ½ cup (50g) cocoa
  3. 1 cup (200g) sugar
  4. 1 tsp baking soda
  5. ½ tsp baking powder
  6. ½ tsp salt
  7. 2 eggs
  8. 2 tsp vanilla extract
  9. ¾ cup oil
  10. 1 tsp instant coffee dissolved in
  11. ¾ cup warm water
  12. Buttercream
  13. 1 cup butter/margarine
  14. 3 ½ cup confectioners’ sugar
  15. 2-3 Tbsp milk/non-dairy creamer
  16. Red and yellow food coloring
  1. Mini marshmallows on toothpicks
  2. Chocolate “Rock/Stone” Candies
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350/180. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the dry ingredients.
  2. Add in eggs, vanilla, coffee and oil. Mix until combined.
  3. Pour batter into cupcakes cups filling ¾ of the way to the top.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove cupcakes from oven and let cool completely.
  5. Make Buttercream: In the bowl of a standing mixer beat butter with confectioners sugar. Add in milk as needed to get a creamy frosting. Split the frosting into 2 bowls and color one bowl red and the other yellow. Fit a large piping bag with a large star tip. Using a spatula fill one side of the piping bag with the red buttercream and the other side with the yellow frosting.
  1. Decorate the cupcakes: Place “rock” candies in a circle on the top of the cupcakes. Pipe a dollop of red & yellow buttercream in the center of the rocks and top with the mini marshmallow skewers.
  2. Happy Baking!
