Marshmallow Filled Chocolate Cupcakes

I have been on the look out for a yummy chocolate cupcake recipe since the chocolate cupcakes that I made for my daughter's birthday turned out way too dry... So, I had to try these out! I especially liked the idea of a marshmallow filling!! I just found the cutest tool that works AMAZING to core out cupcakes and I was excited for a chance to try it out. It worked like a charm and I found it for a couple of bucks on Walmart... So in love with this new tool! These cupcakes were fabulous, even without the marshmallow filling and I will definitely be using this chocolate cupcake recipe for my go to recipe!! Don't fret if the batter seems super runny, I panicked a bit, but they turned out awesome!

My youngest turned three this year and while I made this awesome three cake for his actual birthday, I made this fun tractor "cake" (made out of cupcakes) for his birthday party. It turned out super cute and everyone loved it! So, while I would normally use a chocolate frosting with these cupcakes, I had to go with a frosting that I could tint... Don't worry, I won't leave you hanging - that recipe is up tomorrow!

P.S. I have made these cupcakes a few times since this party and I paired them up with this chocolate frosting recipe... Too fabulous for words!! I have gotten so many compliments and requests for them and they are SO easy!!

2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil

10 large marshmallows
2 tablespoons light corn syrup

Add milk, oil and vanilla and continue to mix for an additional 2-3 minutes. Add boiling water and continue to mix for another 3-4 minutes. Batter will be VERY RUNNY! Line muffin tin with cupcake wrappers and fill each wrapper with 1/4 cup of batter. Bake for 15 minutes or until done. Cool completely. Core cupcakes, setting aside the removed part. To make marshmallow filling, place marshmallows and corn syrup in large microwave safe bowl. Heat in microwave for 1 minute. Stir well and add powdered sugar and milk. Mix until smooth. Pipe into cupcakes and then replace removed piece of cupcake. Frost with desired frosting.
