Description

A quick and easy “semi-homemade” dense butterscotch cupcake with a creamy marshmallow fluff center, topped with a perfectly sweet and fluffy butterscotch frosting. Top each cupcake with a mini marshmallow or your favorite sprinkles.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CUPCAKES:
  • 1 box 18.25 Oz Box Of White Cake Mix
  • Additional Required Ingredients Specified On Cake Mix Box (typically Water, Eggs And Oil)
  • 1 package (3.4 Oz Box) Butterscotch Instant Pudding Mix
  • 1 jar 7 Oz Jar Of Marshmallow Fluff
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 2 sticks Unsalted Butter, Room Temperature
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 4 cups Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ cups Heavy Cream
  • ½ cups Butterscotch Chips, Melted
  • Optional Garnish: Mini Marshmallows Or Sprinkles

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350F. Line two 12-count cupcake pans with paper liners.

Prepare the white cake mix batter as directed on the box. Mix in a packet of butterscotch pudding mix. Scoop the batter into the cupcake pans and bake for 18-20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Remove the cupcakes from the pan and place them on a cooling rack to cool completely.

To fill the cupcakes: Fill a piping bag, fitted with a large round decorating tip, with marshmallow fluff. Using a knife, or an apple corer, cut a small hole in the top of each cupcake. Fit the tip of the piping bag into the hole and squeeze the marshmallow fluff inside each cupcake. If you have a little overflow at the top of the cupcake, that’s fine, you’ll cover it with frosting later.

For the frosting: In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, cream the butter and vanilla until light and fluffy. With the mixer on medium speed, gradually add the powdered sugar. Slowly add the cream to the mixture. Lastly add the melted butterscotch chips. If the icing is too thick for your liking, add a little more cream. If it’s too thin, add more powdered sugar.

Fill a piping bag, fitted with a large star tip, with the frosting and swirl the frosting on top of each cupcake. Top with a mini marshmallow or sprinkles.

My husband’s review after tasting these, “I LOVE THEM!” He’s pretty even keeled and laid back so for him to pronounce his LOVE of something is serious. Love how simple they are but how gourmet they taste! Will definitely be adding these to my cupcake resume. :)
