Molten Marshmallow Cupcake

If you’ve yet to try molten chocolate cake, you are missing out on a fabulous experience. This is a rich and delicious form of chocolate cake which is fairly quick and easy to make and to top it all, it has an awesome presentation. Serve warm from the oven, when the marshmallow is still warm and gooey, so it flows out of these mini cakes when your guests cut into them.
                                                     Look at all the gooey deliciousness

My daughter LOVES Domino's Choco lava Cakes and now these molten marshmallow cupcakes are her current favourite.

Molten Marshmallow Cupcakes
Adapted from the October,2004 issue of Sunset Magazine

1 1/3 cup dark or semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup (55 grams) butter, cut into cubes
1/3 cup (75 grams) caster sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 cup (110 grams) all purpose flour
6 large marshmallows
Icing sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 177 degree Celsius.
Line 6 muffin tins.
In a saucepan over very low heat, stir chocolate chips and butter until melted and smooth (you can microwave also). Remove from heat and whisk in caster sugar, eggs and vanilla until well blended. Stir in flour.
Fill six muffin tins about halfway. Press a marshmallow into the center of the batter in each tin. Spoon remaining batter equally over marshmallows, completely covering.
Bake in the center of a oven until tops are puffed up and crackly, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool about 10 minutes. Sprinkle tops with icing  sugar, if desired. Serve warm.
