The best thing about these cupcakes is the marshmallow frosting. And I use marshmallow fluff to make life easier! (I’m a huge believer in making life easier, if you haven’t noticed!)
However, I have a certain addiction to that stuff – marshmallow fluff, I mean – and am known for eating the stuff by the spoonful. To the point that my husband had to hide the container from me last time we had it in the house. Yep, it’s that bad!
This time, when I sent him to the store for the ingredients and he saw “marshmallow fluff” written on the list, I had to swear I really needed it and marshmallow was the only possible way these cupcakes could even exist in the first place, and that I really, really needed a Halloween recipe on the blog, pretty please, I swear I won’t eat the whole thing in one sitting.
