Chocolate Frosting

  • 1/4 cup 56 grams butter
  • 1 cup 200 grams granulated sugar
  • 6 standard or 60 mini 42 grams marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup 60 mL water
  • 1/2 cup 85 grams semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, whisk together butter, sugar, marshmallows, and water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and remove from heat. Whisk in chocolate chips until melted. Cool the frosting in the refrigerator, whisking energetically every few minutes until it reaches a spreadable texture (approximately 15-20 minutes).
  • Frost cooled cupcakes and serve. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator, depending on preference.
