Skip The Frosting CupcakesSkip The Frosting Cupcakes!

Too rushed for frosting? Place a large marshmallow on each cupcake five minutes before they finish baking. It will melt and make a yummy toasted marshmallow topping.

Or put 1/2 a graham cracker on top of a chocolate muffin, add a marshmallow - and you have S'Mores Cupcakes!

I am feeling overwhelmed lately, I want to organize but I don't know where to start? I really like this idea though!

FUN IDEA FOR A HOT DAY - Chocolate Ice Cubes!
NOTE: Blog post is in French - Google translation:

Chocolate ice
• 200ml milk
• 50ml water
• 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
• 1 teaspoon sugar
• 1 tablespoon instant coffee (optional)
• 70g dark chocolate (66%)

Milk with Vanilla
• 600ml milk
• 60g sugar
• 1 vanilla pod

For chocolate ice (12 to 14)

Finely chop chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl.
Pour milk and water in a saucepan, add sugar, cocoa and instant coffee and mix carefully to avoid lumps. Bring to a boil over medium heat then remove from heat.
Pour mixture over the chocolate, melt 5 minutes then mix gently with a wooden spoon to get a cream smooth and creamy.
Cool and pour into an ice cube tray and freeze.
