Start with a milk chocolate brownie cupcake, add more chocolate (in the form of mini chocolate chips), mini marshmallows, and chopped almonds and you have a rocky road cupcake. To make the rocky road cupcake unforgettable, add a chocolate meringue frosting toasted with a culinary torch (or your broiler)!
Rocky Road Cupcake Recipe
Note: I originally published this recipe on Paula Deen’s website in 2010. I have since developed the Ultimate Chocolate Cupcake recipe. If you prefer a lighter chocolate cupcake recipe to a dense brownie-like cupcake, try using the Ultimate Chocolate Cupcake recipe, folding in the marshmallows, chocolate chips, and almonds from the recipe below, and using the frosting from the recipe below.
