Marshmallow and Chocolate

These are the yummiest mini cupcakes I have made in a while.  They are Chocolate with Marshmallow icing and chocolate flakes.   You can add some mini marshmallows to the frosting for extra texture if you like. Find another Chocolate Cake recipe here.  Another frosting recipe is here.
