Rockyroad Cupcakes

Posted on October 20, 2013 by Jennifer Porter

My friend Paul is an amazing baker and he shared this recipe for rocky road cupcakes.These cupcakes are a great way to get kids helping decorate and get creative. And the use of chocolate, marshmallows and jubes definitely keeps their interest up. These cupcakes won’t rise as much due to the weight of added nuts etc but it produces a lovely dense, moist cupcake.

Note: The use of golden or unrefined castor sugar adds slight caramel flavour to the cupcakes. If you don’t have any use 75g of white castor sugar with 25g soft brown sugar (or muscavado sugar).

Set oven 180 degrees C
