Rocky Road Mini Cupcakes

These are to die for!!!


Amount Ingredient 24 reg. size Cupcakes or about 50 mini ones. Just put that down below…


You will need:
Mini Cupcakes Liners
Chocolate Cake mix (I used Philsbury Dark Chocolate.)
Chopped Pecans
Whole Almonds
Chocolate Chips

Powdered Sugar (1 Ib… approx: 3 3/4 cups.)
6 tsp. Milk
1/4 Bag Melted Chocolate Chips
1 Stick of Softened Unsalted Butter
1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract

Directions: Fill each cupcake liner with chocolate batter about 1/2 full. Then sprinkle (a few) chopped pecans and plop one Almond in the center. Add 2 chocolate chips then fold all nuts and chips inside mix with butter knife. Be Careful not to make the outer rim of the liner messy with this. . *You wanna make sure you don’t fill the liners with too much mix, cause it will eventually overflow when done baking. Cook @ 350 for 15 mins or until cooked completely.

Make up the Icing, by the softening butter, then mixing in Powdered Sugar…. Vanilla…. MELTED chocolate Chips and milk. Icing should be thick and fluffy.

Use Icing bag to pipe Chocolate Buttercream on tops however you like. Decorate top with more crushed pecans, and put 1 marshmallow in center of icing.

*Optional…. when I made these I didn’t use all the icing or cake mix, since I only made 12 mini. But it makes 24 reg. size Cupcakes…. and about 50 or so mini ones. ;) (as listed above)

Hope you enjoy! :) And If you have any questions you can email me at: [email protected]

Hi! Your cupcakes look great! I would like to try to make them but I don't know what it is Chocolate Cake mix. Is it ready to used cake powder?


These look yummy! Where did you get those cupcake liners? I've looked everywhere for them and can't find any! Thanks.


CannBakes, I may be wrong but I don't think they are cupcake liners they look like nut cups, I work at a cake and candy supply store and we sell a product that looks exactly like these and they are called nut cups. HTH


Thank you so much!! We have used these for two groom's cakes and they have been a major hit! I really don't like cake...anymore that is :D....and I sat down and ate a whole one and they were extra large....enjoyed every minute of it too and wished I could have had another!!!


Some curious for the buttercream, what size bag of chocolate chips to you use? or how many cups is a 1/4 bag. I buy mine in a 2kg bag so i'm kinda clueless there
