High Hat Cupcakes

These are awesome cupcakes! I finally did it, even Morgan loved them...and how did I know this? Well, at first I wasn't so sure. He ate his first cupcake and seemed like he really enjoyed it. He even said it was one of the best ones yet. However, I know he really liked them because the following morning our little lady woke up at 4am and Morgan went and laid in her bed with her to get her to go back to sleep. At around 6:30am I went in to wake him up so that he could get ready to go to work and he jolted awake and looked like he didn't know where he was. then he asked me if he had been downstairs already. I explained that as far as I knew he had fallen asleep in Anna's bed with her and that was all. He told me that he must have dreamt getting up from Anna's bed and going downstairs to have one of the cupcakes...that's how delicious they delicious he dreams about them. Yeah!

This cupcake has a delicious dark chocolate cupcake bottom which I topped with a wonderful marshmallow meringue type frosting. The frosting was not as light as I thought it would be, which I found was because it had to withhold the weight of the topping. The marshmallow creme was perfect, not too sweet and not too sticky.

The best part was the chocolate coating. Completing this part of the cupcakes reminded me of my first job working the Dairy Queen drive thru..and who doesn't love a chocolate dipped cone? I made the chocolate coating in a double boiler on the stove and once it had cooled, I carefully dipped the top half of the cupcake in the chocolate and set them out to dry.

I wish I had taken a better picture of this cupcake,but they were so delicious that most of them were gone before I even got the chance to take photos of them!
