I know what I want for my birthday!!!

...A batch of these scrumptious Rocky Road Cupcakes ala AliLilly!
Wow, seeing her cupcake picture (above) today, just made me want to throw the diabetes diet over for just one day...and what a treat to overthrow a diet for~
Check out the entire recipe entry at AliLilly! Yum!

This crafty mommy used a Devil Food cake mix, and the spectacular frosting instructions I copied from her blog, below:

1/4 c. melted butter
2 1/2 c. confectioners' sugar
3 tsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 (6 oz.) pkg. semi sweet chocolate chips, melted
1 c. chopped walnuts
1 1/2 c. miniature marshmallows

Combine your melted butter, sugar, milk and vanilla in bowl. Add egg; beat well blended. I used a hand mixer to beat my mixture. I melted my chocolate in a double boiler or you can melt in a microwave. Just follow the melting instructions on your package of chocolate. Add melted chocolate; mix well. Stir in walnuts and marshmallows. The mixture was very gooey so I placed it in the fridge for about 10 minutes to let it harden up a bit. Then I spread them over my cupcakes. I added extra mini marshmallows on top for "looks". This also makes enough frosting for two layers of cake.
