Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 35 mins
  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp Homemade Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cup yogurt or sour cream
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease muffin pan or prepare muffin liners.
  3. Combine softened butter, sugar, eggs, homemade vanilla extract, and yogurt in a bowl.
  4. Combine cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl.
  5. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  6. Fill muffin cups ¾ full. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool before Icing.
  7. To assemble, add icing so marshmallows will stick. Leave an area without marshmallows in the front for the head. Slice tootsie rolls in half. One half is the head. The other half should be cut into 4 long pieces. Use two pieces for ears and another piece for the tail. Add sprinkles for eyes and nose. Use icing to make the sprinkles stick. This was the tricky part for the kids, but we managed. :-)
