Things Go Better with Coca-Cola Cupcakes!

Things go better with Coca-Cola Cupcakes!
For some time I've wanted to try these Coca-Cola cupcakes and I found the perfect recipe on the Coca-Cola website!

Did you know that "Things go better with Coke!" was Coke's slogan from 1963 to 1966? Check out this link to see all Coke's slogans...it's pretty interesting.

Things go better with Coca-Cola Cupcakes!

Here's the recipe:
(fyi) I did not make my frosting chocolate and I did not use pecans.)

Cupcakes (Makes 24 regular cupcakes)

2 cups sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups small marshmallows
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup Coca-Cola®
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cupcake tin with liners.

In a bowl, sift sugar and flour. Add marshmallows. In saucepan, mix butter, oil, cocoa, and Coca-Cola. Bring to a boil and pour over dry ingredients; blend well. Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk just before adding to batter along with eggs and vanilla extract, mixing well. Pour into a lined cupcake pan 2/3's full, and bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool and then frost.

Frosting:
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons cocoa
6 tablespoons Coca-Cola
1 box (16 ounces) confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans

For frosting, combine butter, cocoa and Coca-Cola in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and pour over confectioners' sugar, blending well. Add vanilla extract and pecans. Spread over cupcakes. Serve with a coke!

Have a great week!

  1. This seems like an interesting mix. Did they end up tasting like Coke? I am quite intrigued. I would love to make these, but I am positive they would not turn out as wonderful as yours look.

    In the picture the frosting is white. In the recipe it is chocolate. Very disappointed my cupcakes don't look like yours.
