Kid-Made Cocoa Cupcakes

I’m only a kid, and this is the first recipe I’ve created. I spent a year perfecting these cupcakes, asking advice from owners of local bakeries and my baker friends. I make them for every special occasion in my family and sometimes just for fun. If you want the cupcakes to taste more like hot cocoa, double the amount of hot cocoa mix. This recipe works well with multiple frosting flavors: mint, maple syrup, vanilla, marshmallow and buttercream. Decorate them any way you want! —Maia Hubscher, South Orange, New Jersey
