How to Make It

Step 1

Beat shortening at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition.

Step 2

Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; add to egg mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

Step 3

Place paper baking cups in muffin pans, and spoon 1/4 cup batter into each cup.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 18 minutes or until done. Quickly insert a chocolate nugget into center of each warm cupcake; top each with 4 to 5 marshmallows, gently pressing into melted chocolate. Sprinkle with pecans, if desired.

Step 5

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Hershey's Nuggets.
