A friend gave me this recipe when I first moved into my neighborhood 40 years ago. It might seem more time consuming than it is, but it's easy and the results are incredible. —Monique Caron, Buxton, Maine

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 3, 2014

"These were really good. I have no intention of ever going through the process of filling them again. The marshmallow icing is fine on the outside!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 4, 2014

"As soon as I got the Feb/Mar 2014 issue, I knew I wanted to try these. DELICIOUS! I can't wait until my grandchildren get a taste. As another reviewer mentioned, I only needed half the amount of filling. The cupcakes themselves were fantastic; filling topped them off nicely. I will definitely make these again."
