Snowy Road Cupcakes

I made these to bring to my friend's New Year's Eve party. They're pretty much traditional 'Rocky Road' cupcakes but since there was so much snow on the roads I decided to call them 'Snowy Road' cupcakes on the tricky ride over to her house.
We enjoyed these after dinner while playing DJ Hero until the New Year arrived.
