S'Mores Cupcakes

I saw this recipe on another blog and just had to try it!  I become weak in the knees when it comes to S'Mores...campfire S'Mores, Pop Tarts, ice cream, anything that contains graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate.  I knew I would probably melt over these cupcakes.  And yes, I am lying in a puddle on the floor right now, completely melted from the wonderful goodness that is S'Mores Cupcakes.  They were a perfect addition to our 4th of July weekend.  I highly suggest you give them a try!

S'Mores Cupcakes
1 sleeve graham crackers
1 t sugar
1/2 stick butter, melted
1 brownie mix + ingredients on box
1 bag large marshmallows
cupcake liners

Crush graham crackers.  Add butter and sugar to make a basic crust.  Drop a generous spoonful of crumb mixture into each cupcake liner and press down with a cup bottom.  Stand up one marshmallow in each cup.  Prepare brownie mix according to package directions.  Pour into each cup.  Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

1 jar marshmallow cream
1 Hershey bar

Top each cupcake with a spoonful of marshmallow cream and spread around.  Place frosted cupcakes on a baking sheet.  Place under the broiler, watching carefully, to toast the marshmallow.  Garnish with extra graham cracker crumbs and one square of chocolate.

*My Notes:
- The crust recipe makes way too much.  Save the rest for another time.
- Do not fill cupcake liners all the way to the very top.  Save a little bit of space.  I think this recipe actually makes about 13-14 cupcakes, depending on what brownie mix you use and how thick each cupcake's crust is.
- While baking, the batter will poof up and then sink back down before it's done.
- Refrigerate (or maybe even freeze) the chocolate before garnishing each cupcake.  My chocolate got very soft and melted down onto the cupcake.  It was really warm in my kitchen...I should have immediately placed the cupcakes in the refrigerator after adding the chocolate.
- Do not allow your arm to touch the inside of the oven door while you are watching the marshmallows toast.  This will burn your arm and cause you to be in pain for the rest of the day.
- Bring two napkins with you when you eat your cupcake.  Then get two more napkins when you go back for seconds.

Although I am on Weight Watchers (and so is the husband), I still enjoy LOOKING at good stuff! He calls it "food porn". ;) I did make some WW-friendly mini-s'mores the other night, though. Somehow, I'm sure they don't compare with these beauties!

These look delicious! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your blog is so fun! I love the Venting post. Now that's an idea- I tend to do a lot of venting maybe I should try it anonymously - that would be better. Your little ones are adorable!!

I'm glad you added the tip about not touching your arm on the oven. I always forget that one little thing! Ha ha
