These S’mores Cupcakes are so decadently rich, yet easy to make – they will be a hit at your next gathering! Or make them just for your family, I promise they won’t be disappointed!
Simple use of a box mix for the cake part of the cupcake. Your favorite chocolate cake mix is fine. Any light chocolaty cake is fine (I did try using a brownie mix during testing and it didn’t work as well).
S’mores Cupcakes Graham Cracker Crust
Mix together the crust ingredients and press into a cupcake tray.
After the batter has been mixed according to the box instructions pour on top of the crust and fill to about 3/4 full. Bake at 350°F according to the instructions. Use a toothpick to check if the cupcake has completed cooking – the toothpick should come out clean.
S’mores cupcakes have a marshmallow frosting that is so deliciously gooey all you need after making these cupcakes is a campfire!
Beat the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla until it is completely blended. Then add the marshmallow creme. Beat again until completely mixed and creamy.
I like to use mini Hershey’s chocolate bars and mini marshmallows for the decoration, I think it makes it look really good. There’s no mistaking what kind of cupcake it is! You can use anything you like though, you could grate some chocolate on there. Use sprinkles. You still have the marshmallow taste in the frosting….
Try these cupcakes and see if your kids don’t love them!
