S'mores Cupcakes

 This recipe originally appeared on my first blog, Amy's Cooking Adventures, in March 2011.

  
With the warm weather and Memorial Day coming up this weekend, I am starting to dream about S’mores!

I pretty much love S’mores in any way, shape, or form, so today I’m sharing a simple and delicious S’more Cupcake!

With chocolate, graham crackers, and ooey gooey mashmallows, you can just never go wrong!



S’mores Cupcakes
An Amy's Cooking Adventures Original Recipe

8 graham crackers (about 1 ½ cups of crumbs)
6 tbsp butter, melted
2 tbsp sugar
½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 Devil’s Food Chocolate cake mix
            Eggs, oil, & water for mix
24 marshmallows


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line 2 muffin tins with paper liners.

In a food processor, pulse graham crackers until finely ground.  In a medium mixing bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter.

Spoon 1 tablespoon graham cracker mixture into each cupcake liner.  Press flat with the bottom of a cup.  Bake for 5 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Sprinkle 8-10 chocolate chips on top of each graham cracker crust.

While the crusts bake, mix together the cake mix according to package directions.  Divide cake batter evenly into the cupcake liners on top of the graham cracker crust and chocolate.  Bake for 16-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Remove from the oven.  Do not turn the oven off.

Let the cupcakes stand about 5 minutes.  Once they are cool enough to handle, move cupcakes to a cookie sheet.  Carefully place 1 marshmallow on top of each cupcake.  Return to the oven for 3 minutes, working in batches if necessary.

After 3 minutes, quickly press down on each marshmallow to cover the top of the cupcake.  Turn the oven to broil.  Place the cupcakes in the oven under the broiler.    Once the marshmallows are browned, remove from the oven and let cool.

Makes 24 cupcakes

  9. I made these twice recently. The first time I used regular marshmallows, and while those turned out yummy, I found having to press down the marshmallows a little nerve-wracking and messy. I had the bright idea to get the jumbo roasting marshmallows and slice them into three sections. One section ended up being the perfect size to cover the top of the cupcake (so no pressing!), and the cupcakes ended up looking more uniform (and just as yummy). :-)
