S’mores Cupcakes

Sometimes I have irrational fears.

The kind of fear that makes no sense to a level headed person…


For example, those creepy commercials and birthday cards of dogs with human teeth.

Who decided that was cute?

A dog doesn’t need to smile at me with human incisors to be adorable.  A dog on its own is more than enough.

I want the advertisers of the world to hear my cry.

I honestly had a dream last night that my dog was chewing her bone and looked over at me and smiled a big, toothy grin.

I woke up in a cold sweat.


Another irrational fear is when I am getting a pedicure, I am petrified that my feet are going to touch the boob of the pedicure lady.  She’s all hunched over my foot and I have had, on more than one occasion, a few near misses.

I don’t know why I am scared of this happening, but pedicures are never relaxing for me, because I am constantly on boob/foot high alert.

I’m sure the pedicure ladies are used to the boob-grazing, but I don’t want to be the culprit.

It’s completely irrational.


Now that we have established that I am a lunatic, I can easily share with you another irrational fear:

That you will get sick of my s’mores week.

I know it doesn’t make any sense…but it lays there in the back of my mind with Michael Meyers and pajama jeans.


Since I am trying to work through my issues, I am going to push forward and lay a S’mores Cupcake on ya.

It’s therapeutic.

S’mores Cupcakes.

Here’s the deal with these cupcakes:

They are pretty, they are easy and people will give you big, sloppy kisses if you make them.  That’s a fact.


First, give each cupcake a little graham cracker crust…
PhotobucketThen bake up your cupcakes.  I used a chocolate box mix.  But if you are looking for a good chocolate cupcake recipe, try THIS ONE.
PhotobucketAfter your cupcakes are baked, get your milk chocolate ready…
And melt it up.
PhotobucketGive each cupcake a chocolate bath.
PhotobucketMake some delicious Marshmallow Buttercream and frost your cupcakes.


Now, if you’re feeling fancy get your garnish on.

I lined a baking sheet with marshmallows…
PhotobucketAnd broiled them for 15 SECONDS!  Don’t walk away, because the toasting happens fast.  FAST!
PhotobucketThat’s it!  Now take a bite.  Don’t be scared.
PhotobucketIsn’t that crust pretty?

Don’t forget that on Friday I will be having a link up party, so you guys can share all your favorite s’mores treats with me!

And if you’re wondering where I got those cupcake liners, here’s a link.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  1. Who could possible get sick of S’mores?! These look so amazingly delicious! I am with you 100% on the animals with people teeth. It’s just not okay.

  2. I personally don’t go for the traditional s’more but I have to say I have been coming everyday. I check in to see what your creative genius has come up with for me to try. It’s definitely irrational to think we’ll get sick of s’mores week. My fiance benefits from it and I must admit I am anxious to try them out. Definitely rethinking the s’more.

  3. Wouldn’t you know, I LITERALLY just took a batch of s’mores cupcakes out of the oven and they are NOT THESE. I need to start going through my google reader in the morning intsead of at midnight, that’s what I’ve learned from this.

    Also. AMAZE.

  4. Ashley

    These look amazing!! I want one right now. And how can anyone ever get sick of a week full of s’mores recipes?!?!?! I wouldn’t worry about that 🙂

  5. Caroline

    I have a fear of the boob/arm pit/head graze when getting my hair shampooed at the salon… so uncomfortable. How do you get your batter so neatly into the cupcake cups?!!? mine never look so tidy!!

  6. I’ll let you accidentally graze my boob if it will get you over your fear.

    I’m TERRIFIED of the Thriller video. Even if I see normal people in street clothes doing the dance, I freak out. (Possibly because I grew up in a funeral home, but that’s a whole other can of worms.)

    I, personally, will not get tired of s’mores.

  7. Kasey

    I am all over S’more week. That my friend is my kind of week. These cupcakes look all kinds of yummy! Keep ’em coming! (I am totally looking forward to your post on the cookie you sneak peaked today, yum!)

  8. Yum those cupcakes look good. And don’t worry, I think your s’mores week is a great idea. And we don’t even have graham crackers here! But it’s fun to see how many thing you can make with one ingredient combination.

  9. Rena

    Seriously omg im rolling with that pedicure business. and theres no such thing as too much smores, cant wait to try some of these recipes!!!!

  10. Karen C.

    Okay, that looks super yummy…all your s’more’s week creations do so far. A suggestion to take it up a notch…make it a filled cupcake by adding some of that marshmallow buttercream to the inside of the cupcake to make it all ooey and gooey in the middle of the chocolate with the graham cracker crust.

  11. LOL boob-grazing I am laughing so hard. Hilarious. And I am so NOT getting sick of your s’mores week…in fact, I just made s’mores cookies because I wanted cookies and I’ve been drooling over all of your s’mores creations this week. I say keep it up!!

  12. Victoria

    I completely under the boob grazing worry. I get the same fear when I’m getting a hair cut and at the end when they lean in all close cause there’s that one hair they missed by your face. I worry about the face-boob graze.
    And I’m loving smores week! Keep ’em coming!

  13. Heather

    OMG, I am glad to hear I’m not the only one with the boob grazing fear during a pedicure! They are not relaxing for me at all, why do we have that fear?!! Thanks for the great cupcake recipe, I can’t wait to try them

  14. Dude. I am allllll too familiar with Foot/Boob High Alert. Trust. I mean, I totally get it. Your foot is like a cousin to your hand. Skin is skin, after all.

    I love how easy these cupcakes are. I say make it S’mores MONTH!!!!
